[SOLVED] No Basic UI or Paper UI or

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Raspberry Pi3+
  • openHAB version: latest version
  • Issue of the topic: No panels to choose from

Just installed OPENHABIAN from scratch and now missing UI icons.
I only see two ‘panels’ openhab log viewer and openhabian help.

No Basic UI, Paper UI etc.


What is missing? What did I do wrong this time?

What does the event log say? On a new installation you should see lines like this:

2019-12-20 15:09:39.966 [thome.event.ExtensionEvent] - Extension 'package-standard' has been installed.
2019-12-20 15:09:53.844 [thome.event.ExtensionEvent] - Extension 'ui-homebuilder' has been installed.
2019-12-20 15:09:53.846 [thome.event.ExtensionEvent] - Extension 'ui-basic' has been installed.
2019-12-20 15:09:53.848 [thome.event.ExtensionEvent] - Extension 'ui-habpanel' has been installed.
2019-12-20 15:09:53.849 [thome.event.ExtensionEvent] - Extension 'ui-paper' has been installed.
2019-12-20 15:09:58.300 [thome.event.ExtensionEvent] - Extension 'ui-dashboard' has been uninstalled.

Did you give enough time for everything to fully start back up? Please post the error logs you see.

It works! Thank you all for the help.
Don’t know what I did but removed the SD and reinserted and now it is fine.

Likely, you did not wait long enough. The log you posted was just for initially installing and starting OpenHAB. It then needs to download and install addons such as Basic UI and Paper UI.
