ich habe eine andere (bessere) Lösung gefunden mit Hilfe von Xvfb. Mit Xvfb wird eine virtuelle X11 session gestartet und MM darauf angezeigt. Dann wird ein Screenshot vom framebuffer gemacht und auf dem ePaper angezeigt.
# Create Virtual MagicMirror Display
sudo apt update
sudo apt install xvfb
Xvfb :1 -screen 0 800x480x24 -fbdir /home/pi &
DISPLAY=:1 nohup npm start &
# Create Screenshot
cat /home/pi/Xvfb_screen0 | convert xwd:- bmp:/home/pi/screenshot.bmp
# Run Python Script to update ePaper Display
I’ve used this:
mount one on your mirror, one on the wall. It divides the weight evenly over every anchor point and you can use more than two screws to hang your mirror on. (can be usefull if your mirror is heavy and the material of your wall can’t support too much weight)

you guys were no help. lol.
This is what fixed it: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=68183&p=497867
@lucallmon That is just rude and unnecessary in my opinion. Keep in mind that everyone here is doing this voluntarily and (usually) in their free time. Maybe you should not crosspost next time, only discuss problems related to the MagicMirror project and keep a friendly and respectful attitude towards everyone around here.
I’m create my first magic mirror.
I’ve find in the 3rd party module list a nice module with the name “MMM-temp-ds18b20”.
My problem is that I don’t know how I can realize this. Because to practise this nice idea I need some wireless modules which send the temperature information to the Raspberry Pi.
Maybe someone of you has do this in former times and can gave me some tips?
Thank you for your help and many greetings
@fersev said in I am sure nobody know it but...perhaps you know a fade in/out switch?:
Hey guys! I finally I found it!!!
See that… I just learned something new!! Thanks for sharing!!!
@Manmachine Thank you. I have been looking at the product they offer for a long time. It was the best i’ve found in denmark but I wasnt sure if it was good enough. So nice you hear it is working for you. Then I will order one as well.
You will most often get bleedthrough, but how much really depends on your screen. You could look through the posts in the show your mirror section. Here you will be able to find some pictures where you can see the bleedthrough and decide for yourself if you can live with that
@vazma I have 3%, thats a bit low. I believe that 15-25% should be acceptable enough for normal room conditions and still not getting to much bleed from the monitors backlight.
40%+ would be for the really bright rooms and sunny outdoor conditions.
@speirsoj01 thanks. I hadn’t thought about it before but seeing your mirror against a standard one is interesting. I’m guessing that’s light escaping from the back. I’m not an expert but it may not be possible to get it any brighter without losing the contrast of the writing?
Size wise that looks like it’s going to be a great mirror, same sort of size as I want to do my next one. Are you custom building a frame?
@Atheose thats exactly what i did. the problem is that the part where the monitor is is actually too bright, so it’d probably be better to put some white or light gray paper behind the parts that are not covered by monitor. But it’s not too bad and I don’t want to get the mirror off the wall and disassemble the whole thing again…
I have the following equipment with me
a 12 x 12 inch two way mirror (Vanity vision, 1/4inch thick)
a 13.1 x 8.2 inch screen
What’s the best way of going about this? I have a glass cutting tool and I am thinking of cutting the mirror down to 12 x 8.2 inches. But when it comes to the frame, I would need something that would fit a 13.1 by 8.2 inch screen. I don’t have access to too many hardware tools so making a custom frame is going to be difficult if I want to fit the 13.1x8.2inch screen. For those who made pretty looking frameless mirrors, how did you guys do it? Or basically how did you make it mountable on a wall?
The other option would be for me to get a 12x12inch shadow box that can fit the mirror easily, and buy a smaller screen like this
which is a 9 x 5.8 inch screen and I can fit everything inside the box.
