Default XMMS skins
I have a package with over 600 XMMS skins that I got via the ARCH AUR and thought it would be nice to have for those of us here who use XMMS.
Is there a way to submit it and how would I go about it?
I do have some server space where it could be downloaded from or it can easily be gotten by anybody from the AUR.
Simple as heck to just untar the package and drop the folder into the XMMS folder in home replacing the already available skins folder.
No PBI needed.

Regards.

Is it in a fixed place on the Arch AUR server where it could be downloaded directly? Maybe someone could make a port/PBI for it?

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.p...earch=Go&PP=50 It's about 2/3 down the list and titled xmms-skins-huge. 680 skins.

Default XMMS skins
Ideally it would be easiest if we had a FreeBSD port which installed
these skins, then our PBI could just include it with xmms

I agree K. That would be the simplest solution for the beginning user.
Until that happens though, anyone can download the package, untar it with Ark and drop the untarred folder into their /home/xmms folder replacing the original skins folder.

Default XMMS skins
I wouldn't mind putting a port together for this, but I wonder if there is a better, system-wide location for the skins? It's been a while since I used XMMS, but don't they have a folder under /usr/something/ for skins?

Update: I've created a port for the skins package. You can track its progress here: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=157995

Skins used to be in /usr/local/xmms/skins.
The path now would be /usr/home/user name/xmms/skins.

No idea how one would compensate for needing the users name other than making an xmms module, place the skins in the skins folder and then making a pbi out of it, which the xmms users would want anyway.

The XMMS port still creates a directory called "/usr/local/share/xmms/Skins". The port I submitted just checks to make sure that location exists and copies the new skins into place.
