Spartan - Skin for Mixxx 1.10 & 1.9

Sometimes you dont need a full featured, button loaded skin.
Sometimes it is enough to have a big library and big track informations/waveforms while working with just the turntables or a midi controller, never touching any button on the screen at all.

Based on the Shade skin i have made a simple proposal for this special purpose.

Before posting it i would like to hear your ideas guys - is there is something missing or needs to be improved , things you would like to see in there...

Also it would be interesting to know what screen resolution you would prefer (use poll please).

Features so far:
* Works with all major OS` in fullscreen mode
* Big font size for library & track information
* Big Waveform with Cue & Hotcue informations
* Volume/Peak meter for Channels & Master
* Of corse all Keyboard shortcuts & Midi mappings keep working

Your screenshot is very nice but in my opinion the VuMeters should be bigger.
About the resolution i think that the ideal is the common resolution of the notebooks, because usually the DJs use the notebook for performing live.

Compliments for the idea, should be very useful ;)

I think it needs a "Panic" button look-alike just in case the controller broke down. It may be a general stop button or the like. Dunno what you think.. :?

We could have one that re-activates the controllers which should recover them if they're using scripts. (And could eventually even recover from accidental unplugs.)

I second the larger VU meters. How about this? Extend the deck boxes a bit and have vertical pre-fader VUs the height of the deck boxes, then make the master ones horizontal in the existing space.

Agree , bigger VUmeters makes sense - if somewhat far away from keyboard you can`t see them now.

A Panic Button... Why not use keyboard shortcuts then?

Been a while since the last post but finally the skin is here for you to try it out.
It has evolved pretty much but it is still a beta version so there might be errors.
Tested mostly with MacOS but should look the same with the other OS`s.
If you find an error - tell me. Format is 1280x800-WXGA until.

With Mixxx 1.9 we got the support for external mixers and this is what the skin should be good for.

Your feedback is much appreciated.

Well, This is very nice. However, I tried to change the size of the library in order to fix this, I couldn't change it:

It doesn't look correctly on 1366x768 screen size, habitual on netbooks and new LCD screens. Apart of that, the skin is 10 out of 10!!!

I have another issue here, but I don't know if this one is part done by QT libs. Check it out:

As you see, I get this white combo box. This happens in Ubuntu 10.10 with QT 4.7
