1 minute 55 seconds after login my frontend started:
bill at ofc0:/etc/systemd/system$ cat mythtv-frontend@\:0.service
Ignore the service name, just my choice. mythfrontend must access a
valid config.xml (if User isn't specified, then /root/.mythtv/config.xml
would be used.
Also, I added Type=notify in my mythtv-backend.service file (as Richard
pointed out.) I don't think the frontend needs to wait on mysql as the
backend already does that (on my box.)
And, finally, graphical-session.target doesn't exist on my 17.04 Ubuntu
host, so I used graphical.target.
And really finally, note that my executable is in /usr/local/bin, adjust
