This is a gnome panel application, so to run it normally, you would right click on one of your panels and select "Add to
Panel..." Then select MythTV Status from the list.
There is a way to run it in debug mode which is to run ./mythtvstatus.py run-in-window. This will run the program in a window
and print any error messages to the terminal from which you ran the program.
I'm using Ubuntu, and don't really know what is necessary to make this distribution agnostic, so if you are running a different
distribution, the file locations may need to be tweaked, and the server file may need to be edited to reflect that.
I have not done any cosmetic work on it yet so it is not very pretty. I thought it more important to get the functionality right
first. I have a long way to go before it does everything I want though.
