http://askubuntu.com – I installed XBMC and it's working beautifully. I have my own skin I'd like to use and all I should have to do is copy and past my skin.folder into the addons folder and I'm down. However, this isn't so easy with Ubuntu. I have the latest version, installed today 11-14-2012 Could someone please spell out the command process to make this happen? I've read through so many forums, tried ssh, I know now I'm getting into things that could be dangerous so any help would be much appreciated. Structure. /home/cantrellsmedia/Downloads/skin.cantrell <----- Need copied /usr/share/xbmc/addons (HowTos)
