Totally stuck installing

  • Platform information: Linux
    • Hardware: HyperV VM
    • OS: Ubuntu 16.4 LTS
    • Java Runtime Environment: 8 installed by ophabian-config
    • openHAB version:2.3.0
  • Issue of the topic: when i visit x.x.x.x:8080 I only see two boxes to click. One is OPENHAB LOG VIEWER and the other is OPENHABIAN HELP. I can’t figutre out how to finish config and get to papr UI or any other OpenHAB UI

What does your addons.cfg file look like? Should be located in /etc/openhab2/services/addons.cfg

You can configure your addons from there but you shouldn’t have to.

should I somehow start over here?
should I not have use openHabian?

In the file uncomment, package = minimal and change minimal to standard.
Then restart with: sudo /etc/init.d/openhab2 restart

executing now

Executing now, as in your able to see and access PaperUI?

ok. no more links. I get it. how can i put a snip of something?

anyway, I’m still seeing the same thing

Check to make sure these files have the correct owner:user and permissions.

ls -al /opt/openhabian/

ls -al /usr/local/bin/openhabian-config

Also have you tried the openhabian tools to make sure all packages needed and permissions are met? sudo openhabian-config

Looking at the log might help tell what the issue is.

I never set up any users in openHAB. is that a problem? What all should i check to install in OpenHABian tools?

From the terminal type: sudo openhabian-config then enter your password.
This will take you to a screen where you can make selections about various harware and software configurations.

I did and I elected to install all that it recommended and way at the end of the install, look what it says:

I may elect to wipe this Ubuntu VM and start over. Do you recommend using Ubuntu server or desktop? This is in my home and I plan to use it in conjunction with my echo for home automation purposes.

Personally I would purchase something like a raspberry pi. Uses way less power and cheap.

Host not found, do you have your VM set up to allow connections with HTTP?

Try pinging from openhab terminal.

ubuntu server command line pings fine
OpenHAB console doesn’t support ping command

All on one line:

wget -qO - '' | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
