Hello-Lucy installation troubles



  • Hello MMM community!

    Hope you can help me out:
    As already mentioned on GitHub, I am having some problems during Lucy installation. The problems rely one on the fact that some npm packages are missing and had to install manually. The second is that Lucy does not recognize my microphone, even if the pi does (alsamixer finds the card and the mic can record). I set the card as in the readme: 0,0 is the card and the device.
    No clue why this happens, why both the things happen actually.

    I also asked the holo to Mykle1, so I have a question for him: I saw you put the MM on a Windows machine. Is the AI model developed by HackeShackOfficial? I wanted the holo to make the mirror more smart, but I saw they installed it on a Mac based machine, not raspi.
    Do you think it could be set for a raspi?

    Thanks for the help, any help is much appreciated!!!

    Ok, and thanks for bringing your issue here. It’s just easier to troubleshoot here than github.

    After installation, did you cd Hello-Lucy/installers and then run bash dependencies.sh in your terminal? You should not have to install any dependencies manually after that.

    Lucy does not recognize my microphone

    Did you follow the directions here?
    https://github.com/mykle1/Hello-Lucy/blob/master/piAudioSetup.md

    Please run this command in your terminal. arecord -ls and post the result here (in a code block).

    I saw you put the MM on a Windows machine

    All my machines are running Ubuntu

    Lucy (the holo) is an animated gif file. It doesn’t matter what platform you are running MagicMirror on. It will work. I will supply you with the gif but I have to warn you. A Pi will struggle to run that gif smoothly, if at all, and it will certainly be to the detriment of the Pi’s performance and almost certainly create a heat issue. You will already experience some lag just running Hello-Lucy on a Pi. However, the choice is yours.



  • Hi Mykle!
    First, thank you for the response! Second, I just reinstalled Lucy and the whole MM from the beginning. I still get an error while launching MM with Lucy, the pocket sphinx-continuous module is missing. I tried to install it via npm, but nothing. I do not know if I need to install it in a specific directory, like the Hello-Lucy one, or not.

    For the microphone let’s see because I made a change, but until the module starts I cannot see if it is working or not.

    What do you suggest to do now? I follow the guide, step by step, I really do not know what is missing right now.
    Many thanks and have a nice day!



  • @SSkull995 pocketsphinx is installed by the installers/dependencies.sh script

    YOU have to run that manually, as the readme says



  • @sdetweil hey man, as I wrote I already ran the dependencies.sh in the installer directory. I have the log, everything went fine.
    Still don’t have the module in the system



  • @sdetweil So I just ran again the installer, weird thing happens. I don’t know why, the package.json is not present in the directory. So this message comes up:
    npm WARN saveError ENOENT: no such file or directory, open ‘/root/pocketsphinx/package.json’
    npm WARN enoent ENOENT: no such file or directory, open ‘/root/pocketsphinx/package.json’
    npm WARN pocketsphinx No description
    npm WARN pocketsphinx No repository field.
    npm WARN pocketsphinx No README data
    npm WARN pocketsphinx No license field.

    That is why I don’t have it installed! Should I generate a random package.json with the npm init command?



  • @sdetweil
    This is the output error when I run npm start. I generated the config.json with the npm init, no more errors during dependencies installation.

    Why no directory in root? Many thanks and sorry!



  • @SSkull995 you have to

    cd ~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Hello-Lucy/installers
    ./dependencies.sh
    


  • AND NOT sudo
    And logged on as normal user, not root



  • @sdetweil man, I never ran sudo.
    And I still don’t know why the program gives me the error about the config.json file and the dependencies.sh
    Btw, ./dependencies is no command
