[mythtv-users] Gentoo 0.24.2 mythbuntu theme?

FWIW, on my Mythbuntu installations, themes are downloaded to 
~/.mythtv/themes, not /usr/share/mythtv/themes where they used to go.  I 
have found the new theme download setup to be dodgy at best, but seemed to 
have better success (probably purely coincidental) after opening up 
permissions full throttle on the ~/.mythtv/themes directory.  I had one 
installation that absolutely refused to download themes (same symptoms 
you're experiencing), so I manually copied the theme I wanted from a machine 
that I COULD download from to its ~/.mythtv/themes folder.

Since doing fresh installs on all my machines, I have had no download 
issues....not that a fresh install of the OS should make a difference.

I seem to be going steeply downhill here now.  I read a post about
this having to do with permissions on /usr/share/mythtv/themes, which
made me notice that the MythBuntu theme wasn't even in there.  I made
the mistake of trying to delete and re-download the theme, and I
simply can't.

I can't download any themes at this point at all.  I've restarted the
frontend and backend, any no luck.  What on earth am I missing here?

Can I just manually download it to /usr/share/mythtv/themes from somewhere?
