It's easier than all of that. 
1. ssh  -XC front_end_name
2. mythfrontend
3. hit Page Down on the first menu screen and you'll be at Set up/Utilities.

Uninstalling the front-end software doesn't delete the theme settings 
stored in the MySQL database on the back-end.

Login to your front-end as root and type the following *EXACTLY*:

mysql mythconverg -e "delete from settings where hostname=\"`uname -n`\""

If successful, it will respond by telling you how many records it 
deleted.  This will erase all of your front-end settings for that 
machine only.  The next time you start the front-end it will prompt you 
for your language and launch the setup screen.
