'/etc/openhab/addons-enabled' is linked wrong, it needs to be a symlink to '/opt/openhab-runtime/addons'

How do I check if the addon is enabled? I created a symlink to org.openhab.binding.homematic-1.8.1.jar in /etc/openhab/addons-enabled but don't get any information in the log file.

I am a bit confused, i a pretty sure i updated this package to 1.8.0 a few days ago... i will have a look at it.

Yes, i noticed the wrong symlink too. Will fix it soon. I will also have a look at protecting those config files.

About addons vs. addons-enabled: openhab-addons installs ALL addons to /opt/openhab-addons, but NONE are enabled by default. You just symlink those you need into your /etc/openhab/addons-enabled. Its basically what you describe, but with symlink instead of copying, although copying would work too.

Thnx for the package. However, the following lines in PKGBUILD doe not work as you may expect:

mkdir -p etc/openhab/addons-enabled
ln -s /etc/openhab/addons-enabled opt/openhab-runtime/addons

It ends up creating "/opt/openhab-runtime/addons/addons-enabled" and none of the addons-enabled work in openHAB.

Also, it is better not to call the directory "addons-enabled", but simply "addons". Learning openHAB is not easy and this unnecessary modification only adds to confusion.

It would be also better to protect etc/openhab/configurations/logback.xml and logback_debug.xml and users.cfg from updating.

BTW: Installing openhab-addons to the addons directory is probably not what the user wants - it would enable all of the bundles. I guess installing them to a /opt/openhab-runtime/addons-available and informing the user via install script (about manual copying of those to be enabled) would do the job.

The pkgbuild contains java-runtime as dependency. Java-runtime-headless would probably be a better fit. Any way a could include an either-or?

Shouldn't the dependencies include jre7-openjdk-headless/jre8-openjdk-headless?

New Version available ;)

Suggestion: have openhab run as its own user instead of as root.
This should improve security.

Actually, the config folder in etc was mistakenly named 'configuration', not 'configurations'.
I changed it, so its consistently 'configurations'.
