Note: All skins had the mytheme.phm file for each applicable skin in their own folder. I did not change the names.
2. I went to Settings > Themes > and selected Ubuntu theme (which, by default applies the real ubuntu skin)
3. Then, whenever I wanted to change the skin, I simply added a number to the first ubuntu folder, so as to prevent the phone from loading files from that folder), removed the 1 or 2 from one of the other ubuntu folder names on the card and restarted the phone.
The new skin is then applied.
4. When I want to change it again, I rename the now used ubuntu folder back to ubuntu1 or 2 or 3 and remove the number from one of the other folders and restart phone again.
This way I don't edit any files used for the actual themes and I don't go to Themes to change any skins.
I this method has been said somewhere before, I'm sorry. I don't read things through properly.
Okay its mainly the method i described with multiple mytheme.phm.
But the way of copying the skin with the phone internal functions is much better.
As far as i know (maybe i just got it wrong) the mp searches the card for the mytheme.phm. Your method would have no effect on my phone, cause there is no pre installed skin named Ubuntu... And with my method there is no need of using the file manager. I can just select the other theme in my phone menue.
Okay i try to explain the steps in other words.
I'll write down an example with the USL skin.
1.) Copy the skinfolder to your card.
Example: Copy the folder USL to your card in mytheme/USL. Make sure you got all the files, but the mytheme.phm.
2.) Check the mytheme.phm (with an simple editor) if the path is set correctly.
Example: Skin = /mmc/mmca1/mytheme/USL
3.) Copy the mytheme.phm to your card into the mytheme folder.
Example: hmm just move it to mytheme/mytheme.phm.
4.) Unplug your phone
5.) Press 'Main Menu'
6.) Go to 'Settings' and enter
7.) Go into 'Themes'
8.) Select the just copied
Example: Ubuntu Studio L(whatever,i forgot)
10.) Press 'Create a Copy'
11.) Name your Copy
Example: Ubuntu Studio
12.) You will see the skin twice
13.) Plug in your phone
14.) Rename mytheme.phm to mytheme.xxx.phm
Example: Rename mytheme.phm to mytheme.usl.phm
*Leave the skin folder as it is!! dont toutch it!*
15.) Unplug your phone.
16.) Go to themes and you will see just one copy of the skin. the one static on the phone.
17.) Now you can plug in your phone and put an other skin on the card. Use a new folder inside the mytheme folder for every skin. And just do the steps starting from 1 again.
I got 3 new skins on my phone now. Two are static on the phone ( Ubuntu Studio and Quick Look) and one is dynamic from the mytheme.phm in the mytheme folder (Myclover (ugly))
Good luck to you guys!
Oh p.s. if this helps more, please tell me, so i'll update the first post.
