Like Stephen suggested, the configs and mappings are configured different. My 
appraoch for this (debian not ubuntu, and I'm lazy) was to just configure 
mythfrontend to react to the unmapped values. So you can just go to config 
screen, if you call the menu with blue-button (like I do) try to map menu to 
blue-button in frontend instead of mapping blue-button to m in system.
