Display turned black after I installed MMM-DigClock



  • I installed the MagicMirror recently and tried the MMM-BackgroundSlideshow. Everything worked perfectly. But then I wanted use the MMM-DigClock but then nothing worked. The display just turned black and I can see the mouse on the top left corner. I assume that it could not install correctly, because I got this after the installation of MMM-DigClock:

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-DigClock $ npm install
    npm WARN deprecated undefined@0.1.0: this package has been deprecated
    npm WARN saveError ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/home/pi/MagicMirror        /modules/package.json'
    npm notice created a lockfile as package-lock.json. You should commit this file.
    npm WARN enoent ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/home/pi/MagicMirror/mo        dules/package.json'
    npm WARN modules No description

    npm WARN modules No README data
    npm WARN modules No license field.
    
    removed 1 package in 1.439s

    How can I solve this problem?



  • @SirVer do this

    cd ~/MagicMirror
    git checkout modules/node_modules/node_help/index.js
    

    this was because MMM-DigClock does not have a package.json file, and u should not have done npm install for it



  • @sdetweil Thanks for the answer but I get this:

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ git checkout modules/node_modules/node_help/index.js
    error: pathspec 'modules/node_modules/node_help/index.js' did not match any file(s) known to git
    


  • @SirVer sorry, typo (left off the ‘er’ on node_helper)

    cd ~/MagicMirror
    git checkout modules/node_modules/node_helper/index.js
    


  • @sdetweil I have a question: I thought git checkout is just changing the branch. So what is the command here git checkout … doing in index.js ?


  • Module Developer

    it’s much more than that.

  • @SirVer checkout can switch branches, it can also get a file from the local repository into your local working directory
