Artist's Note

Foobar miniplayer layout.

0.5.0 (06-20-2007)

* removed elfin2-based titlebar and borders, use windows visual style is now default
* repositioned options button to the bottom of the miniplayer "transparent border"
* buttons on the sides of the transparent border to pop up a new full mode view
* full mode view features:
o all panels visible from one view
o all panels collapsible by "transparent border" buttons, popup can be pared down to just the SCPL view
o can be used in tandem with miniplayer or maximized for full screen view
* addition of vis_egoh and peakmeter to full mode
* simpler singles mode view
* unlimited backgrounds can be chosen from the options
* rating color tweaks

This is a minimalist panels_ui layout designed to work with any visual style. It can be set to no titlebar mode with a default window border (based on the excellent Elfin2 VS, not required to download), or set to use the visual style being used. This is an as-is layout, I won't be taking any feature requests but I'll still try to help people who have problems setting it up. If you want to change something or add or remove panels, you're on your own.

See the very comprehensive readme included for installation instructions and usage.

Awesome skin! I have some problems with it though, I don't know how to get the "BROWSE"-panel working (nothing shows up there). Also the titlebar gets cut off right where the minimize-button are.

You need a new version of panels UI, kraff. Clear your cache and use the download link in the readme :)

Fri, Jun 8th at 12:40pm (10 years ago)

Nice job!
But I just can't find where did your predefine(preset) the varials(such like grey1, grey2, grey5,color1,color2)
and in my Xp sp2, the Toolbar1 [Track Display] just black out except play back buttoms and Menu.
Buttom ART Playlist BROWSE LYRIC still functionable, but can't see the text.
and my Panel_ui version is 13.6

this might be a problem with having one of the more freely distributed calibri fonts installed instead of the one actually packaged by microsoft. Try downloading the office compatibility pack linked in the readme and delete any calibri fonts found in c:\windows\fonts before installing it.

jclim00 says:

Oh, the variables are defined under the globals button on the bottom of the panels_ui config (right click anywhere in the layout that doesn't have a panel placed on it)

TheBashar says:

Any idea what I've done wrong? The art, playlist, browse, lyrics, rate and menu do not show up. Also in Elegenace Options, some words show up and some don't. I've installed all the fonts mentioned. Any ideas? Thanks!

I love this skin. I've virtually stopped using Winamp now...I know next to nothing about skinning (and new to foobar too), so I'm going to sound stupid explaining it like this... but I didn't have this problem in 041, I do in 050, and I don't think I changed any additional settings. I see the windows bounding box around the player, with the minimize, restore and X buttons up on top. Can you tell me how to remove that? Thank you very much, and hope to see great new skins from you in the future.

alright, i'm officially an idiot :\
"removed elfin2-based titlebar and borders, use windows visual style is now default"
feel free to punch me :P

I love this skin. Thanks for creating this true work of art.

kaworito says:

I'm totally new to foobar. And I just can't seem to get this to work. I think I have the miniplayer working but I don't see the control buttons, I can'tchange the layout to the full set, I don't see many album arts I know I have... :S
I don't know, I followed every single instruction from the install guide... please help? Thanks a lot...

I've got most of it to work, but I don't know how to make the scroll bar look like the one above. It's using the default windows one, like this:

Does anyone know how to fix this?

How can I change the border color around the config?

chibichoo says:

Awesome config, though, sometimes when I start foobar the play controls are missing and I have to restart it a couple of times to get them back.

Any way to fix this?

Complete link for downloading foo_uie_vis_egoh.dll:
foo_dsp_crossfader.dll seems doesn't work for me, somebody can fix it?
"Failed to load DLL: foo_dsp_crossfader.dll
Reason: This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. "
I have reinstall but, it just the same.

everything's working great for me, but i'm just wondering if it's possible to hide the title bar? or at least have artist name - song title show up. right now it just says "elegance." any help would be appreciated!

dandv says:

Why isn't there an "I hate it" option in customize.org?

This skin may look nice & all, but its usability is CRAP. You can't seek, for crying out loud!

Noobsie says:

I like this skin very much and i would like to congratulate the developer...

Only a little problem that i would like to know if anyone else has came across with - my active playlists appear on the right bottom corner os the full skin mode. But the background is white, is it does not look very nice like that.

is there any possible way i could fix this little bug (or maybe user inexperience :P?)

Noobsie says:

How can I get the playlist to show the album art ? My playlist shows an empty line between each entry, is it possible to correct this? How can i get my playlist information to look like the one in the pic on the top os this page?

cereeal says:

Is there any way to make the browse window have a point(like clicking on a song or artist will bring you there in the playlist window).
If not, is there a point to it?

Sun, Oct 21st at 04:11pm (10 years ago)

excellent skin...

It looks like the development for this skin is dead?

I'm just wondering can the author modify something so that whenever I double click a track on the layout filter (full screen right column -> library filter), the song will play instead of doing nothing? I need to add those albums to my playlist in order to play.
