please be aware that openHABian is "only" a preinstalled and preconfigured Raspbian with settings similar to what was documented here and here (by me). That's why a few of your problems are not really related to openHABian.
This is indeed a small mistake I made. Other than with the platform independent zip file, the package repository installation divides your files up into different folders - as documented under file locations.
The folder you are looking for is
/var/lib/openhab2. You can copy your files over by the help of the ssh console or you can create an additional share via samba. I have done that to openHABian just now. Thanks for pointing out this detail
In your installation, just copy these lines into
This is how it should be. The root account is disabled by default on many Linux distributions nowadays. This is done in favor of the less risky possibility to use
sudo. When you type
su, you are asking your system to switch to the root account which is answered by a prompt for the root password. The root password is not "raspberry", there is no root password, that's why su fails with an authentication error You should use
sudo on a per-command basis or if you really know what you are doing and you want a root console, use
I'll look into that!
The instructions were not joking: "Connect to the openHAB 2 portal (available after another 15 minutes)". The first start takes some time but the portal will pop up eventually, believe me. This is not related to openHABian.
Same as above: "page not found" can be seen after around 10 minutes. Just have a little patience and give it 5 more minutes
Something went totally wrong here Please go to openhabian/releases and download the newest
openhabian-ua-netinst-....img. This file needs to be flashed to your SD card as with every other RaspberryPi image. Good luck!
This is a key functionality of openHAB 2 and PaperUI. PaperUI uses a database (in the userdata folder) to store settings. The etc folder allows to manually configure a system through files. Settings between these two worlds are NOT synced! There are multiple threads on this topic here in the forum.
