    Is there a tutorial to develop skins for OpenVIX firmware?
    I have VU+ DUO 4K with OpenVIX v6.2 firmware.

    I would like to learn how to develop a skin.

    I doubt there is any comprehensive guide for any image.

    Just get stuck in and ask questions as you go along.

    Most important thing is to create a template and use it in every screen to keep things uniform, not create a whole new skin for each and every screen.

    Yes, Notepad++ or any other decent text editor.

    There is OpenSkin Designer but you will have to Google for it.

    KiddaC uses different xml files for each section of his skins instead of everything being in skin.xml.

    I found the easiest way was to keep a skin_usr.xml in /etc/enigma2/ to make any changes to them.

    I really recommend you use a basic text editor. You don't want something between you and the code you are trying to work on.

    I just use Notepad++ and assign a button to reload the skin quickly.
