This article is meant for all experienced skinners, who like to develop or mod skins for the GP3 plugin. The main focus of the article is to find out the relevant screen names and to support people who are interested in developing or modding skins.


  • Experience in Skin development Modding

Finding out the GP3 screen names

After installation of the GP3-plugins, you can find the file skin.xml in the directory:


This file contains the following items:

  • Infobar Renderer
  • Basis Screens
  • OLED Screens

It is also helpful to amend the file in


as described below:

Search for the routine readSkin in

You can find a for-loop in the routine some lines later starting with for n in names: (Approx. at line 524 )

 	# try all skins, first existing one have priority 
 	for n in names:
  		myscreen, path = lookupScreen(n, style_id)
 		if myscreen is not None:
 			# use this name for debug output
 			name = n
 			print names

Add the following line "print names" before the break entry and execute the following command in Telnet :

init 4 && sleep 5 && einigma2

If you now open the menus of the GP3 plugins and screens, the screen names will be printed in the console for each screen you open.

e.g. VariableList3Button_geminiweather

Why should we do this?

GP3 contains 9 basic screens used as User Interface in GP3:

  • Config2Button
  • Config3Button
  • VariableList3Button
  • VariableList3ButtonSmallIcon
  • VariableList4Button
  • VariableListNoButton
  • VariableList2Lines
  • VariableListCover
  • VList3Button2Entry

All GP3-Plugins that need a VariableList3Button screen, make use of the base screen. If you want to create a different screen for the Gemini weather plugin, you will need the name of the screen in the plugin to create the according design.

You get the proper screen names via the above described way.

Base screen for allp lugins that use this screen --> VariableList3Button Plugin screen for the Gemini weather plugin --> VariableList3Button_geminiweather

You can compare this to the relation between skin.xml and skin_user.xml.
