If you can't see any images in the menu or somewhere else then its usually a permission problem. First go to the theme directory, which is usually cd /usr/share/mythtv/themes. Then set the correct permissions for the directory with the command find blue-abstract-wide -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \; and for the images with the command find blue-abstract-wide -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;.
