NatSkin does not reference styleseehts - looks broken

I reinstalled foswiki based on 1.0.9 and started with the NatSkin Installer. After the first installation the DBCacheContrib modul was not installed because of an error with CPAN BerkeleyDB.
After fixing this via commandline and enabling the plugins foswiki looks not so fine. I already tried to specify the STYLEPATH, but it does not makes any changes.

When looking at the NatSkinStyleBrowser NO styles are listed - i have no errors on foswiki warn file or in apache logfiles.

I attached screenshots of the foswiki and the stylebrowser ...

is it a problem related to the css files like the one described in Support.Question318 ?

Yes, I think so. The user may want to try the fix listed there, or download an older attachment version of NatSkin from the extensions web.

I already read Support.Question318 - Because of this Question i wrote that i activated all the plugins ( and that the DBCacheContrib Module did not install properly wink ) ...
Because there are no problems reported ( InstalledPlugins page and nothing in warn*.txt ) i do not know how to debug this problem and fix it of course. I hope to get some input how i can solve this problem.
I already looked into the generated HTML Code - the CSS is not linked into the code. i tried to do this my own ( where the javascript of JQueryPlugin is referenced ), but this did not solve the problem. The file permissions are set by the shell script which is provided at some installation support document ( i do not know exactly which one ) ...

Any ideas?

try installing AttachContentPlugin. i remember a mention of it being used, though i don't see it listed in DEPENDENCIES.

-- WillNorris - 19 Jan 2010

i fixed the problem of the empty skinbrowser - i used a wrong path ... but only "base" appears in the dropdown box.
Installing the AttachContentPlugin didnot change the layout - the screenshot is still "valid". I checked the listed dependencies - and all are installed.

I changed the Stylepath to JazzyNoteTheme and it looks nicer now ... does the base skin look like the screenshot? and i was always looking for the jazzynotetheme?

-- MartinBuchleitner - 19 Jan 2010

We had some problems with NatSkin caused by missing CSS file, where NatSkinPlugin did not offer JazzyNoteTheme as a possible theme because of the missing CSS file. If you provided the style path manually then perhaps this forced NatSkinPlugin to detect it and show it as a possible theme.

I could be wrong but I think the "base" style is not meant to be used directly, it's a base set of CSS which the different themes (JazzyNote included) should extend?

AFAIK JazzyNoteTheme is supposed to be the "default".

The latest version of NatSkin should fix most problems. It's a major upgrade, my advice would be to install & enable ZonePlugin first before you upgrade; then JQueryPlugin, then NatSkin, etc.
