OpenHab 2.2 has been running our house successfully for a few months.
As I saw upgrade and fixes already in current development, I want to install the latest version on a second Pine 64 I have for this purpose. And swap these two machines when it works.
I wanted to start clean so I reinstalled the SD card and did an upgade to 2.2 release build.
Then I made a mistake. I clicked “Skip the package selection”
I can re-start over, yet I hope there are other options
is there a way to go back to the initial page?
I do understand that I can install them using addons.cfg.
I think this last one would be a lot better as I can reuse the scripts for the installation of both Pine64s. Like I now already do with all the scripts for the sitemap, items things etc etc …
It was not clear from the documentation that part of the documentation is in the addons.cfg itself. That took me a while to figure out. Yet now I know that, I’m still confused on what names to use in the cfg file. (Every section contains a few examples, yet it’s unclear where I can find the rest.
Where can I find these names?
When I select option though the paper UI, I assume that what I select is saved somewhere.
A) Is it?
C) Is that saved in the same format that I can reuse in the addons.cfg ?
Now I see what may have distracted you: @job posted his addons.config, that is a different story: that one gets populated after you edit your addons.cfg or make any changes in PaperUI and contains doublequotes, the addons.config should not be edited manually!
It’s hard to explain in a plain text file to just have the coma-separated list of items you want to have activated in the config, but not use some kind of distinguishing between normal text and the one which has to be included.
But - on the other hand every configuration already in the ootb-version of addons.cfg didn’t have quotes… so?
Now I’m even more confused . This is the start of the file.
Nowhere it says it can’t be changed manually. It even explains how to change it.
when I do change it, it works mostly while expected.
