midnight commander pre-loaded skins???


Just happened to notice the presence of what looks like some pre-loaded midnight commander skins in my ~/usr/share/mc/skins directory. How do I make mc use one of these? Didn't see anything in the config files or in the settings regarding this.

I found this: http://blog.mybox.ro/2010/05/10/skin...ght-commander/

I haven't tested it, but I plan to!

Thanks for letting me that there are such things as skins for MC.

Thanks for the help. The default skin is too blue for my taste.
I live in Louisville, KY and I'm a Cardinal fan, if you know what I mean.

Good luck. Let us know if it works--I may not get to trying it out for several days.

I lived in the Greater Philadelphia Co-Prosperity Sphere for 25 years and ended up a Phillies fan. If you know what I mean .
