Black screen with cursor
Today I did some work on my mirror again.
I installed two modules and configured them.
With one I made the mistake of using “npm install” in the “Magic Mirror” folder.
However, everything went normally for the time being.
After further settings in the config and another restart, the screen remained black with a cursor in the upper corner.
I hope you can help me and all my work has not been in vain.
@Clubjack are u on version 2.13?
see the translation problem fix at the top of the troubleshooting section?
I think, i am on Version 2.1.3
Pm2 logs says : cannot find Module “node_helper”.
Could that be my problem?
@Clubjack show more of log please
I got it. Node_helper was replaced and it worked immediately. I’m so glad the work wasn’t in vain.
@Clubjack thanks for the feedback, but I’d like to understand what happened. I put a fix I a few releases ago to stop the node_helper.js file from being erased.
@sdetweil Maybe my last installed Module “destroyed” the file.
It was the MMM-WiFiPassword
@Clubjack and what did u do to get it back?
is this the ~/MagicMirror/js/node_helper.js
or the module node_helper.js
it was the Module Node_helper.
I did this:
git checkout modules/node_modules/node_helper/index.js
@Clubjack ok , you must be running an older version… we moved that in 2.10 to the MagicMirror/js folder to prevent the file being erased by an npm security cleanup feature
