XMMS and winamp themes


I have tried to use winamp themes with XMMS as all the howtos say, by renaming it to *.zip and putting it in the correct directory. But when i select the winamp theme in XMMS it remains on the default theme. All the XMMS themes work exept for the winamp ones.

Any Help appreciated.

What about the SKINS_DIRECTORY(check it out) variable.
Try reading /usr/share/doc/xmms-blah/readme.

yeah, .wsz and .zip files work just fine - just put them in your (hidden) /home/user/.xmms/Skins directory

.sz files didn't work btw
