#3377 closed patch (fixed)

Add "Run Setup" button to mythwelcome popup menu to start mythtv-setup.

With the addition of per channel commercial detection settings and storage groups etc. I have found the need to periodically run mythtv-setup.

I run mythwelcome as the "magic application" for my XSession as it is a dedicated mythtv appliance, as such I find it inconvenient to have to kill the XSession, edit .xinitrc and comment out mythfrontend, uncomment mythtv-setup and run startx. Then backout the .xinitrc changes and restart X after finishing with mythtv-setup.

So instead on complaining... I added a button to the popup dialog to run mythtv-setup, it has the same command line configuration option as mythfrontend in the F11 config screen (I copied it from FE setup).

I hope this is of use and can make it into trunk.

As per discussion on -dev mailing ( list I have attached an updated patch that adds a keybinding to mythwelcome context to launch mythtv-setup. This patch replaces the previous one.

The keybinding is undefined by default as per the discussion.

(In [13742]) Patch by Roo to add a key binding to run mythtv-setup from MythWelcome?.

Just noticed that you have to restart MythWelcome? if you change any of the key bindings before they take effect. Don't see an easy way to fix this at the moment.

Closes #3377.
