Mixxx does not show anything from the top toolbar (B decks, Waves, etc.) except for Logo. Yesterday everything was fine. Neither Windows 10 nor anything else has been updated or changed. I can toggle show/hide EFFECTS on Deere.
Has anyone experienced this?

Hi everyone, and to the dark metal team, firstly I think this skin is great, and I'm using it on mixxx 2.2 on ubuntu 19.04, but I think I noticed a bug in the FX rack, it seems to be capricious with a 1920 x 1080 upscale once the command "export QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR = 0" used in the "mixxx.desktop" (Exec=gnome-terminal -e /usr/share/applications/mixxx.desktop & export QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR = 0 mixxx ;mixxx), so on my computer it didn't always display all the plugins parameters. I'm a beginner, but I've made a hack in the "styles.qss" file to fix the problem and it looks like to work fine.
Here is a modified "styles.qss" file.


I've also made a few changes to the "skin.xml" in the main folder, at the top of the file :

Code: Select all
<!-- <attribute config_key="[EffectRack1],num_effectunits">4</attribute> -->
   <attribute config_key="[EffectRack],show,transition">1</attribute>
   <attribute config_key="[EffectsMaximize],library,transition">1</attribute>
   <attribute config_key="[EffectsMinimize],library,transition">1</attribute>
   <attribute config_key="[EffectsSelector],font">1</attribute>

(When choosing another skin or color, you'll have to reload the library font size in the pref. after skin has been modified ; to prevent a broken hack of this, it's better to clear all plugins of the FX rack before closing mixxx, then restart mixxx, changes should take effects correctly.)

Thank you for putting some love on DarkMetal.
I original had a plan to make this a standard Mixxx skin.
Unfortunately it falls a bit behind the other official skins.

It would be grate if you could prepare a GitHub pull request against:
Maybe it becomes ready to merge into master finally.

hi Daschuer, Ronso and everyone, thanks to all for your works, I just wanted to share a screenshot of personal work, done from the DarkMetal look, which illustrates some additional sections, made on ubuntu.
