mmm assistant mk2

  • @Bugsounet


    First of all, thank you for not stopping your work on this module which is of high quality.

    I tried to install the new assistant. I followed the wiki. However, I have a problem.
    Indeed, when the mirror is launched, I find myself with the following message:

    [2020-06-01 14:04:54.256] [LOG]    [ASSISTANT][ERROR] token.json file not found 

    However, I followed the WIKI well and applied the following command:

    (env) pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-GoogleAssistant $ ACCESSTOKEN=ya29.a0AfH6SMABBPj590X_itMQG616F8QpxddhPVuSXCE4qvZs6znHKbG2n5RggszFMdl0V5HP0lf956H9O7VHlbuGuMxSzkU3pMkdbpFxs485NwfXYl9T7hfLzB0EOPlRTwcifZW-8rIUlZlWXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    Do you have any idea about this problem?

    Thanking you in advance,


  • @dvbit try this:
    launch it in root directly in RPI terminal (not ssh)

    cd ~/MagicMirror
    sudo ./node_modules/.bin/electron js/electron.js --no-sandbox

    give me result

  • @chris: token.json file must be located in ~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-GoogleAssistant/token.json

  • @Bugsounet u can also run the fixsandbox script from my repo

    if they use my installer I fix it… otherwise they either need the --nosandbox or run my script

  • sam, i suspect a bug in electron

    chown root and chmod 4755 ?

  • @Bugsounet yes, what my script does…

    not a bug, new feature

  • yes but i don’t understand why … with pulseaudio there is no sound but with root it’s works …

    There is a permission missing somewhere

  • @Bugsounet sorry, got no idea what the side effects are…

    they wanted some additional security

    are u launching a player as a background task, or playing direct to the device? if the latter then u get all the security crap

  • sam:

    in RPI4: it’s works

    pi@Raspberry:~/MagicMirror/node_modules/electron/dist $ ls -la
    total 107516
    drwxr-xr-x 4 pi   pi     4096 mai   20 15:23 .

    -rwsr-xr-x 1 root pi  4204060 mai   20 15:23 chrome-sandbox

    i have no idea if @dvbit it’s the same

    Note: this Issue take me head since 6 month

  • @Bugsounet yes, added in V6 of electron (and chrome 45 I think?) we are running 6.1.7
