Using Winamp Skins in Audacious

I just tried using Audacious 3.4.3. It seems to be a nice audio player but the inability of the latest release to magnify the Winamp Skins made me loose interest in it. Anyway anybody interested in using it and looking for how to use Winamp Skins in it may read on:

To INSTALL Audacious in Ubuntu 14.04/14.10:

 sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8  
 sudo apt-get update  
 sudo apt-get install audacious audacious-plugins  

To Use Winamp Skins in Audacious:

In the Audacious Menu:
  • Click on View
  • Click on Interface
  • Select Winamp Classic Interface
Now your Audacious player should be displayed in a Winamp Skin as in the image below:

 To INSTALL New Winamp Skins:
 You can download Winamp skins from here:

Then copy it to the following location: '/usr/share/audacious/Skins'.

Support the following file formats (.zip, .wsz, .tgz, .tar.gz, or .tar.bz2 file.

Then  on your Audacious Menu once again:
  • Go to View
  • Interface Preferences
  • Select your Skin from the list
Instead of Audacious I found out Clementine Music Player to be AWESOME!!!
