The "none" skin which XMMS displays by default is virtually unusable
for me, and I have reasonably good eyesight.
I'm sure it's very "cool" to emulate a low-contrast blue LED on black
plastic in an obscure lounge, but for those of us who just want to see
the name of the song we're listening to occasionally, and not be
particularly cool, it would be very useful indeed to include a
different skin, perhaps as an alternative, in the base package.
I'm aware of xmms-skins and am personally using a skin from that
add-on package, but I wouldn't bet a naive user would even understand
the meaning of "skin", and if you don't have any alternative skins
installed, they're not going to find out by playing around.
Only two of the alternatives in xmms-skins have a reasonable contrast
(specifically, Helix-Sawfish and minEguE) and it could be better still
-- a trivial black on white skin should be fairly simple to hack up
and not take a lot of room in the package.
I guess technical constraints prevent skins from using proper case
instead of HIDEOUS UPPER CASE in the song title when XMMS is minimized
so I won't bother to issue a separate bug report about that ...
Thanks for considering this,
/* era */
