snowboy Install Failure



  • I’m trying to set up Google Assistant with hotword detection.
    I’ve follow the tutorials on Github, but when I try to install snowboy I’m getting the output below.
    I am running the latest Raspian build on a Pi 3. I’ve uninstalled and tried multiple times to install, I’ve even blown away the whole OS and Magic Mirror install and started from scratch.

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Hotword $ ./installer/install.sh

    means you completed installation finally.



  • Ah Ok, I guess I assumed the errors were bad.

    So then I guess my next question is, why would Hotword detection not work? I’ve enabled it in the config.js and I get the Google Assistant icon at the bottom of my screen, but no hotword icon, and saying any of the built in hotwords doesn’t seem to do anything.

    I’ve done test recordings from command line and the microphone is picking up audio, but just no dice on getting the mirror to respond to voice commands.


  • Module Developer

    @binaryhellstorm
    First, you’d better check Hotword standalone without other modules in config.js (to make things simple)
    Backup your current config.js and make a new one, which has only MMM-Hotword and other modules be removed.
    Then try to execute and see the log (It is convenient to use npm start dev instead pm2), If there is some issue, it will be logged.
    Then show me your config.



  • Ok, here’s the bog standard config with just the hotword module loaded, still don’t get an icon for it.
    I am noticing that in the terminal window there is a
    [HOTWORD] No model to load

    Even though there are models in the directory
    /home/pi/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Hotword/models
    as well as
    /home/pi/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Hotword/snoboy/resources/models

    /* Magic Mirror Config Sample

    var config = {
    address: “localhost”, // Address to listen on, can be:
    // - “localhost”, “127.0.0.1”, “::1” to listen on loopback interface
    // - another specific IPv4/6 to listen on a specific interface
    // - “”, “0.0.0.0”, “::” to listen on any interface
    // Default, when address config is left out, is “localhost”
    port: 8080,
    ipWhitelist: [“127.0.0.1”, “::ffff:127.0.0.1”, “::1”], // Set [] to allow all IP addresses

    @binaryhellstorm
    You haven’t described “models” in your configuration.
    https://github.com/eouia/MMM-Hotword/blob/master/documents/config.md



  • Awesome! That was it, thanks so much for the help.



  • @binaryhellstorm After fixing this error, Does your magic mirror in snowboy,hotword is work on Google Ai?



  • The hotword detection is working and it’s passing it to the Google Assistant module and that module is working too



  • @binaryhellstorm Can you show me the modified config file or e-mail it to me?
