Maybe i can get some help off of warheros question. I save the skin to home. Then i
mv KalaK_Amp.wsz /usr/share/xmms/Share. That's all i have to do right? I then go to options--> skin browser...but it shows no skins? Am i doing something wrong here?

check the permissions. i've got my skins permissions in /usr/share/xmms/skins set to:

755

so if the permissions don't allow at least exec permissions, use this command as root in the shell:

chmod 755 /usr/share/xmms/Skins/*

and that last folder directory should be named Skins.

Are you saving them as .zip? When I download a skin from www.winamp.com, I use mouse right buttom >> save as and then I change the name to whatever.zip. Otherwise it won't work

Also note:
/usr/share/xmms/Share

Is the wrong path. The right path would be <whatever xmms is>/Skins. Alternatively, you could save all your skins at your home directory. This is the alternative path:

/home/user/.xmms/Skins
