I'm using "QtCurve" with own Color-settings tending to Mac-style. It's

This is a beautiful theme; I've run it on several installs of different distros, and on both KDE and Gnome. I always try out different themes and iconsets to try to get that perfect look for my system but always come back to this for XMMS and now Audacious.
Excellent work.

I have seen the screen shots and I think I could be hooked too.
Would you mind giving me a step by step 'HOW TO INSTALL'. If not could you tell me where I might find installation instructions?

Strange! Go into settings, select another "Output-plugin" and restart XMMS.
If it doesn't helps, install "audacious" - that's the same like xmms.
And -----
don't forget to install the VU-meter, it's magic !!!

Hello Brian

To install the Vumeter-plugin You need more rights as a normal user has.
On Ubuntu You can install it with following commands:
./configure
make
sudo make install
A detailed instruction You can find under:

Thx for Your interest

All the installed programs. Gets automatically in your home directory. /home/<your user name>/

In this case for XMMS it gets installed in /home/username/.xmms (hidden directory)

Go to Nautilus/filebrowser. And press CTRL + H to view the hidden dirs. And do it again to hide them again.

Every thing of XMMS goes: plugins in the "Plugins" dir and skins in the "Skins" dir

One of the name of the skin directory in VU_meter_skins must be "default" :)

VU_Meter_skins/default

It's difficult to find out, what goes wrong in Your case. It' seems that the Plugin
finds no Skins. Check whether You have made the directory:
" /home/~/.xmms/VU_Meter_skins/ "
and copy the VUmeter-Skins of the Plugin into that directory.
Check if the directory and the Files are readable for all users.

When the problem exists further, I suggest to check whether You
have installed the actual XMMS-Player (1.2.10) or the actual VUmeter-Plugin (0.9.2)
Go again step by step through my Installation-guidance for the plugin on
(http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=49127) and have also a look
on other sides with explanations how to install the plugin:
