Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

[skin] file ( /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/default/skin ) not found.
Skin not found ( default ).
I downloaded a skin. /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/ is what I have. I tried creating a folder default/skin and putting it there bu no go.
You did the right thing by downloading the skin, but you need to name the skin folder default, eg: if you downloaded the default Blue skin, name the Blue folder default and put it in the /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/ folder. Then it will load the skin file from there.
Are you making a directory called "skin"? this would be incorrect. What you should have is a directory called "default" and put your skin files in that. Or change the name of the skin listed in your config file.
Ok that worked and now I can put other skins in there and they can load it. I know have to work on getting fonts and codecs. TThank you. If any have recommendations on the easiest to install will take them. Thanks again
