I have run sudo locate -u and then locate mythren and then locate contrib
|grep myth with no results. Looks like somehow the directory did not
install. Can anyone suggest how to install the contrib directory (or just
the mythrename.pl file) without overwriting a running install?

This is sounding more like an ubuntu/deb package question so I will
understand if there are no answers.
