Npm start...



  • I set up the mirror on unbuntu 14.04 and when I type in npm start
    it gets as far as this:

    Starting MagicMirror: v2.1.0
    Loading config ...
    Loading module helpers ...
    No helper found for module: alert.
    Initializing new module helper ...

    Create new news fetcher for url: http://www.nytimes.com/services/xml/rss/nyt/HomePage.xml - Interval: 300000
    

    Then just sits there … doesn’t load the mirror. Has anyone had this issue and if so how does one fix that? :)

    I don’t know what is going on there, but I have Ubuntu Desktop 16.04 (I think) at home and will give it a shot.

    Did you use manual install or script from the repo?



  • @morozgrafix I manually installed it… because I got an error about not having a pi LOL
    I’m not using a pi for this… this is a mini-itx :)

    Looks like it’s loading it fine just not showing up…

    this doesn’t really help you, but this guy has the same issue on a PI :

    @cowboysdude I will try to reproduce on my machine in a few hours when I get home and will report back.

    @cowboysdude I managed to get it up and running locally on a super old system running Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS. I had some trouble starting electron via SSH when running DISPLAY=:0 npm start, but npm start worked just fine

    Here is a list of steps that got it running (i’m running node v6.9.4 and npm v4.1.1):

    sudo apt-get install git
    git clone https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror.git
    curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo -E bash -
    sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
    node --version
    curl -sL https://www.npmjs.com/install.sh | sudo -E bash -
    npm --version
    cd MagicMirror/
    cp config/config.js.sample config/config.js
    npm install
    npm start
    

    Not sure if this will help. You can always try to run verbose mode npm start --verbose to see if there is any information that may lead you to finding a reason why it doesn’t start. It was very sluggish on my system, but this is a very old computer.

    P.S. Sorry it took me a while to get to try it out and get back to you. It has been a very long and exhausting day.

    Good luck.



  • @morozgrafix Thank you so much for this. I finally got it up and running following your method.
    I did it on a Raspberry pi 3 and after adding in a few more sudo’s it worked!

    sudo apt-get install git
    sudo git clone https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror.git
    sudo curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo -E bash -
    sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
    node --version
    sudp curl -sL https://www.npmjs.com/install.sh | sudo -E bash -
    npm --version
    cd MagicMirror/
    sudo cp config/config.js.sample config/config.js
    sudo npm install
    npm start
    


  • @morozgrafix Thank you!! Going to have one coffee then try it LOL

    No need to apologize I know how you feel… Long days will do that :)

    I appreciate the help!!!
