new install of OSMC on Pi 3, everything works
ok but changing from the absolutely awful OSMC skin doesn’t work. I select Confluence, save… nothing happens. I select Estuary, save… settings saved… refresh, nothing
I change it via the guisettings.xml file, save, reboot… nothing
why am I constantly looking at ‘settings saved’ only to refresh the page and see SKIN=OSMC !!! its driving me mad
Is your issue that the skin reverts when you reboot? This is a known issue and will be fixed soon.
Otherwise you should provide some screenshots and a debug log, as your issue isn’t entirely clear.
Care to provide any constructive criticism?

the skin doesnt change at all, regardless of rebooting or not. when I select another skin. it says ‘settings saved’ or in the gui ‘are you sure you want to keep this setting’
then absolutely nothing changes.
in the web interface I can select another skin, save
settings saved refresh the page and its the same damn OSMC skin… nothing has changed at all!
i save, i reboot, im still on OSMC… no matter which way I try and change my skins, im stuck on OSMC all the time
In this case we need debug logs to identify the problem.
Does everything else work?

yeah mate everything else works fine, no issues at all. only with changing Skin settings. there are no permission errors either because I can manually set the xml file and aim it at any other skin… but it just doesnt do anything
here’s the log
Do those logs demonstrate the problem while debug logging was active? I cannot see a skin switch in there.

the only thing I can see is : 17:45:08.153 T:1751118832 WARNING: CSkinInfo: failed to load skin settings
for all intents and purposes, it tells me that the skin has changed on screen… it just doesnt do anything though and stays on OSMC
Maybe a stupid question, but did you select the “yes, keep” option when it asks you if you want to keep the new skin?
It might be a bit hard to see.

I’ve changed the Skin via the web browser, the xml file and the television through the settings menu in osmc itself, so yes of course I have selected yes on the popup
not a silly question I know sometimes simple things get overlooked, but i’ve done absolutely everything possible to try and change the theme (short of wiping the sd card and using something else)
Try to change it in Kodi directly. Mayve this is not supported in the webui right now.
Or do you want to change the skin of the webui?

I have changed it in Kodi, that is where you get ‘do you want to keep these settings > yes’ only to find it doesnt change anything

I have changed it every single possible way I know how and not one single method has any affect on the software because it remains stuck on the OSMC default skin regardless of what I select
As there is nothing obvious in the log, I would suggest a reinstall. Maybe some files are corrupted.
@sam_nazarko a better idea?
It’s working here for me on the latest version, nothing obvious from the debug log.
This is a warning, not an error… Also, not part of your problem because it’s present in most OSMC logs on any platform.

thats why I wrote ‘the only thing I can see’
there is nothing at all relating to skins other than that in the log
