Newbie wants to edit confluence home page
ok, I'm new to linux and new to xbmc but pretty competent most of the time. I'm a career IT Engineer for windows systems, XBMC is my way into learning about linux and how it works so be gentle.

Now, what i'm wanting is a way to add my youtube plugin (and eventually others) to my homepage in the default confluence skin.

only problem is at this moment i cant even find the confluence files let alone figure out how to edit them.

I'm sure everyone has a thousand more important things to be getting on and developing but if someone can give me a few pointers and links i'll be on my way,

current install is XBMC-Standalone on ubuntu 10.10 with gnome desktop.

I've found this and a few other bits and bobs about but need some pointers.
Just found this

but i dont have a ~/skin/

ok, found this

the instructions are to copy and paste the zip contents into the skin.confluence folder

this folder is found in /usr/share/xbmc/addons

it is owned by root and thus a quick

sudo chmod 777 -R /usr/share/xbmc/

was needed in order to allow me to paste into the folder

after that, start xbmc and goto settings>skins>Custom Home

you will need to make sure you have favorited the items you want to link to, find teh item and right click select favorite.
