How to change OSMC Logo?

#1

Hello,

I want to customize the OSMC Logo in the upper left corner to make it a little bit bigger. Where is the png located on local storage?

You’ll find it in the Home.xml file in line 75. The file is located here: /usr/share/kodi/addons/skin.osmc/16x9.

But be aware that the changes you’ll be making will be overwritten with every update.

I will reply to this, @Toast, as his question for the png itself is not answered by my post :wink:

The png itself is to be found in the Textures.xbt file in the same location, just not in the ~/16x9 folder, but the ~/media folder. So, you can’t really access it without using the Kodi texture tool (https://kodi.wiki/view/TextureTool).
To make the logo bigger, it should be enough to edit the width and hight dimensions of the image control that I pointed you to, @klwn. :slightly_smiling_face:

thanks @Chillbo :slight_smile: I would like to change the squared logo to the “OSMC” text logo. So I will will take a look at the texture tool to extract/replace the logo.

Edit: looks like the tool is Windows only, so I guess I have to come up with a different solution. Isn’t it possible to re-locate the texture file somewhat like this…

	<!-- Logo -->
	<control type="image">
		<left>115</left>
		<top>85</top>
		<width>50</width>
		<height>100</height>
		<texture>logo/newLogo.png</texture>
		<include>WindowFadeAnimation</include>
	</control>

Question is, what is the default path OSMC is using for asset storage? So in my case, where does the folder “logo” has to be stored?

Here:

The Textures.xbt basically just replaces all the content of the media folder in a compressed fashion.

I’d recommend, you read up on skinning questions in the respective Kodi wiki: https://kodi.wiki/view/Skinning
All the questions you have should be answered there.

Still: all the changes you’re making in the skin.osmc folder will be replaced with a next update. :wink:

okay thanks. Yes, I have made a update package incase the next update goes live, so I can easily replace the files I have changed.

works perfect :slight_smile: thanks again for the help!

One comment: It’s at the same place as the date, if you enable it. And does it work with the now playing notification? :wink:

Chillbo it acutally looks better with no logo there might be something worth thinking about :slight_smile:

Removing our logo would first and foremost be something for @sam_nazarko to decide. But, tbh, I don’t agree, @Toast :wink:

it looks less cluttered that all that im saying and ofc its up to sam but from an esthetic standpoint it looks way better
