Problems loading config resources



  • Not very good with software so bear with me here. The issue I’m having comes after I’ve installed MagicMirror when I go to run the program; I’m met with a black screen. When I npm start dev I can see in the console that the config file has several errors:
    “Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (not found)”,
    “Refused to apply style from ‘’ because its MIME type (‘text/html’) is not a supported stylesheet MIME type, and strict MIME checking is enabled.”,
    “error on loading stylesheet: vendor/css/font-awesome.css”.
    etc.

    There are are about 15 of these errors and I have no clue how to troubleshoot this. I have already tried removing the MagicMirror folder completely and reinstalling from scratch. I’m guessing the issue has to do with a problem in the config file. So I tried renaming config.js.sample to config.js, didn’t work. Also tried copying config.js.sample and renaming the copy, didn’t work. When I start the program with just the config.js.sample instead of being met with a black screen I am met with several lines of text that say “undefined”. Let me know if there is another way to give more information so I get to the bottom of this problem! I need this project done before Christmas because it’s a gift!
