tgm4883and you did the killall command?21:29
qwebirc96668i had already force quit21:29
tgm4883mcc-backend is different, you need to run that command21:29
qwebirc96668mcc-backend: no process found21:30
tgm4883although I'm wondering if something got broken in the gnome version that ships with 15.0421:30
tgm4883oh, sudo that process21:30
tgm4883sudo killall mcc-backend21:30
qwebirc96668mcc-backend: no process found21:31
tgm4883so lets try this again21:32
tgm4883mythbuntu-control-centre from the command l ine21:32
tgm4883and pastebin any error messages21:32
qwebirc96668its saying that primary backend is installed21:33
qwebirc96668when i click system roles21:34
tgm4883in a terminal, do this21:38
tgm4883"dpkg -l | grep myth"21:38
tgm4883and pastebin the output21:38
tgm4883qwebirc96668: ok, so the master backend is installed21:42
tgm4883I would recommend switching to the update repo21:42
tgm4883there are a bunch of fixes in there, the mythtv you are running is pretty old21:42
tgm4883almost 1 year of fixes21:42
qwebirc96668i have installed front end and a few other things. i have paste bin those errors http://pastebin.com/X92tdCUy21:43
tgm4883the frontend was also installed, I see it in the previous pastebin21:45
tgm4883it's possible all those errors are coming from -bare, but they appear to not stop it from installing21:45
qwebirc96668was it. i have tick all the repositories21:45
tgm4883try this21:45
tgm4883close mythbuntu-control-centre21:46
tgm4883from a terminal do21:46
tgm4883'sudo apt-get remove mythbuntu-bare-client'21:46
tgm4883then try opening mythbuntu-control-centre again and seeing if you still get a bunch of errors21:46
qwebirc96668(standard_in) 1: syntax error /var/lib/dpkg/info/mythbuntu-bare-client.postrm: 11: [: Illegal number:21:47
tgm4883sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/mythbuntu-bare-client.postrm21:48
qwebirc96668no errors doing that21:49
tgm4883ok, lets try this21:50
tgm4883sudo apt-get -f install21:50
tgm4883and see what it wants to do before you say yes21:50
qwebirc966680 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 8 not to upgrade.21:52
tgm4883now how about21:52
tgm4883sudo apt-get remove mythbuntu-bare-client21:52
qwebirc96668Package 'mythbuntu-bare-client' is not installed, so not removed21:53
tgm4883ok cool21:53
qwebirc966680 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 8 not to upgrade.21:53
tgm4883now start mythbuntu-control-centre21:53
