I just found myself a new xmms skin, and I really like the font they use in this circled region.

Does anyone know which font that is or know of one very similar I could use? It is similar to bitstream vera sans mono but not quite. I really love how clean it looks. :D

Thanks.

Other question: where did you get that skin from? :)

XMMS skins are just zip files. Try unzipping it, and then look in the .txt files.
It's there that XMMS sets the font.
Hope this helps

It's a font made out of a bitmap in the skin.

Ya I gathered that after extracting the skin.

Does anyone know of a similar font?

It looks sorta like silkscreen, mini7, or sevenet... all of them are pretty common on the web. I think it looks closest to mini7 extended.

Mini 7 isn't free anymore, but I'm sure you can find older free versions of it on the net still-- sevenet is based off of it.

Try extracting all the text from the skin and run it through the font recognizer at
