Black Screen on start up on Windows



  • I get this screen again on both PC’s I have tried to install on.

    Once before I had this problem the fix was to delete

    Problem is now I can’t seem to find the correct place where this instruction is

    Below is the message I get.

    C:\Users\Dell Server>cd MagicMirror

    C:\Users\Dell Server\MagicMirror>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.
    npm ERR! code ELIFECYCLE
    npm ERR! errno 1
    npm ERR! magicmirror@2.11.0 start: DISPLAY="${DISPLAY:=:0}" ./node_modules/.bin/electron js/electron.js
    npm ERR! Exit status 1
    npm ERR!
    npm ERR! Failed at the magicmirror@2.11.0 start script.
    npm ERR! This is probably not a problem with npm. There is likely additional logging output above.

    npm ERR! A complete log of this run can be found in:

    C:\Users\Dell Server\MagicMirror>



  • Finally found it

    It resides in package.json

    DISPLAY="${DISPLAY:=:0}

    Deleted the above

    " ./node_modules/.bin/electron js/electron.js"

    and it works
