hiSmile

i've been running xbmc uisng the showmix skin, on an asrock 330 using flashfxp's script for around 3-4 months now.

today i did a full clean install of the latest stable xbmc, dircetly to the hardrive.

i've got it all up and running, but i'm having trouble with transfering files over to the asrock.

i'm using winscp and its all working as it should, i'e i can see all the files on the asrock etc, just when i come to try n transfer the showmix skin ive downloaded it throws and error and refuses to copy over??

i can transfer files from the asrock to my pc, but not the other way.

any ideas guys??

Looks like you need to setup permissions for the ftp. I dunno what the full-blown xbmc Linux distro uses though.

Why are you transferring to that directory?

If you are uploading skins, send them in to your /home/user/.xbmc/skin directory.

There is no reason that you need to upload to /usr/share.

i'm a noob:confused2: and i'd read on another thread that'd come up in google, that that was the path to access the skin folder for xbmc live.

now working using the path you've quotedSmile

many thanks for your time guys.
