    My Simple_Ten_Eighty skin modification

    Inspired by requests from my wife who didn't like the epg layout or the channel zap. I've made the picons larger (and included the 400x240 size picons I use for 28.2E). I moved the date and time to the right side.

    I know I should use a user skin file, but I couldn't seem to get it to work. Just replace the existing Simple_Ten_Eighty files with these and restart the GUI.

    Hope some of you find it useful and fun.

    Simple_Ten_Eighty.zip

    1_0_1_621C_7E6_2_11A0000_0_0_0_20220527114150.jpg 1_0_1_621C_7E6_2_11A0000_0_0_0_20220527114201.jpg 1_0_19_1B31_802_2_11A0000_0_0_0_20220527114109.jpg 1_0_19_1B31_802_2_11A0000_0_0_0_20220527114129.jpg 1_0_1_621C_7E6_2_11A0000_0_0_0_20220527120312.jpg

    PLEASE NOTE: The Simply_Ten_Eighty skin used images for the epg from the "skin_default/epg" folder. You need to replace those as well. They are included in the zip file.

    No, no, no... put them in...

    Code:
    /etc/enigma2/Simple_Ten_Eighty/epg
    That way they get backed up and not overwritten on a software update.

    And no idea why you can't get a user skin to work. What is the problem?

    It just doesn't seem to recognise it. I named it skin_user_Simple_Ten_Eighty. I'll try again (if I can find all the changes I made)

    I just tried this file but it isn't making the changes like if I edit the skin and skin template files. Any idea why that is?

    It looks like your missing the skin parts at the top and bottom of the file

    <skin> at the top
    </skin> at the bottom


    <skin>
    My modified skin code
    </skin>

    Still no joy. Could it be because the code I changed is from the skin_templates.xml and not the skin.xml ?

    I haven't checked it on my box so there could be other issues. One I've noticed is <screen name="NumberZapPicon" section hasn't had </screen> at the end of that section

    I'll add it and see what it does. I did see that bit of code and noticed I never saw the picon.

    This is what I altered: skin_user_Simple_Ten_Eighty.xml
