How to install a SNAPSHOT version of binding in a openHAB 3.1.0 release installation

I´m a newbie with openhab and I´m trying to install a snapshot of a volumio2 binding, the link is
I copied the jar file in the folder /usr/share/openhab/addons but I can´t find it in the openhab installation. I looked in the bindings and in the repository

The instructions for openhab 2 I found did not help me.
Thanks a much

Have you checked the log?
It could be that there is a missing dependency which you need to install first.

Stop openhab service and start it again.
Check the log for any messages about the addon and post it here.

What did you exactly do ?
Did you

  • Uninstall the old binding
  • Download the jar file for the later version of the binding
  • Place that jar file into the addons folder.

Did you try to clear the cache ?
What is shown in openhab.log file ?

Hej @dirkdirk
One of the log shows 2021-09-18 11:47:46.535 [WARN ] [org.apache.felix.fileinstall ] - Fehler beim Starten des Bundles: file:/usr/share/openhab/addons/org.openhab.binding.volumio2-3.1.0 -SNAPSHOT.jar org.osgi.framework.BundleException: Modul konnte nicht aufgelöst werden: org.openhab.binding.volumio2 [313]

I´v change the language to read it.

Hej @Wolfgang_S
There was no old binding.
I have got the link from the author of the binding
yes I´v place it in the addons folder
No I´vnt try to clear the cache (don´t know where :frowning: )
a copy of the log is in the answer to Dirk.
My english is not so good :frowning: that I understand all and must take help of Google translation in some cases
But thanks for trying help Me :wink:

Looks like there is a space in the filename. Remove that.

Hej @J-N-K
I have take a look but there is no space in the filename.

So the space between 3.1.0 and -SNAPSHOT in the log is from copying?

Try diag 313 on the console and show what can’t be resolved.

Hmmm I could be little stupid, but how did I come in the console from openhab ?

Have found it but must change to all. I would do it later today.
Thanks a lot

I tryed to come in in console but password was not accepted. I changed password of openhabian after installation and with My account i don´t come in. Or must I change to su openhabian to come in?

Unfortunately I have no idea how the permission on openhabian are set. On my System the console is only available with sudo openhab-cli console.

I would try it again.

The console password is also fixed at habopen and is not easily changed.


@Bruce_Osborne @dirkdirk @Wolfgang_S with su openhabian come I little bit closer. Now is the question why is password not excepted. Could be wrong keyboard installed.
Is not the keyboard. I think I have no user openhab, I only have the user openhabian but if I try to log in i openhab-cli console there comes up openhab as user.
An idea to fix ?
could be passwd openhab a possibility?
Tryed it and get back : passwd: Du kan inte visa eller modifiera lösenordsinformationen för openhab.
Thanks @Bruce_Osborne that was the dooropener
