Edit XMMS skin


The title says all. I want to edit an xmms skin because the song titles are in bold face and I can't read them.

If the "Skin package" includes a text file by name
'PLEDIT.TXT' or 'pledit.txt', it could possibly be
edited.

Find the Skin package in /usr/share/xmms/Skins/ or
/home/<username>/.xmms/Skins/ ( hidden file ).

Unpack the 'tar.gz' package, edit the text file, or
replace it with a 'pledit.txt' file from another
package, repack it to 'tar.gz' and try using it.

Good luck !

xmms playlist font.

If you go to:
//home/username/.xmms/config

You have the option of changing the playlist_font
font, and the mainwin_font

##start copy and paste from my xmms config file.

playlist_font=-adobe-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-10-*

mainwin_font=-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-8-*

I have not tried this before, I imagine you can
change quite a few font specific settings from
here.

If you have to you should even be able to install
extra fonts, register them here to use them.

good luck!
