I'd like to modify the menu options on the standard Confluence skin to add a few more options to the home menu.

Presuming that I make a copy of the existing skin, and rename it in all the right places (Folder\XML files, etc), where should I put the new skin folder so that Openelec can find it?

/usr/share/xbmc/addons/
if you want to change something, first you have to change the skin name to something else, i forgot the naming store but in .xml somewhere, then copy confluence folder to /storage/.xbmc/addons/

Is this folder hidden in some way?

I can see /usr/share/xbmc/ but I cannot see the Addons directory.

I can see:

Language
Media
Sounds
System
Userdata

Also, how do I access /storage/.xbmc/addons/ ?

I'm using SSH from a Windows PC (Putty).

I have half a dozen skins installed, but the only one that I can seem to find is the older Confluence Vertical skin.

I haven't used SSH in a while, so I've forgotten half of the commands.

Never mind that last bit.

I've crated a Samba Share to /storage/.xbmc/.

Much easier.
