probably. I have /usr/share/mythtv/themes

But setting 

chmod -R go+rwX  /usr/share/mythtv/themes

does not help. and setting 

chmod -R go+rwX  /usr/share/mythtv/

does not help either.

My setup is 0.24.1_p20111030 on gentoo linux. Backend running as user
mythtv, frontend with  my user ID. So I have also tried

chmod -R go+rwX ~/.mythtv

as I do not know if I, or mythtv is the user downloading the theme.
but this again does not change anything. Directories ~/.mythtv/tmp and
~/.mythtv/themes exist.

So maybe some temp directory somewhere? /tmp and /var/tmp are world
writable. So I am a bit stuck now :-)
