Hi,

I am not clear about how Hadesigner effects the skin of the core.
I have not been able to do that.
I changed the skin in HAdesigner which saves it in my sql but how the core gets the replaced image ofcource with the same name.

I was changing the exixting mnmenu i.e. design ID# 1255.
I added one skin too but again adding style was giving error on create.

what is the relation between Hadesigner + Style + skin + design ID and the CORE.

thanks

The Style menus in Designer are broken. You must modify the database manually, changing the Style, and StyleVariation tables as necessary.

yept..
downloaded foobar 2000
and geting your .oog files...

well also do let me know in the mean while that how far the folder
"root/user/pluto/orbiter/skins/Basic" is important I renamed and even removed it but it still
gets the Basic Orbiter Design ID #20. I don't know how it gets the images.
I reg all the orbiters also from pluto admin but it still gets the old BAsic images.

I know default is Basic.

Thanks

Hi Linux_da,

the Basic skin folder is very important, as it is the fallback folder for all skins. If OrbiterGen can not find a graphic file for a skin, it tries to get it from Basic. I recommend watching _all_ screencast from tschak, as it is essential to understand the logic behind HA Designer and OrbiterGen. There are a lot of pitfalls in designing skins for LinuxMCE, watching the screencast avoids the most.
