There is no "standard" Slim touch skin. The one that exists is one that
some hardworking fool in the Netherlands or somesuch created.

I think if you search through the archives you can find out who the guy is
and email him directly with the changes/enhancements he might be willing to
collaborate with you.

Mark--

I'm very interested to hear what you end up doing with the AirPanel as
your Slimserver control...please post to this list with your experiences
with it.

I don't have an AirPanel, but my dream home audio device involves a
touch screen. The AirPanel/Slimserver combo to control a squeezebox
would be very close to a perfect solution for me (aside from the Windows
requirement, which sucks). I'm curious how well the AirPanel works with
some of the other Slimserver skins, particularly FishBone...
