run this application all you have to do is type xmms

creates a hidden directory in your account root folder.
For the superuser this would generally be /root/.xmms
For a normal user with a home directory /home/harry it
would mostly be /home/harry/.xmms
folder in turn would have a folder called Skins ( /root/.xmms/Skins
). Inside this folder you could copy all your Winamp skins
and all of them would work with XMMS.
Note : The skins have to be in .zip format. The
newer Winamp skins are available in .wsz format, rename
these to .zip before using them with XMMS.
best part about Linux is that most of the configuration
data for applications is stored in plain text format.
Even for XMMS all the configuration data is stored in
a file named config ( /root/.xmms/config ). This
file can be viewed using any text editor such as vi
or emacs or gnp. You can edit the values
directly in this file.
For example if you have a skin on some File System which
is already mounted and for some reason you cannot copy
that skin to the XMMS Skins folder, directly edit the
line in this configuration file which points to the Current
Skin being used and make it point it to the skin on the
other File System.
