MMM-RemoteCompliments does not appear



  • Hi everyone I hope someone can help me out with this.
    I’m a newbie on the raspberri pi, and I tried to install MMM-RemoteCompliments as my first module.
    I followed the instructions, setup was a success, put the module code in my config.js, but when I start my MagicMirror the module does not show up, not even the header. I’ve tried moving it around, but it’s nowhere to be seen.
    I’ve checked my code, I even copy pasted it directly from the instructions to make sure I didn’t make a typo.
    The only thing I can think of is that I accidentally first installed the module in the wrong folder, and it might be an interference? I can’t get it removed though for some reason, so I can’t check if that’s the problem.

    Any help would be great!

    @justtrying - Are any of the other modules appearing? The clock, for example?

    The easiest way to check for errors is to check the logs. If you’re using PM2 to auto-start your mirror, then you can just enter pm2 log 0 and look for messages that contain “error”.

    If you don’t see anything there, you can check the front-end logs by stopping your mirror (pm2 stop 0, changing to the install directory (cd /home/pi/MagicMirror) and displaying the developer console: npm start dev. That will show you any errors that may be preventing your module from displaying.

    Let’s check on where you did install it. Get a terminal connection to your Pi (SSH into it, open a terminal on the pi itself, whatever). Once there, type ls /home/pi/MagicMirror/modules and see if the module is among the results. If it is not present, then you’ll have to clone it into the proper location.

    To do so, it’s just a handful of commands. Do this as the pi user, do not do this as root. One at a time:

    • change to the proper directory: cd /home/pi/MagicMirror/modules
    • clone the module from GitHub: git clone https://github.com/mitchelltmarino/MMM-RemoteCompliments.git
    • restart your mirror process: pm2 restart all

    Give these a try and report back. Remember to use the markdown features of the forum!



  • @bhepler this module may/should fail as it depends on the googleapis library but unlikely it is installed…

    the module does not provide a package.json file (as it should) , but does document it

    Download dependencies
        Open the console and enter npm install googleapis
              This will install the Google APIs service. (Working as of googleapis@33.0.0)
    

  • Project Sponsor

    @sdetweil Good point. It really should specify the google API as a dependency and tell you to install the module with npm.



  • @bhepler it does, that is the text of the instructions

    really it should have a package.json, which documents all these and makes it so the user doesn’t have to read and type

    ok so when I put in npm install googleapis

    I checked the location as instructed, and it showed that the installed modules were default en MMM-RemoteCompliments, so it is in the correct spot.

    I checked the log, and I get the following error message:

  • @justtrying said in MMM-RemoteCompliments does not appear:

    /home/pi/node_modules

    but it looks like you are not in the MM folder or the module folder where u need to install this

    looks like you are in the users home folder (/home/pi)

    for a module, you should be in

    /home/pi/MagicMirror/modules/???modulename???



  • @sdetweil
    I tried to do as you said, so changed it to MMM-RemoteCompliments, and got this:

    pi@RideorDie:~/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-RemoteCompliments $ npm install googleapis

    Still no remote compliments showing up sadly. I’m thinking about rebooting the entire thing and reinstalling MM.



  • @justtrying I haven’t used that. module. but maybe it has the same problem as remote control.
    .see this topic
    https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/12485/has-anyone-got-mmm-remote-control-working-on-mm-2-11/10?_=1593613231689

    you have to restore one file back to 2.10 level. copy paste/replace file contents



  • @sdetweil Followed these instructions, still no module appearing. It really sucks, I tried reinstalling everything, followed every instruction to a T (even though the setup instructions are outdated), but it just doesn’t work.
