6 Console Management : 6.3 Customizing the Console

To change the colors, fonts, or images displayed by the console, you can use ssh to connect to the console host; once connected, use your choice of editor to modify the files that control the onscreen display.
The css rules for the EDB Ark user console are stored in the styles.css file. The file is located at:
Some modifications to the styles.css file will be visible when you reload the page in your browser; if a change is not immediately visible, restart the server to apply the changes. If a change is not visible after restarting the server, you may need to clear your browser cache.
To modify the images that are displayed by the console user interface, replace the .png files in the images directory with the images you wish to display. The images directory is located at:
/usr/share/tomcat/webapps/PPCDConsole/VAADIN/themes/pcsconsole/images
Please note that the logo displayed on the login screen is defined in the i18n.properties file; for more information about modifying the logo image, please refer to comments in that file.
The loginscreen.html template file defines the page layout for the login screen and the terms of use URL (referenced on the login screen). The file is located at:
/usr/share/tomcat/webapps/PPCDConsole/WEB-INF/classes/com/
enterprisedb/pcs/ui/loginscreen.html
Use the i18n.properties file to modify text and external URLs displayed in the Ark console. The i18n.properties file is located at:
/usr/share/tomcat/webapps/PPCDConsole/WEB-INF/classes/
i18n.properties
Comments within the i18n.properties files identify the onscreen information controlled by each entry in the file. You must restart the server to apply any modifications to the properties file.
