Can you please give me a list of the skins that works fine with merge version of xbmc ?

That should be installed in addons folder ?

So far, the ones that work by default - no need for users to do anything:

Confluence
PM3D
Mediastream Redux
Transparency! - from SVN
Night
Backrow
reFocus

The rest follow this, using Alaska as an example:

Change the name to skin.alaska

This is Confluence's addon.xml, there is more to it but these bolded lines is what you need to change:
Quote:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<addon
id="skin.confluence"
version="1.1.0"
name="Confluence"
provider-name="Jezz_X, Team XBMC">

Change to:
Quote:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<addon
id="skin.alaska"
version="1.1.0"
name="alaska"
provider-name="Jezz_X, Team XBMC">

then put that addon.xml in the top of the skin folder and you're good to go...If you did this with XBMC running you might have to close and restart

This is exactly the kind of list that will be going away in the near future thanks to the new addons system. As we get closer to alpha1 (or maybe directly after), we'll be working with skinners to get working skins into the xbmc.org repository. Thus, if it's there, it works Wink

just adding a addon.xml file doesn't make the skin compatible with recent svn builds.

imho of course ;-)


edit:
might as well add a link on how to make a skin compatible:

Alaska Final isn't compatible per se, but is usable with the addition of handmade addon.xml file.

Hi theuni !

May I can consider the XML structure of the new addon system (skins, scripts, reposiory, ...) as closed? No modifications for the 10.05 final version?
