All image based modules only show tiny icon instead of image.



  • Hi. I’ve just installed MagicMirror on a Pi4. I’ve tried MMM-ImagesPhotos, MMM-BackgroundSlideshow & MMM-ImageSlideshow and all 3 modules when run only show a small icon instead of images. I’ve tried pointing MMM-ImageSlideshow at the example images folder & it does the same thing. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

    This applies to MMM-ImageSlideshow:

    My guess is this:

    1. The example config entry doesn’t show a closing comma after the last curly bracket.
    2. The imagePaths config option (in the example) is faulty (somewhat) . The array should read ['modules/MMM-ImageSlideshow/exampleImages'] in order for the module to work when cloned. You can verify this by looking at the repo for the module. A valid, but not complete, config entry follows. See the readme in the repo for all options:
    {
    module: 'MMM-ImageSlideshow',
    position: 'middle center',
    config: {
        imagePaths: ['modules/MMM-ImageSlideshow/exampleImages'],
        slideshowSpeed: 6000,
        fixedImageWidth: 250,
        fixedImageHeight: 250,
        randomizeImageOrder: true,
    		}
    	},
    


  • @Mykle1 I’ve got it working now. I checked the syntax & compared it to your example, but I also originally had the imagePath connected to mnt/images. I changed the share to …/MMM-ImageSlideshow/Images and now it works fine. Thanks again.
