A perfect example of style over substance
No, it's all self-inflicted by MythTV-0.22rc. Apparently that's the "new design" which has taken them the last year to implement.it could be the ubuntu side of mythbuntu giving you some of the problems.
You follow the mythtv-users list, don't you? First, you're using a release candidate and there have been several people with UI response problems. Seems some have been solved by fixing permissions on directories used for caching UI elements. Others needed to install a missing font. (No firsthand knowledge here; I'm waiting for .22-fixes to stabilize in a few months.)mlord said:The default Mythbuntu "theme" should be called "slowbuntu". Tons of mysterious 2-second pauses between screens, a font too huge to be useful on a widescreen, and only 3-4 lines of text on most menus.
Yeah, they can be a bit...abrupt...sometimes, eh?mlord said:Ah.. a candidate for the Myth Development Team!
Looks like they are trying to get 0.22 out because there has been such a long delay since the last version. They probably want to get the new MythUI out into the wild to do a general improvement, and then do some clean-up and touch-ups in 0.23.Ideally, the gap between .22 and .23 will be much, much
shorter than ever before, though I will refrain from making any
Sounds really encouraging as a future direction for the project.the archtypical MythTV developer: said:Thought I would share with you all that I am working on a new theme that I hope to have done for .23.
The theme is going to be released under a fairly restrictive license that disallows copying or derivative works, so I'm not anticipating this ever being distributed with Myth. 2) I'm using proprietary fonts that I cannot/will not distribute. I will provide links for where you can purchase the fonts (about $15) but will leave it up to the user to procure them.
.. it's fun to be a part of something lots of people in the community use.
