MonoLite by fanco86 MonoLite by fanco86
This is a columns Ui theme for fb2k.

Special thanks to Magic12kenneth.

Updated a component and fixed the seekbar bug.


1.Copy everything to your fooobar2k folder.
2.Launch your foobar2k and select columns UI as the default UI.
3.Click the menu File -> Preferences, go to Display -> Columns UI,and then import the FCL file named "mono_lite.FCL".

noisesuppressor Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2013
Is there any way to change the font?
Markkoenig Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013
Go to Prefs/ColumnsUI/Layout and change the font where it appears in the different parts and/or in the global variables.

tells me QuickSearch is missing even though I have it installed and the function works. Any ideas? Need a different version of the component or something?
Craig321 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013
Excellent theme :)

Is there any way to use the group layout (with the album art etc.) to show the track that's currently playing? I don't group my playlist, so would be really useful to use that section as "now playing" instead.

Markkoenig Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013
Have a look at the Title Formatting Reference docs (Google-it), it's pretty simple. You'll have to add text strings to the Group Header (right click on ELPlaylist/Settings and don't forget to export the skin or it'll be likely to reset).

Can anyone help me with how to change the colour and layout? How can I make mine like the screen shot?
happytodd Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012
I managed to install this theme without to many hassles. Was slightly confusing at first but I did a fresh install of Foobar and followed the installation guide on here which worked quite well.

Then you'll want to disable the toolbar and statusbar to make it look identical to the picture above. Besides the fact that the scrollbar and window will be a different colour unless you install the same Visual Style which is a whole different ball park.

Good work!! :D
Markkoenig Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012
Hi! Congrats for the skin, it rocks.
I'm working on a modified version of your skin, I thought you would know before you find it by yourself, just in case : [link].

whats your OS skin?
TheBly Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2011
Since this doesn't work with 1.0, can you at least tell me what version it does work with?
flockabsm Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2011
Doesn't work with new foobar.

Can you tell me how this should work?

Thank you
viiaan Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2011
I use this all the time sice I met it 2years ago. love it. great job! tks!

How do I remove the windows border around it, instead of the new styled border I'm stuck with the default windows border.
spitfire-exe Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2010
Is there any way to get the "normal" playlist view back (instead of the playlist being sorted by albums). I really would like to browse my music by artist name but for some reason, I don't find any way to change the layout.

Nevertheless, this is definately one of my favourite fb2k themes. Thanks!
Ephoras Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2010
rightclick at the plylist and hit settings
go to "Group header"
search for :
"//---------------title format"

replace the recent things with:
//---------------title format

$drawtext(%artist%,$get(title_margin_left),0,$sub(%el_width%,150),$sub(%el_height%,16),$get(title_text_color),vcenter end_ellipsis)
$drawtext(%album%,$get(title_margin_left),0,$sub(%el_width%,150),$add(%el_height%,16),$get(title_text_color),vcenter end_ellipsis)

just these 2 colums.

now go to the grouping tab at the top.

click on the new button and add a name(or add the name first and click then..not sure atm)
%artist% in the first line
%artist% - %album% in the second

Save the settings.

Go to your plyslist and rightclick.
go for the entry "sorting" and activate the one you just made.

This should change the sorting to sort by artist.

hope you could need it.

ok after unsuccessfully trying 4 or 5 things i found a temporary fix, thought i would share.

i had foobar setup on my laptop with monolite, i simply copied the entire foobar2000 folder in program files and overwrote the foobar2000 installation on my workstation.

THANK GOD for that. still unsure as to where the incompatibility lies but until there is a fix this is the way to get this great skin working.

i can provide my foobar2000 installation folder if anyone needs it
joostdb Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2010
Oh no it seems like this is not fb2k 1.0 compatible. I get the same error as NickDC

I just tried reverting to fb2k ( and this is still happening... any idea why this could be??

This is absolutely the best skin available... nothing else comes close... I have spent so much time customizing this further, I need this thing to work!!!

fanco86, first of all thanks alot for the skin! any ideas how we can continue to use your skin?
NickDC Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2010
Does it work with foobar 1.0?
Couse i got this problem

parablu Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
Awesome theme, thanks. Just one question. Can I change the width of the library column? It's so small right now, I hate having to scroll around to see the artist names etc :(
parablu Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
Alright, I found out how to change the width of the library panel, but the playlist panel won't follow - the library panel will cover the playlist panel :(
wallybescotty Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
how is foobar player compared to windows media player, can u save playlists in it and play videos? im looking for a player that might replace WMP but so far not happy with any cuz they cant do that simple function lol
ramonvillaw Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2009
add lyrics tab?
MikelArdRi Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2009
Great skin! Could you add tabs to the panel's biography and the lyrics and the button opens the settings for complete happiness?) Thanks in advance!
danieltine Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2011
oh yeah, lyrics tab, that'd be perfection.
Junior-Spirit Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2009


我把 seekbar 移动到了下方,同时也降低了下方的高度,请问 elplaylist 的高度如何修改?实在找不到了……

你好,我的歌曲几乎都没有内嵌封面图片,但这个主题好像只会读取 mp3、m4a 中内嵌的artwork,foo_covers 的设置不会起作用,请问有什么方法实现吗
viiaan Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2009
This is my favorite FB2K skin. Great job!
fatalpoisonwhisper Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2009  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I really like this theme :D

I was wondering if its possible to have the library panel width expandable (i hate horizontal scrolling) and also a feature on the right click menu when on the playlist area, to allow you to focus the now playing track, as it doesn't skip along when playing random?
Decaytion Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2009  Professional Interface Designer
nice! I like it. :]
mvp12 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2009

nice work!

Please, help...

I copy every component from the "components" folder from the archive to foobar2000's components folder, choose Columns UI in foobar, importing the theme, but then I get "Service extension not found".

I'm using fb2k v0.9.5.2
fanco86 Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2009
Maybe you can try a higher version of fb2k.
Nist0 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2009   Interface Designer
Yep, I tried that once I saw that it was made for v0.9.6.* - Worked.
linearradiation Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2009
I remade my mod, started all over and the only thing that's still original now is the basic layout (your skin was a great source of inspiration)and quite a bit of the code, this is what it looks like: [link] the filter button toggles the filter panes (with your original code) do I have permission to release this?
