How to go back to Pi homepage
Actually my friend has setup everything of magic mirror.
And i want to customize some modules.
But while connecting it through ssh, it shows connection failed error although pi and laptop both are connected with same network
Also i am unable to go to pi homepage so that i can update anything from terminal of MM.
Please help how can i give command to MM through SSH or directly on MM terminal.Thanks
will minimize the MM app window… (just like on windows to minimize an app)…
ssh server is not setup by default… so you would have to do that manually
Another option is
which should open a terminal window. From there you can install the OpenSSH server, stop the Magic mirror process (pm2 stop all
) or whatever.
@bhepler ctrl-alt-t won’t open a terminal window if MM is shown on the screen… that was his problem… he didn’t know how to get back to the desktop
@sdetweil - Sure it will. If he can’t SSH into the Pi due to “connection failed error”, he has to be connecting directly to it and using the mirror’s screen.
will give him a terminal on the pi and he can then shut down the Magic Mirror process. Now that I think about it, he can also just runsudo raspi-config
without shutting down the MM process, which should give him the option to install the SSH server.Now that I think about it, opening a terminal window may be hidden by the electron process. You can
to it, but it’s not something I included in my post. Hrm. I should do some experimenting.
@bhepler that’s why I said minimze the mm UI. Back to the desktop, then all works… Then put mm UI back on screen by selecting it from the Task bar or alt tab
