MMM-EasyBack / Nothing to display ..



  • Good afternoon

    First , thanks to the all of you for this excellent project and community .

    I’ve been working on my MagicMIrror so i can make a gift for a friend …

    And everything went smoothly until this road block …

    I wanted to install MMM-EasyBack so i can i have a background…

    and it just can’t make it work. Nothing is displayed …i have tried an image, a video…nothing

    I have read and follow the installation file and make everything i should do …

    until this part:

    "Fix for use with Chromium Browser
    Thanks to sdetweil and Darkmx-6
    I edited the file chromium_start.sh found here:

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ls
    chromium_start.sh MagicMirror mmstart.sh node-v10.16.0-linux-armv6l package-lock.json
    and added
    –autoplay-policy=no-user-gesture-required

    Example:

    GNU nano 3.2 chromium_start.sh

    #!/bin/sh
    unclutter &
    xset -dpms # disable DPMS (Energy Star) features.
    xset s off # disable screen saver
    xset s noblank # don’t blank the video device
    matchbox-window-manager &
    #midori -e Fullscreen -a http://localhost:8080
    chromium-browser --autoplay-policy=no-user-gesture-required --incognito --kiosk http://localhost:8080/"

    i just cannot edit the chromium_start_sh file …because i cant find it …

    Is there anyone that can help me please.

    THanks

    Best Regards

    before u go down that path,

    open the developers window ctrl-shift-i on the keyboard, then select the console tab and scroll up to see any errors.

    you shouldn’t need to run the chromium browser.

    did u try the default backgrounds?
