The new Zextras Theme for Zimbra web interface

Posted by

In the previous article, I have published screenshots of Modern Web Client Alternative for Zimbra Open Source Edition. The theme is made by Zextras. So, in this article, I am going to show you how to install the new Zextras theme for the Zimbra web interface

First, you must register to get a download link: zextras-theme-zimbra-interface. Then, you will receive instructions for installing the new Zextras theme

For Ubuntu users

Download the package from your Zimbra server using the following command:

wget https://link-download-from-zextras/zextras-theme-ubuntu.tgz

Note: Change link-download-from-zextras with the link received in the email

Extract the package you have just downloaded with

tar xvf zextras-theme-ubuntu.tgz

Execute the installation

cd zextras-theme-installer && sudo ./install.sh

Apply a new theme with zmskindeploy to be sure

su - zimbra -c 'zmskindeploy /opt/zimbra/jetty/webapps/zimbra/skins/zextras/'

Restart the Zimbra Web Application (mailboxd) manually with:

su - zimbra -c 'zmmailboxdctl restart'

For CentOs users

Download the package from your Zimbra server using the following command:

wget https://link-download-from-zextras/zextras-theme-centos.tgz

Note: Change link-download-from-zextras with the link received in the email

Extract the package you have just downloaded with

tar xvf zextras-theme-centos.tgz

Execute the installation

cd zextras-theme-installer && sudo ./install.sh

Apply a new theme with zmskindeploy to be sure

su - zimbra -c 'zmskindeploy /opt/zimbra/jetty/webapps/zimbra/skins/zextras/'

Restart the Zimbra Web Application (mailboxd) manually with:

su - zimbra -c 'zmmailboxdctl restart'

Now the users will find Zextras Theme in the Preferences Area, under “Appearance”. To choose it, then simply have to select it and save it.

If you want to change the default login form like below

Please do the following step

su - zimbra
sed -i 's/harmony/zextras/g' /opt/zimbra/jetty/etc/zimbra.web.xml.in
zmmailboxdctl restart

Good luck 🙂

    1. Hi Carl,
      1. You can replace LoginBanner_white.svg with your own at folder skins/zextras/logos or
      2. You can edit skin.properties then change LoginBanner_white.svg with your banner that put in folder logos

    any idea?

  6. Hi,

    Is there any way to install this theme on Rocky Linux 8? I have installed Zimbra on Rocky Linux 8.4 but theme installation ./install.sh file does not work. it throws error as “zimbra-core package is required and has not been found.”
