TvHeadEnd on newer versions of Ubuntu (or its flavours)

Added by Boiler Plate about 2 months ago

Hello.

I have an HTPC running Kubuntu 21.04 on which I would like to install TvHeadEnd (TVH) to. How would you recommend me to install TVH to this computer?

I tried the TVH Snap package but I was unable to make it detect my TV tuner. Also, to my understanding TVH runs under root when using the Snap version, which I find a bit dangerous. Seems like TVH isn't supported by newest versions of Ubuntu or it's flavours.

Why do you think it's not supported? What happens when you try to compile it?

Well, I tried compiling and building TVH from source a moment ago and got some compilation error. I don't remember what kind of error, exactly, anymore. I'd much rather install it through apt or via some other more automated method.

I have running TVH 4.2.8 with ubuntu 20.04, no snap. It runs as a service under the user "hts", not root.

How did you install it?

sudo apt install tvheadend

So, apparently 20.04 has a version in the Apt repository but 21.04 does not. I uninstalled Kubuntu 21.04 and replaced it with Kubuntu 20.04. I managed to install TvHeadEnd now. Case closed.
