If you only want to install backend, install with "apt-get install 
mythtv-backend mythtv-frontend" will just install mythtv and is 
dependencies, (note you need mythtv-frontend install to be able to 
select language on first entry into mythtv-setup, after this you can 
safely uninstall mythtv-frontend.

If you want a full frontend setup, then install mythbuntu-desktop for 
the full Mythbuntu experience.
