Customize Skins?
« on: August 08, 2017, 12:18:33 pm »
Good Morning All.....

I use the Aeon Nox skin, with the picture of Astronaut floating in space. Is there a way to change the background image? Or there other user friendly skins for 17.3?

System/skin settings you can change many backgrounds in there, the main background, a different background for each menu item, multiple backgrounds, backgrounds for sub menu items...

Edit: I'm actually talking about aeon nox silvo, should be similar in regular aeon nox

I think it's settings/skin settings/main menu settings
Highlight a menu item on the left side and on the right side are options including setting a background.
The key is you need to find your kodi/userdata folder and make a new folder there called backgrounds or something similar. Then from within kodi/system/file manager you need to add source and browse to the new folder location. Store all of your custom images in there, if you want multiple images for a menu item, like a slide show, just make a subfolder inside your background folder.
Have fun

I was looking for it, wasn't listed when I went to search for more skins....had Aeon Leggo and Aeon Star Wars or something like that. How can I find SILVO?

And when you go there, if you use the Kodi Forums....DO NOT mention any of the addons you are getting here as talking about them there is banned!

Lol, some of those guys are not friendly even if you post a log showing all legal addons, I've done it before. Some of the 'team' are cool and some are just condescending

Well you can't blame them at all. Kodi is taking a lot of heat because of 3rd party addons and they shouldn't have to. Then you add the users who think they are "entitled" or are just plain uninformed but think they know it all and you have a real bruhaha.

Xonfluence (Confluence mod) skin best. The only one that uses Artist Slideshow correctly.
