Nethesis Launcher is a Cockpit app launcher available on HTTPS and HTTP ports. The launcher is enabled if:

  • Cockpit UI is installed (package nethserver-cockpit)

  • there is no home page already configured in httpd (no index page in /var/www/html)


If Cockpit UI has been manually installed, execute the following command to enable Nethesis Launcher:

signal-event nethserver-register-update

Launcher customization

You can use your company brand in the app launcher by editing this configuration file: /usr/share/httpd/noindex/nethesis/res/launcher_data.ini. The default content of launcher_data.ini is the following:

[Launcher data]
LauncherTitle=Nethesis Launcher

The file contains four properties that can be customized:

  • LauncherTitle: text appearing at the top left corner of the page

  • LogoImage: logo image appearing at the bottom left corner of the page

  • LogoHref: logo hyperlink

  • DocsHref: documentation hyperlink


If you want to use your company brand in the Nethesis Launcher just follow these steps:

  • upload your logo image (e.g. my-company-logo.png) into /usr/share/httpd/noindex/nethesis/res directory of your server:

    scp my-company-logo.png root@servername:/usr/share/httpd/noindex/nethesis/res/
  • open /usr/share/httpd/noindex/nethesis/res/launcher_data.ini using vim or any other text editor and edit LauncherTitle, LogoImage, LogoHref and DocsHref properties:

    vim /usr/share/httpd/noindex/nethesis/res/launcher_data.ini

    The resulting file content should be similar to this:

    [Launcher data]
    LauncherTitle=My Company
