How to use 1.x Bindings w/Paper UI

I’m confused about a basic concept with OH2. I’m trying to setup my Ecobee3 and, as I understand it, I need to find the 1.x binding (I don’t think there’s a newer one). I see comments saying “PaperUI can’t do anything with 1.x bindings - those need to be directly configured from the text files.” With that said, PaperUI has a setting to “enable 1.x bindings.” So I think the state is “an operator can activate bindings via PaperUI, but they must configure each of those 1.x bindings directly in the necessary text files.” Ok, so that’s fine, but how come after I check the “enable 1.x bindings” box, and then restart OH2, I don’t see a single 1.x binding available to activate?

There is no ecobee binding available at all?
What about MQTT?

Correct. No Ecobee binding. No 1.x bindings at all (which makes me worried the “enable 1.x” didn’t actually work… how can I confirm?). I have no idea what MQTT is… can you point me at an explanation (also no, using the literal string “mqtt” shows zero results, for the record)?

It’s another 1.x binding that’s why asked.
I don’t know what to say

What package is installed?

I think this is what you’re asking, right?

root@raspberrypi:~# date; uname -a;  apt list --installed | grep -i openh
Fri Jul  6 13:57:55 PDT 2018
Linux raspberrypi 4.9.35-v7+ #1014 SMP Fri Jun 30 14:47:43 BST 2017 armv7l GNU/Linux

WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface yet. Use with caution in scripts.

openhab2/stable,now 2.2.0-1 all [installed,automatic]
openhab2-addons/stable,now 2.2.0-1 all [installed]

When you first installed openHAB it asked you what package you want


You need to be in either Standard or Expert to see the 1.x bindings

I don’t recall what I chose. Looking at /etc/openhab2/services/addons.cfg I think I’m in standard:

root@raspberrypi:/etc/openhab2/services# date; cat addons.cfg

# The installation package of this openHAB instance
# Note: This is only regarded at the VERY FIRST START of openHAB
# Note: If you want to specify your add-ons yourself through entries below, set the package to "minimal"
# as otherwise your definition might be in conflict with what the installation package defines.
# Optional. If not set, the dashboard (https://<yourserver>:8080/) will ask you to choose a package.
# Valid options:
#   - minimal  : Installation only with dashboard, but no UIs or other add-ons. Use this for custom setups.
#   - simple   : Setup for using openHAB purely through UIs - you need to expect MANY constraints in functionality!
#   - standard : Default setup for normal users, best for textual setup
#   - expert   : Setup for expert users, especially for people migrating from openHAB 1.x
#   - demo     : A demo setup which includes UIs, a few bindings, config files etc.
# See for a detailed explanation of these packages.
#package = standard

# Access Remote Add-on Repository
# Defines whether the remote openHAB add-on repository should be used for browsing and installing add-ons.
# This not only makes latest snapshots of add-ons available, it is also required for the installation of
# any legacy 1.x add-on. (default is true)
#remote = true

# Include legacy 1.x bindings. If set to true, it also allows the installation of 1.x bindings for which there is 
# already a 2.x version available (requires remote repo access, see above). (default is false)
#legacy = true

# A comma-separated list of bindings to install (e.g. "sonos,knx,zwave")
#binding = 

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

# A comma-separated list of persistence services to install (e.g. "rrd4j,jpa")
#persistence = 

# A comma-separated list of actions to install (e.g. "mail,pushover")
#action = 

# A comma-separated list of transformation services to install (e.g. "map,jsonpath")
#transformation = 

# A comma-separated list of voice services to install (e.g. "marytts,freetts")
#voice = 

# A comma-separated list of miscellaneous services to install (e.g. "myopenhab")
#misc = 

Edit: Ah ha!! I assume I was in standard mode given that the relevant line was commented out (and from the file comments the default state is standard ). Regardless of that, I switched to expert and hup’d. I now see 1.x bindings, including Ecobee!

Cool mark the solution, please.
