UNSOLVED PI Zero module issues for this beginner
After a year of on and off trying to get a MM to work on a PI I figured it out and even changed the stock modules to work for me. I have to do everything from the command line. I have no desktop. I found a direct load and go at
I downloaded the image and started it up.
- I cant figure out how to see what modules I currently have loaded? (what is the command line script?
- I loaded My-Commute followed all of the 3rd party direction. when I went into the config.js I had to manually add the configuration I found on the My-commute page so is that normal to have to enter in configuration to the config.js? when I started up the mirror it showed the default walking, flying, driving with an error at the end. So how to I edit the actual modular configuration information from the command line?
any help would be great. I will attempt to get code for you tomorrow when im not at work.
@wagon40 you should use my installation script… it does it all…
see here https://github.com/sdetweil/MagicMirror_scripts/blob/master/run-start.sh
use the desktop version of the pi 0… stretch or buster… jessie is too old
what is installed is folders in ~/MagicMirror/modules
what is being used , see the ~/MagicMirror/config/config.js, and each module: statement
where disabled is not specified or disabled: false
nano is the commandline editor
ctrl-o to save the file
ctrl-x to exit
ctrl-w to search the file
I had to manually add the configuration I found on the My-commute page so is that normal to have to enter in configuration to the config.js?
yes. u install the code, then have to update the MM config to actually use it
@sdetweil thank you for the quick reply. I will try your download tomorrow if I get a chance and hopefully have better luck.
@wagon40 to install MM again, you will need to rename the current folder out of the way
cd ~ mv MagicMirror MagicMirror.save
can you send me the direct script to place in the command line to load your script? I have tried a few bash $( bala bal bal) and im not getting much luck.
I tried to follow this https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/9386/installing-on-a-pi-zero/72
but of course it wont start. screen goes to sleep and it only starts for a minute then goes to desktop.
I installed buster with desktop.
@wagon40 from the page I referenced
bash -c "$(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sdetweil/MagicMirror_scripts/master/raspberry.sh)"
you can do that over ssh, or on the pi monitor terminal session
it will prompt you about autostart with pm2 and turning off screensaver
all was going well until the dependencies stopped it. tired to send the code using </> or :: but it blanks out the submit button?

@wagon40 hm… I don’t see that on my pi 0…
And electron is optional, so there should be no need for chrome driver
Same issue I had with the other download. any suggestion?
