What did you choose as the package when first setting up OH?

I did a package repository installation from openHAB 2 Stable Repository.

What I mean is when you first opened up the dashboard after first installing, what did you choose? Demo, Simple, Expert, etc.

I could not remeber what I did choose, but I found it in OPENHAB_USERDATA/etc/org.openhab.addons.cfg. It says ‘package = simple’.

That explains it. When you choose simple a default set of addons in each of those categories are installed and those categories are removed as part of the simplification.

I think you can change it in services/system.cfg or maybe addons.cfg

The comments list the valid options I think.

Thank you very much! Setting ‘package = standard’ in services/addons.cfg solved the problem.
