How to install modbus 2.9 on base system 2.5

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f6172e08758>

Hi,
I’m running OH2.5 on Synology. I have problems with modbus and want to try the latest modbus binding.
I download the .kar file [here]( from https://bintray.com/openhab/mvn/download_file?file_path=org%2Fopenhab%2Fdistro%2Fopenhab-addons%2F2.5.9%2Fopenhab-addons-2.5.9.kar)
From the openhab-addons-2.5.9\repository\org\openhab\addons\bundles I placed org.openhab.binding.modbus-2.5.9.jar file in /openHAB/addons/
I uninstalled modbus 2.5.0 binding with paperui.
I renamed the tmp and cache dirs to tmp_save and cache_save.
I restarted openhab and everything was working again but with paperui i didn’t see de modbus 2.9 binding with paperui.
What step do I need to do additionally?

Where are you looking in PaperUI? I don’t think you will see manually installed add-ons listed under add-ons. But I think you should see it when you scan for new devices in the inbox or try to create a new Thing manually.

Don’t use Modbus 2.5.9, a moments search shows people having trouble with it in this forum. A packaging issue.
Use 2.5.8 or a 2.5.10 snapshot.

I would expect the binding here.

. I only find the 2.5 version

Thanks I replaced it with snapshot 2.5.10. Now get it working

Do U have a link to the 2.5.10 addons package?

Found the latest, doesn’t help. I cannot install the modbus-binding on my Synology via web or manually:

No, you haven’t

use 2.5.8 or a 2.5.10 snapshot

Thanks you for your help; on my Synology there is only the 2.5.2 available. Cannot upgrade there. Using the modbus 2.5.8/10 add-ons throws more missing requirement errors. Very strange, yesterday everything worked with 2.5.2 + 2.5.2-modbus + e3dc-modbus-binding.

Why do you think you need this anyway? You do better looking into your actual problem.
