although this will work for any plugin, this howto is geared towards enabling the tables plugin for ckeditor in Xibo. this will allow you to create tables in the text editor.
open a terminal and navigate to /path/to/webserver/xibo/3rdparty/ckeditor
use nano or your favorite text editor to open config.js

a recent question on the xibo launchpad page asked for a detailed explaination on how to change the upload limit in php from the default 2mb to something else. i explained in detail on the question, but thought a visual guide would help others out. (click the images for a larger version)
open a terminal window on your webserver and use nano to open /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

i decided to create a few alternative splash screens for xibo.
to use one of these images as your splash screen for xibo, download the file you want and save it in /opt/xibo/pyclient/client/python/resources. then edit 0.xml in the resources folder and change the tag that says “splash.jpg” to the name of your new splash image (in this case splash1.png, splash2.png, or splash3.png). the last step is to remove 0.xml from /opt/xibo/pyclient/client/python/data and restart xibo to see your brand new splash screen.
