The *buntu repositories should include a debug package for the MythTV 
packages, though getting it may involve adding new repos or similar.  
You'll need to find and install the debug package.

Unfortunately, no *buntu user has taken the time to fill out details at


so it will likely involve interpreting the information at the link I 
gave in that section and applying the information to MythTV.  Once you 
do that, please (for the next *buntu user to come this way) fill in the 
details of how to install the debug packages for MythTV.
