To install a Player-Skin put the downloaded "*******.wsz" - File in the directory:
/home/~/.xmms/Skins ---- XMMS can read "*.wsz" - Files.
If You have downloaded a Tar-archive extract it to the same directory
( Actual version of the XMMS-Player is 1.2.10, needs only 2% CPU-Time )

Installation of the VU-meterplugin:

If there is no RPM-Package for Your Distribution available
You have to install from sources, don`t be afraid, it's easy !

1. Download and untar the Source-File from "Sourceforge" (http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=56771&package_id=52133)
2. Check whether You have installed the GCC Compiler on Your system and update
the XMMS-Player if necessary. Install the "XMMS-Devel Package" !!!
3. Open a console and become root, go into the untared directory of the vumeterplugin.
4. Run following 3 commands one after the other:
./configure or configure
make
make install
When You get an error-message, look at "google" to solve the problem !!!
5. The plugin is now installed. Next You have to make a new directory called VU_Meter_skins in Your local XMMS-directory (/home/~/.xmms/). Move
the "default" and the other Skins from the untared Plugin to the new directory.
Start XMMS and activate the VUmeter-plugin. Ready!
When it doesn't starts, then first have a look on the rights of the new files.

A detailed installation guidance for the plugin and the Skins You can
find under: (http://www.vivaolinux.com.br/dicas/verDica.php?codigo=7789)
or: (http://www.jellykernel.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=112&Itemid=25)


Configuration

You can configure the plugin by clicking the button leftside top. I prefer
the settings You can see in the 2 windows of the screenshot.
There is also a config-file in each Skin-directory, there You can set
items as for example the color of the needles and more, more, more...

The VUmeter-Skins need a new Konfiguration-File for the new VUmeter-Plugin 1.0.0 to work properly!!
I've made some new Skins for Download.

I just download analog-vu-meter-plugin-1.0.0-beta.tar.gz and get a error
while configuring,

checking for AUDACIOUS... no
configure: error: *** Audacious >= 1.5.0 not installed - please install
first ***

however, I have Audacious 2.2-1 installed, so I just wonder if
analog-vu-meter-plugin-1.0.0-beta is available for Audacious 2.x or not?

You need to install the package
"audacious-devel", when You compile
the plugin from sources!

The Skin`s are for the "Analog VUmeter-plugin" of XMMS.
You must differentiate between Player-Skin and VUmeter-Skin.
To use other Player-Skins, put them into the skin directory of XMMS.
To use VUmeter-Skins You have first to install or to compile the
"Analog VUmeter-plugin" and to extract the VUmeter-Skins in the VU_Meter_skins directory.

Try first some Player-Skins and activate them with ALT-S in XMMS. When You like the
XMMS-Player and You want to have the additonal VUmeter-plugin, compile it.
Go step by step through my Installation-guidance for the plugin and have also a look
on other sides with explanations how to install the plugin:
