Folks
Where can I get a copy of XBMC skin for my Nokia N800 tablet? I understand there is a PDA version of the skin suitable for my need. Cant seem to find any

THanks

I would like to bump this request for a skin for the Nokia N800. The default web interface works, but the buttons are way too small. I would like a skin that has nice big buttons (touchscreen on N800) and larger font. I am open to modifying the original if someone could tell what file to start with.

Thanks,

J

So I took a stab at it last night and got something working pretty well. All I did was modify the .css file that's in there, so I didn't change any functionality, but I did have to remove some items to get the bigger buttons on there. I removed the XBMC logo, the VIDEO PLAYLIST button, the VOLUME slider, and some of the other buttons at the bottom next to the POWER and RESET buttons. I also increased the size of the font significantly so it's easier to select with your finger.
I wanted to post what I have so other people can work on it and help with problems. I haven't messed with the play/pause/stop/ff/fr buttons, but will work on making bigger versions of those tonight or later this week.
I did run into a problem with DVD or CD titles that are extra long. They don't play nice on the screen. I've attached screen shots and a link to the zip file that you just drop in your web folder in E:/apps/xbmc/.
Here's the link to the file: http://www.mediafire.com/?r91hnemgenz

Updated the backgrounds, got the extra large buttons to work. I don't think I'm going to do a volume on these pages but I think I'll try to add a mute button in that empty space under MusicPlaylist. Tomorrow I'm gonna re-work the power and reset buttons. Still haven't figured out what's going on with my text. Let me know what you think.

Here's a link to the new files: http://www.mediafire.com/?vmyjzcf0bcj
