Please clarify tihs for me - is the home directory for the tomcat user set
to /usr/share/tomcat, or to /usr/share/tomcat/.guacamole?  It *should* be
set to /usr/share/tomcat, and then within the home directory should be a
.guacamole sub-directory, which should contain the
file and an extensions directory.  So, to summarize:

- Tomcat user home: /usr/share/tomcat
- GUACAMOLE_HOME: /usr/share/tomcat/.guacamole
- Guacamole Properties: /usr/share/tomcat/.guacamole/
- Extensions directory: /usr/share/tomcat/.guacamole/extensions

should be set to /usr/share/tomcat/.guacamole.

> If you're running 0.9.9 you should really consider upgrading.  First, I'm
not sure when custom branding support was added in, but it may not work in
that version, and, second, that's 4 releases behind the current version,
and there have been lots of improvements since then.  0.9.13-incubating is
the current released version, and then the git repo master will eventually
be 0.9.14-incubating and has more changes/fixes on top of that.
