NPM start, starts but with blank screen



  • Hi there,
    I just started up my Mirror and i’ve setup a sh file to automaticly start it, it started but it was a blank screen. I then went into terminal and manually started it and it produced the following error. Please help! Another thing is that my Pi keeps changing its IP address how do i fix that?

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ npm start

    magicmirror@2.13.0 start /home/pi/MagicMirror
    DISPLAY="${DISPLAY:=:0}" ./node_modules/.bin/electron js/electron.js

  • @natebrown when did you install 2.13?

    did u do the required npm install to update the dependencies?

    node-ical is new in 2.13

    cd ~/MagicMirror
    npm install



  • @sdetweil said in NPM start, starts but with blank screen:

    cd ~/MagicMirror
    npm install

    I updated 2 weeks ago i think, i’ve just updated it again.
    i did

    git pull && npm install



  • @sdetweil

    What about this part:

    [2020-10-18 12:12:44.535] [ERROR] MagicMirror will not quit, but it might be a good idea to check why this happened. Maybe no internet connection?
    [2020-10-18 12:12:44.538] [ERROR] If you think this really is an issue, please open an issue on GitHub: https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/issues

  • @natebrown and this one:

    [2020-10-18 12:12:43.003] [ERROR] (node:25630) [DEP0005] DeprecationWarning: Buffer() is deprecated due to security and usability issues. Please use the Buffer.alloc(), Buffer.allocUnsafe(), or Buffer.from() methods instead.



  • @natebrown said in NPM start, starts but with blank screen:

    DeprecationWarning:

    just a warning that some code (not ours) is using a library call that is going away sometime in the future



  • @sdetweil Thanks, also when i start up my Pi, it shows the “Raspberry Pi OS” Screen and I want it to be just black and how do I speed up autostart (I use sh).



  • @natebrown if u had used the scripted install, it would have asked if u want to use the node process manager, pm to start at boot

    u can add it, see command for fixuppm2 here

    https://github.com/sdetweil/MagicMirror_scripts

    speed up? no idea
