newbie ... can't make magicmirror boot on startup
from the /home/pi folder I can run my mm.sh file without issue and get a magic mirror display working. Huzzah.
when I follow these instructions magic mirror won’t auto boot…
- Rpi B+
- running latest version of raspbian buster
- VNC enabled
- pm2 version: npm -v 6.14.4
- electron installed manually as per guide
the pi keeps booting to desktop.
@dawnwiener run the fixuppm2 script from here
read the readme for the command to issue.
(if u had used the automated installer, also from this site, it would have done this for you)
pm2 version: npm -v 6.14.4
PM2 is a program that is installed via NPM. You have reported the NPM version, not the PM2 version.
NPM is the Node Package Manager. It’s responsible for installing and configuring applications. PM2 is a process manager. It’s responsible for monitoring your Magic Mirror application and auto-starting it when your mirror boots.
@bhepler Many thanks for your clarification… been playing with pm2 status and a few other bits and pieces… I’m learning! Great!
@sdetweil Thank you ever so much… I should have used the automated installer and will do so next time. This script fixed things right up.
