 Hi Girls and Guys,

  i want to install the Daddio Skin
 (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Gallery_of_user_styles/Daddio 
 [5])

  I have a Ubuntu 10.04 installed machine here.
  MediaWiki installed with "apt-get install mediawiki" in version 1.15.

  The main installation is in:
  /usr/share/mediawiki

  a secondary path is in:
  /var/lib/mediawiki

  where are much symbol links to "/usr/share/mediawiki" like this

  When I copy the skin to "/usr/share/mediawiki/skins" and edit the File
