as an openhab newbie I open designer, and point it to /etc/openhab2 directory for configurations. I get a dialog saying it’s invalid configuration directory, and opening fails.
After googling around, I added empty files openhab_default.cfg and openhab.cfg, and it opens the directory.
It would be nice if it was more informative, instead of bluntly failing. It should give a clue why it refuses to open the dialog. As a newbie, it makes me feel lost with the program. That is the configuration directory which comes from dpkg packages, so it should definately be ok.
Dialog should mention why it doesn’t accept the dir, e.g. “No openhab.cfg file present in the directory, not recognizing it as configuration directory.” Or better yet, asking whether user wants to add such empty file.
As such, it gives pretty unfriendly first user experience. Can such be added?
