    Hi Kurt,

    before you run npm start you need to change into the right directory. Default would be

    cd MagicMirror
    npm install
    npm start
    

    The npm install command only needs to be run first time after you downloaded the MagicMirror package. If you have already done that you can skip this step.



  • @yawns
    Thank you for the immediate answer.

    Are you working on your raspberry? Or are you connected via ssh?
    If you are connected via ssh you need to run DISPLAY=:0 npm start instead to tell the raspberry to use the display connected to the raspberry instead of the not working ssh connection



  • I’m working via ssh, I can see the starter Logo, but thats’it
    ’’'
    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ DISPLAY=:0 npm start

    magicmirror@2.1.0 start /home/pi/MagicMirror

  • @kurt WARNING! Could not find config file. Please create one. Starting with default configuration.

    are you sure you renamed the file correctly?

    cd ~/MagicMirror/config
    ls
    

    if not then copy the sample again

    cp config.js.sample config.js
    


  • Thanks a lot once more!
    There was a point behind my “config.js” !
    I deletet that point and tryed again with
    DISPLAY=:0 npm start
    this is what happened:

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ DISPLAY=:0 npm start

  • @kurt you are in the wrong directory again cd ~/MagicMirror



  • I’m in the /home/pi/MagicMirror/config - file
    Is this the wrong one?
    and what does it mean “cd ~/Magic Mirror”



  • @kurt

    your logs show what you are not in /home/pi/MagicMirror/config with the terminal console

    if you type in that command you will be in the correct directory cd means change directory

    after that do DISPLAY=:0 npm start
