XMMS Skins Folder?


Where should the skin files for XMMS be stored to show up in the XMMS Skin Browser? I can't seem to find a place to tell XMMS where to look so I am assuming it expects the skins to be somewhere.

/home/<username>/.xmms/skins (for local skins)

global skins
# whereis xmms/skins
(it would prob be somewhere in /usr/share/xmms/)
