MagicMirror² v2.12.0 is available! For more information about this release, check out this topic.

updated installer script available for testing

  • @sdetweil this installer script is now the script in 2.10…

    I will close/lock this topic in a couple days

  • Should I install electron with --arch=armv7l ?

  • @jorgnyg Yea guess so. Installation fails on rpi zero. So I deleted the electron folder from node_modules, and ran npm install --arch=armv7l electron@3.0.13

  • @jorgnyg doesn’t fail on my pi 0.

    Can u send me the install.log

  • @sdetweil note that we made electron optional. There is no armv6l at node 10
    So we will run in split mode use chromium

  • @sdetweil sure thing. Guess this is the most relevant error

  • @jorgnyg the script now handles this problem and launches chromium instead of electron to connect to mm in serveronly mode

  • @sdetweil got it!

  • Hi - firstly thanks for putting together this installer!

    I am running Raspbian on RP3b+ as a fresh install using the command

    curl -sL | bash

    Installer indicated successful install of MagicMirror.

    Using SSH DISPLAY=:0 npm start gives the following error:

    Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot? Many thanks.

    Mm requires the full desktop.
