When I look at my old production system that was built from PPA with
v29 and upgraded to v30 it has the 2 scripts for mythtv-setup and
mythfrontend. On a fresh Ubuntu 18.04 system only mythfrontend now has
a script. It seems that the mythtv-setup script has been eliminated.
Maybe with things moving to systemd everywhere the scripts will not be
used at all in the future??
Clearly on the system I built from source there are no scripts and
mythfrontend works just fine.
