    Ok, sorry, I have do some mismake on ReadMe and on recipe of with-Background.js

    it’s corrected 🙂



  • where does the new assistant show up? in the top left corner where the 4 google dots are?

    ive added the recipe with-BackgroundStatus.js to the GA List and theres been no changes?

    thanks


  • Module Developer

    The Background of the screen like that :

    • Before : (without GAB)

    GA.png

    • After: (With GAB)

    GAB.jpg



  • Hmmm, doesn’t seem to be working! should it just show up?

    i did not edit the with-BackgroundStatus file as i like the jarvis, i dont think im missing any steps!?

    thanks again

    1. do you have the default GA background without GBA recipe ?

      • blackscreen ?
        -> you use MMM-pages, so configure it correctly !
      • You have the GA default background perfect !
    2. If you have default background without GBA recipe :
      -> place your GAB recipe file in queue any recipes

    3. tell me result



  • Hmmm…

    without recipe i have black background. with recipe in queue, still black background.

    i didnt have GAB in MMM-pages and even with it in the fixed section of pages i still have black background


  • Module Developer

    and so? what can i do? I have to configure MMM-pages or MMM-Carousel ?
    explain me …

    i didnt have GAB in MMM-pages

    ??
    GAB is not a module, it’s just a recipe for GA … so there is no config in config.js…
    explain me why do you want fixed: [] GAB ?? only GA have a config…



  • if GAB is not a module then why do i need to config mmm-pages correctly?

    i have GA set to “fullscreen_above” and the “with-BackgroundStatus” in the recipe queue.

    i think GA is working like it should, however i dont see the google assistant & logo (like before pic below) i just see black where google logo is…

    do you see a MMM-GaBackground.js and node_helper.js there !? NO ! so it’s not a MODULE … installer copy 2 recipes in MMM-GoogleAssistant Directory !
    this 2 recipes redirect for playing gifs in each directory : sample for jarvis: there

    BUT ! I YOU DON’T have this picture WITHOUT MMM-GABackground

    IT’S MEANS MMM-GoogleAssistant is not correctly CONFIGURED with MMM-pages !
    Because YOU MUST have the background …

    And if you don’t have this background … YOU CAN’T USE MMM-GABackground !

    Correct your MMM-GoogleAssistant ISSUE FIRST !
    it’s the default background of MMM-GoogleAssistant !!!
    You can’t change a background to an hidden module

    Actually only MMM-GoogleAssistant popups is displayed (and no modules can prohibits it to display … because it’s a popup and don’t use config.js position of the module)
    so, The module is not displayed … the module is: THE BACKGROUND !
