MMM-awesome-alexa "WARNING! electron-v6.1-linux-arm/snowboy.node"

  • Hello everyone!!

    I spend lots of hours trying to solve this problem and i think i will need your help.

    I Installed the Magic Mirror on my Raspberry Pi 4 and it´s working normal.

    The problem is when I insert the Alexa module (MMM-awesome-alexa), and I start the Magic Mirror I only see a “Black Screen” with the cursor.

    I try to see what kind of problem I receive on terminal it shows like this:


    According this I try to see the file “snowboy.node” on /home/pi/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-awesome-alexa/node_modules/snowboy/lib/node/binding/Release/electron-v6.1-linux-arm/snowboy.node , but I don´t have the folder “electron-v6.1-linux-arm”.

    I have …/Release/node-v64-linux-arm, and is nothing inside.

    I see some one that had the same problem and recommend to use this command on the MMM-awesome-alexa directory:

    npm run electron-rebuild

    But I receive another error:

    I appreciate the help of all of you.

    Thanks fsdfsd

  • Module Developer

    sorry, i can’t help you more, because i have not this module installed

    just maybe by trying npm install in alexa module directory (without --only-prod because it’s deprecied)

    if don’t work, i don’t know because it’s very old source and maybe unmaintened

    I see you open an issue in github, just wait a response

  • I tried to use that command on alexa module and i received some errors:


    Ok i will wait for some more suggestions.

    Thanks Bugsounet for your help and if you have other suggestion I appreciate it!
