MagicMirror on Dual Screen
I am building a MagicMirror on Pi4. And since it has 2 hdmi out ports and I have a few monitors lying around, thought it will be a good idea to build a 3 feet x 2 feet mirror with two screens. Its in early phase right now as I am still configuring it. I am using two monitors in extended mode (not duplicating it).
How can I run magic mirror on both screens. I have created two instances of magicmirror in two folders, mm1 and mm2. I can run each of them successfully but they run on the same monitor only.
I need to run mm1 instance on monitor 1 and mm2 instance on monitor 2. Please guide. Thanks…
This is something you would have to add to the electron logic. Something like this https://github.com/electron/electron/issues/4877
@geek_kaushal in one config.js add
where ??? is the width of the screen, to put that mm on the second screen
on my Pi4
once you have one of the electron instances up and selected use the shortcut key (super (windows key) + shift + [left, right, up, down]) to move it to a difference screen. this works on most linux distros but not sure if this would work on rasbian. if this doesn’t work i’ll write a script.
@Cpaczek Looks Promising, I will give it a go in a few hours and post results here.
@geek_kaushal did u test it?
