Every time I have seen this error it means you do not have a
"~/.mythtv/config.xml" file or its contents are not valid. Also
sometimes the MythTV backend is running under a different user account
then what you use in a terminal session. I believe that Mythbuntu runs
under theuser account "mythtv". So your personal account has a
"~/.mythtv/config.xml" file but the "mythtv" account does not.
I also run the MythTV backend under a "mythtv" user account so I
symlinked a "mythtv" "~/.mythtv/config.xml" file to my regular user
account "~/.mythtv/config.xml" file. I did this just oncase I made a
change to it both accounts got that change.
There are comments in the wiki about testing Lossless Cut when you run
the backend under a "mythtv" account. See:
You would never have received that message if you did not have the
python bindings already installed.
You can prove that by running in a terminal session:
> mythpython --version
You can even try:
> sudo -umythtv mythpython --version
I hope this helps.
