Skins allow you to change the look of your Communicator screen. You can customize colors and backgrounds of all screen elements including the status are, title and CBA-area. In the internet you can already find a lot of skins, but the installation of these skins can cause lots of problems, since they need to be installed exactly right. If you make a single mistake, the Communicator will not show the skin or even refuse to start up. SkinInstall helps you to prevent this and allows you to install a custom skin the correct way with a minimal amount of effort.
This program requires S80Utils OPX
to be installed in your Communicator.
Install a skin:
- Unzip the desired skins to your PC and copy the skin to your Communicator in the folder C:\MEINE_SKINS. Each skin must be copied into it's own folder below C:\MEINE_SKINS, e.g. C:\MEINE_SKINS\KARIBIK, C:\MEINE_SKINS\BLISS etc.
- Start SkinInstall and press "1". SkinInstall will now read all folder names in C:\MEINE_SKINS and present a list of the skins found.
- Select the desired skin from the list and press "Install". This will install the skin. To activate the skin, the Communicator needs to be rebooted, so select "Yes" when you see the message asking you to reboot your Communicator (make sure you save any changes you have made in other applications before rebooting).
Uninstall the skin:
If you want to revert to your old skin, start SkinInstall and press "2". The installed skin will now be removed. To reactivate your old skin, the Communicator must be rebooted again.
