mythtv-setup does not add user to mythtv group in kde intrepid

Bug #274602 reported by Frank Bob on 2008-09-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
mythtv (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I'm running kubuntu intrepid

mythtv-setup should add the user to the mythtv group on first run but silently fails because kdesu was replaced by kdesudo in intrepid

frank@intrepid-test:~$ mythtv-setup
/usr/bin/mythtv-setup: 13: kdesu: not found
object not accessible
