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 firstname.lastname@example.org: 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 repository field. npm WARN modules No README data npm WARN modules No license field. removed 1 package in 1.439s found 0 vulnerabilities
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 ?
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
