Help to install HABmin - a graphical user interface for openHAB 2

Hi

I installed openhabian on my raspberry pi and would like to install HABmin - a graphical user interface for openHAB 2 but how do I do it must be said I’m totally new to this world

Open http://<ip_of_your_server>:8080/start/index in a browser,
go to PaperUI -> Add-Ons -> User Interfaces -> HABmin install

Start by reading

http://docs.openhab.org/

and you might want to setup the demo for better understanding:
http://docs.openhab.org/tutorials/demo.html

I would like to install HABmin aswell. Unfortunatly i hav no option for “user interfaces” when I open paperUI -> Add-Ons.

I found a solution for Installing Habmin. Once you selected Simple on the first installation screen habmin UI is not installed. Therefore edit the file

/etc/openhab2/services/addons.cfg

uncomment the following line and add the UIs you like to install

# A comma-separated list of UIs to install (e.g. "basic,paper")
ui = basic,paper,habmin

just restart openhab afterwards.

tanks i got it running

In my installation (openhab2 from package repository installation from here) I only have the columns BINDINGS, VOICE, MISC. Why am I missing the other columns (PERSISTANCE, ACTIONS, TRANSFORMATIONS,VOICE)?

Avner: I have the same problem due I chose the “simple” package in the Initial Setup window as below:

http://docs.openhab.org/tutorials/beginner/1sttimesetup.html

I was looking for the solution whole yesterday evening and I think the best will be NoFhem solution.
The file to edit:

/etc/openhab2/services/addons.cfg

For example If you are using Raspbery PI as a hardware platform (as me)….
http://docs.openhab.org/installation/rasppi.html
….you have to find the Pi in your Network Devices in “My Coputer” (Win7) and then find the right directory. (the password:login - openhabian:openhabian will be needed to access).

In the file “addons.cfg” you will have to uncomment the line by deleting “#” sign and then add names of UI as you need after “=” sign. For file edit please use Windows notepad or any not invasive text editor (the MS Office Word or Windows WordPad falls away)

Hi,

does this work with openhabian 2.2-01 too? In the new surface there is only log viewer, help, paper ui and hapanel available.
Many thx in advance
