It is NOT necessary to build/install myththemes, as others have suggested.
The Terra theme is installed as part of installing mythtv.  The myththemes
component is *extra* themes, in addition to the handful that are included in
mythtv.  Also, you did run "make install" as root, right?

Do you have remnants of an older install from your distro, in addition to
what you built and installed?  For example, do you have 0.21 stuff in
/usr/share/mythtv/themes, and 0.22 stuff in /usr/LOCAL/share/mythtv/themes
(emphasis added)?

The first line of output says:

2009-12-04 13:04:28.286 Using runtime prefix = /usr

For hand-built mythtv, this should be /usr/local.  So this would indicate to
me it's running a pre-installed mythtv-setup that you didn't intend.  Or you
ran configure --prefix=/usr, which you generally don't want to do.

Hope this helps!
