  • @thedoorsfanatic Snowboy can be tricky, but @sean has made some good troubleshooting guides on the page for MMM-Hotword. But you can delete the MMM-Hotword folder and try to re-install it following these instructions to do it quite manually. If it fails, you at least will get a clear picture of where it actually failed:

    cd ~/MagicMirror/modules/
    sudo apt-get install libmagic-dev libatlas-base-dev sox libsox-fmt-all
    git clone https://github.com/eouia/MMM-Hotword.git
    cd MMM-Hotword
    npm install
    
    cd ~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Hotword/node_modules/snowboy
    npm install --save-dev electron-rebuild
    npm install nan
    ./node_modules/.bin/electron-rebuild

  • @ejay-ibm, @THeStigh i have installed MMM-Hotword. I hope correctly? as i got only warning via npm like

    npm WARN MMM-Hotword@1.1.0 No repository field.
    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Hotword $ npm install --save snowboy
    npm WARN deprecated cryptiles@2.0.5: This version is no longer maintained. Please upgrade to the latest version.
    npm WARN deprecated boom@2.10.1: This version is no longer maintained. Please upgrade to the latest version.
    npm WARN deprecated hoek@2.16.3: This version is no longer maintained. Please upgrade to the latest version.
    npm WARN MMM-Hotword@1.1.0 No repository field.
    

    I am not sure how i can test it tho?
    Or there is nothing to expect with only MMM-hotword installed?
    (sorry if my question is stupid 🙂 )



  • @bibi start mirror in dev mode

    npm start dev
    

    Select the console tab in the developers window

    You should see MMM-Hotword sending notifications of the words it recognizes

    @bibi

    npm WARN MMM-Hotword@1.1.0 No repository field.
    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Hotword $ npm install --save snowboy

    You can ignore some WARN unless your program is working.



  • @ejay-ibm, i wanted to follow your good practice and update MM to latest (ok) and OS to stretch (ok) but now it pm2 won’t start MM automatically as it did in the past… would kindly help me to solve this issue before i can install mk2?
    thx alot for any help as well

  • @Mykle1, thx for your post. It appears that when i want to check npm version, the system issues :

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ npm -v
    -bash: npm: command not found
    

    Therefore something went wrong during the system upgrade to stretch.
    If i am not wrong npm comes along with nodejs which i have current version

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ nodejs -v
    v8.11.1
    

    I think i would just install it again but i don’t know if I should do it from /home/pi or from inside /home/pi/MagicMirror ?

    sudo apt-get remove nodered -y
    sudo apt-get remove nodejs nodejs-legacy -y
    sudo apt-get remove npm -y
    sudo curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo bash -
    sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
    node -v
    npm -v
