Where does mandrake keep all the program files
Sorry about this question and how newbieish it is but i need to know so i can find the directory for skins of XMMS so i can put some of my winamp skins in there.
Thanx for the feedback :)

do a whereis for xmms

/home/manasb> whereis xmms
xmms: /usr/X11R6/bin/xmms /usr/bin/X11/xmms /usr/X11/bin/xmms /usr/share/xmms /usr/X11/man/man1/xmms.1.gz

The skins should be in /usr/share/xmms/Skins or /usr/local/share/xmms/Skins.

That was very helpful man
also had a look on the man pages cos there was no Sknins folder in the share/xmms folder so i created it myself and put my skins in there and they work. :)

From man xmms


XMMS supports WinAmp style skins. Skins may be stored in either archived (.zip, .wsz, .tgz, .tar.gz, or .tar.bz2) or unarchived format. XMMS looks for skinfiles in ${prefix}/share/xmms/Skins, ~/.xmms/Skins, and locations specified by the SKINSDIR variable.
So you can either drop them in a suitable subdirectory in your home, or figure out the prefix used to install it. Probably /usr, possibly /usr/local

The "rpm" command can give you a listing of all the files installed by a package, I can't remember the syntax, its been over a year since I last used rpm.
