Addons directory


I have just started to try out openHAB to integrate my Z-wave network and
Using Raspberry PI 2 with manual install (not apt-get)

So need to add z-wave binding to “addons” directory but cannot find that. Where should it be?

How did you install openHAB. If you installed via the preferred apt-get method than the addons are in /usr/share/openhab/addons. If not it is located in what ever directory you unzipped openHAB into. Most of the outdated instructions out there have you put openHAB in /opt/openhab.

I installed alpha-2 release via manual unzip in /opt/openhab .
There is no addons directory.

Sure the apt package would be convenient but I like to have a bit more control while learning :slight_smile:

Should I create it somewhere?

Oops, didn’t notice the openHAB2 tag. I don’t know OH 2 that well. My answer was for OH 1.

If you are using a current build from, it should be right there in the root of the extracted folder. If not, simply create it there.

I downloaded the package mentioned in your tag post

but also downloaded the one above…neither have “addons” dir.

But created it :slight_smile:

There is no apt package for 2.0 Alpha, right?

There is.

Yes, that’s right. an apt package will follow later.

@rlkoshak, for OH2 installed via apt-get is ‘almost’ the same ( /usr/share/openhab2/addons ). ( I needed for OH2 and your answer helped me, thanks)
