NPM install error



  • I followed the manual install walk through.

    cd ~/MagicMirror
    npm install
    

    Now I’m getting an electron error. How do I troubleshoot this?

     electron@1.4.15 postinstall /home/pi/MagicMirror/node_modules/electron
     node install.js
    
    npm WARN This failure might be due to the use of legacy binary "node"

  • I would delete it and start over… something didn’t take… Are you installing it manually?

    npm ERR! node -v v0.10.29
    npm ERR! npm -v 1.4.21
    

    Those look like very old versions of npm and node. Can you please run following commands in your terminal and post output?

    node --version
    

    and

    npm --version
    

    Thanks.

  • @morozgrafix Thank you morozgrafix. I discovered that the node instructions i found were wayyy old.

    I’ve updated it but ran into new problems. ha! Thanks everyone!

    Honestly the problems may be all the mixing that has happened. I would just start over with the new instructions ;)
