Well, it doesn't say anything about installation. there is only one "requiriments", which basically tells you not to worry about downloading anything and recommendations to use another skin of his because it goes together.
So I downloaded the .rmskin, installed it, restarted rainmeter, but the icons are invisible.
It's almost never as simple as not worrying and have everything done for you, and not just when it comes to this skin or Rainmeter - a basic user involvement or awareness of how to use something is typically needed anyway. You do have to have ImageMagick installed (whether the skin downloads it or yourself) and have the corresponding .png icons from the ...\@Resources\Loglyphs folder of the skin ready to use (if they can't be extracted by the skin from the corresponding executables, that is).
For example, in my case, it works, but as you can see it's not the same for every program (because not all the icons are properly present in the mentioned folder or could be extracted from the executables):
In the screenshot above, the icons for Chrome, Windows Settings or Photoshop already exist at the right size in the said folder, hence they work by default. The icon for Winamp was able to be extracted at the correct size from the Winamp.exe executable despite not existing in the folder, so it works as well. A couple of the rest (e.g. ApexDC, AVerTV or Total Commander) of the icons were able to be extracted from their executables, but not at their right size, so they appear smaller (I extracted myself the 48x48 version of the icon from AVerTV.exe using ResourceHacker
and placed the converted .png in the folder, thus it is shown at the right size above). The rest are invisible because the skin could not find the properly named .png in that folder and couldn't extract an icon from the executable either.
The solution might involve one or both of the below possibilities:
- install ImageMagick if you didn't already (I suppose this is used to handle various images or convert them)
- create the correspondingly named .png files in the already mentioned folder as an alternative in case the icons can't be extracted from executables
Other than that, I don't know why your screenshot shows the skin white - unless you somehow configured it that way. For me it shows transparent, as the screenshot above demonstrates. Lastly, you should make sure that the raindock.exe executable and the .ahk script from the @Resources folder are able to run and aren't, for example, blocked by some overzealous AV and such.
