  • I’ve got exactly the same problem …
    Anybody got any idea’s ?

    I’ve googled it there seems a few people with the problem but no answers
    Any help would be appreciated.



  • Did you tried “npm install electron”?



  • Tajno - just tried that now - got this message

    npm WARN grunt-yamllint@0.2.0 requires a peer of grunt@~0.4.0 but none was installed.

    No idea what means …

    and when I tried to start magic mirror got this :

    magicmirror@2.0.0 start /home/pi/MagicMirror
    electron js/electron.js

    Thanks for your suggestions - got any more idea’s ? as I’d really like to this working



  • Sounds that now grunt is not installed…

    Try:
    npm install -g grunt
    after them again npm install -g electron

    Btw. how did you install the mirror? By yourself or with the suggested curl command?



  • @tajno ,

    Had the same problem.
    Installed and reinstalled several times, manually and with the automated script.

    It looked to me it was a problem installing grunt and electron.
    I had to install them with sudo.
    Still did not work, but when I renamed the magicmirror folder and “reinstalled” magicmirror using curl command with sudo, it worked.
    Some privileges problem maybe somewhere?
