 using raspberry pi ubuntu mate wily and installing mythbuntu ppa 0.28.

 After launching the frontend, the frontend GUI never appears. The last
 message in the log is
 2016-03-01 15:41:43.414136 N  QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb
 With gdb I established that it is in a call to setuid. The code confirms
 that a call is made to setuid shortly after that log message.
 After discussing with the developers they recommended to use example code
 from from https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=16897
 This is working and resolves the problem. I will attach the patch
