I have just taken the plunge into OH2 and Linux for the very first time. I have almost 0 experience with command line work but have done quite well setting up Ubuntu VM on my QNAP and now have a working instance of OH2 installed.
I have made a lot of drawings and plans on how i want my house to look in the end, but at this point i havent purchased any smart devices to work with OH2…apart from my Samsung TV and Onkyo Amp.
So, after setting up OH2 as per the guide from Openhab i was able to install the bindings for Samsung and Onkyo via the new UI. I understand that i will need to create the following to get started
I have mapped two shares to my PC: “openhab2-userdata” and “openhab2-conf”
Im not sure where i can find the file openhab.cfg as the tutorials im following mention editing those files for bindings etc. Is this now different in OH2?
Last thing to ask was the OH2 install guide didnt mention anywhere about MQTT - Do i need to install that on Ubuntu seperately now? If so should i stop the openhab2 service first?
