re-touched skin, need help to change it back to the default skin
#1
I accidentally downloaded re-touched skin on my apple TV v2 and I didn't know you needed a mouse or a touch screen. Now it’s hard to navigate with the apple TV remote. On the XBMC main menu I cannot press the settings button so I can’t change it back to the default skin. What should I do?

Try deleting your guisettings.xml (wiki) file in your userdata (wiki) directory and then restarting XBMC.

deleting the skin.re-touched folder from addons folder also works

See this SSH (wiki) wiki article. Although it refers to XBMCbuntu, the concept is the same for connecting to a system via SSH and issuing commands to it.

Hi there I am having problems switching this skin back to default too. On Aeon Nox I disabled mouse support and was unaware that if I change over that the settings would carry over; it did. So now I can't navigate with the arrow keys nor my mouse. I have tried going into the XBMC folder but alas there is no guisettings.xml nor skin folder. If anyone can help me out I would appreaciate it.

I tried to change skin to simplicity and now I can't access anything in the XBMC. It kicks me out every time I go into settings. How do I change it back? I am new at this so don't assume that I have any Idea what I am doing.

As Aartrafael said above, delete the 'guisettings.xml' file in your 'userdata' folder. For its location see:

Well, it's very difficult to get there if you don't have SSH connection (because it's turned off for example) and keyboard and mouse are not working........Sad
I've exactly the same problem now.
I really don't get it, why al the other forms of navigation are disabled.....
