    @Chrisflex Have you looked into the log file? Should be more specific. Maybe a permission problem?

    @Chrisflex YOu seem to be in the wrong directory.
    when you type in npm start, npm is looking for a package.json file in the directory you are running it.
    When there is no package.json, npm does not know what to do.



  • thanks how do I access that directory?


  • Module Developer

    @Chrisflex
    Well… What have you done until now?
    Have you installed MagicMirror on your dellserver?
    Where have you done the git clone command?
    You need to enter that directory before doing npm start

    cd MagicMirror
    npm start
    

    Maybe have a look at the documentation again?

  • thanks I have used this since I am trying to do this on a Windows PC.

    https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/4089/complete-walkthrough-install-magicmirror-on-a-pc-windows-7-10

    It is installed on my Dell Server.

    I have not done git clone yet

    It asks that I clone a repository

    Not sure which depository it wants me to clone and how do I point it to that repository.

    C:\Users\Dell Server\

  • Got this now I read somewhere that this is what needs to change for the display to work.

    `DISPLAY="${DISPLAY:=:0}" ./node_modules/.bin/electron js/electron.js

    needs to be removed, I just can’t remember where to access this setting.

    $ npm start

    magicmirror@2.11.0 start C:\Users\Dell Server\MagicMirror
    DISPLAY="${DISPLAY:=:0}" ./node_modules/.bin/electron js/electron.js

    ‘DISPLAY’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
