Milight binding


I’ve installed openhab on a unbuntu pc following the instrsuctions under the instalalation section. I installed then the milight 2.0 binding via the paper ui I have an ibox2 connected to my wifi and working with the milight app. i ran the scan button from the inbox but nothing happens. i then added the bridge manually and them a lot of things popped up in the inbox color group 1 to 4 white group 1 to 4 etc. i tried adding them as things and them linkind them to items but nothing happens. I also uninstalled openhab and linux and installed it again but the same behaviour. I also tried to configure the things and items manually via the files as described here
and still not thing happens.
i would really appreciate if someone could take the time and help me out.
