Unhappy Xmms Skins directory (cant find it)


Hellou.

I cant believe that i have managed to install Slackware 9.1, compile my kernel so that everything is working, but i can't find xmms Skins directory (the one that skin browser uses)

I have read a million threads that say bla bla bla ...put the skin in you /.xmms/Skins direcotory....

or create one in /usr/share/xmms .... well, tried that but skin browser in xmms stil doesnt find anything.

Xmms is working just fine so i can listen to mp3's, but the ugly skin really bothers me.
I am using latest xmms player and it was installed properly (it must have been, else it shouldn't work wright? )

Well if someone can help me or has had a similar problem plz let me know how you solved it or it least what should i try.

Linux p0wah !

In your .xmm directory there is a file called "config". You can try adding a line:

skin=<path to skin file>

If I use a skin that's the line I have. If not, it's absent.

The .xmm directory should be in your /home/<username> directory. If your using kde, open konqueror and navigate to your home directory. Under the "View" menu, tick the "Show Hidden Files" menu item. The "." in front of a file name indicates it's a hidden directory. The name of the file is "config"; it sets all your configuration options for xmms like random play and repeat modes, etc. If you look at it it's pretty self explanatory, if you can find it that is. The thing has to be somewhere because that's how your configuration changes in xmms are recorded.

Omg once again this problem happened beacause of my stupidity!

It was easier with win XP cause for every failure or error you would just blame the frikin $M$.

But not in Linux, cause maybe after a weak you realize that it is always your mistake.

In my case .... lol, i forgot to check show hidden file and folders in my file browser, and that was it.


THANX AGAIN to all who were trying to help.

Sometimes it's a good idea to work in the terminal and type ls -a. Also, you can always type the name of the hidden folder/file in the address thing at the top, depending on what filer you use.

It's a simple command. Just move the skin to the Skins folder.

mv <nameofskin> /home/yourusername/.xmms/Skins
