System Customization

The following DataVeil system customizations can be defined:

Font Size

Generally the default font size displayed by the DataVeil GUI is nominal for most users.

However, some users may prefer to adjust the font size.

To change the default DataVeil GUI font size:

Open the file etc/dataveil.conf in the DataVeil software folder.

Locate the default_options setting and include the --fontsize <size> parameter where size is the desired font point size.

For example, to set the default font size as 18 pt, add the --fontsize parameter at the end of the existing default_options value string so that it would would look something like:

default_options=" (...many other settings...)  --branding dataveil --fontsize 18"

Java JDK Home

DataVeil is preconfigured to use the OpenJDK java runtime that is included with the DataVeil software distribution.

Therefore, no Java/JDK configuration is required. In fact, it is recommended that you do not use a different JDK to the one that is supplied and preconfigured. This is because it has been observed that some other JDK's do not behave as expected and may even generate warning messages that could confuse some users.

However, if for some reason you would like to use a different JDK than the supplied pre-configured JDK, then you can do this as follows:

Open the file etc/dataveil.conf in the DataVeil software folder.

Specify the jdkhome setting with the path to the alternate JDK that you would like to use.

For example, to use the JDK that is located in the folder C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-18.0.2, the jdkhome setting would look like:

jdkhome="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-18.0.2"
