installation without ssh
i’m currently (trying) installing magicmirror onto my pi but i can’t ssh into it (keeps timing out) so i’m trying to download and install directly from the pi interface(correct term?) itself.
i’m following this guide-https://www.magicmirrorcentral.com/complete-raspberry-pi-magic-mirror-tutorial/
and i’m skipping step 5,when i type thisi nto the pi-bash -c "$(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/master/installers/raspberry.sh)"nothing happens,i just get another line that says pi@mirror:~ $,any ideas what i’m doing wrong?
@mrdenmark what kind of pi? how is it connected to your network? (You have to manually set it up the first time, unless you are wire connected)
also, I recommend you use my updated installer
which resolves a lot of install problems, creates a log,
we are testing it, and once ready I will submit it to replace the current one
its a pi 2b,connected via wifi,ssh enabled,i’ll try tour installer once i get home from work
@mrdenmark hm… i install over ssh all the time on every platform
Yep,has always worked for me in the past but it keeps timing out when I try.i can ping the pi no problem.it must be possible to install directly on the pi though without ssh?
@mrdenmark you have to configure to start the ssh server manually… it is off by default
if on the UI, ctrl-alt-t to open terminal window
The GUI isn’t installed,just the black screen with green writing,on that screen it says ssh is enabled,is that not correct?
@mrdenmark I have never installed OS not gui mode…
u need the gui, unless u are gonna run serveronly mode and access from a remote machine
can u tell me output of uname -m?
