Hopefully giving your the correct information. On the current Frontend I'm working on up here in the Computer Room the command "mythfrontend --version" gives the following:
MythTV Version : v0.28-2-g15cf421
MythTV Branch : fixes/0.28
Network Protocol : 88
Library API : 0.28.20160309-1
QT Version : 5.5.1
Should be fairly up-to-date as installed Ubuntu 16.04.3 and MythTV on this computer just a few days ago.

Currently /usr/share/mythtv/themes contains (via 'ls' command):
classic, default, defaultmenu, default-wide, DVR, mediacentermenu, MythCenter, MythCenter-wide, mythuitheme.dtd (must be a file), slave, Terra.
ls $HOME/.mythtv displays:
3rdParty, cache, channels, confix.xml, MythBrowser, themes, tmp.
The themes directory contains:
Arclight-master, Steppes, and Willi
As for the log, looking at "/var/log/mythtv/mythfrontend.log". Found a line "Using configuration directory = /home/barry/.mythtv" with "N thread_unknown mythdirs.cpp:194 (InitializeMythDirs)" preceding. (Probably unimportant -- I have no idea.)
