starter problem # 2

  • Hi
    ( I guess I put the Raspberry too quick away from the electricity, which caused a total colapse of the Raspberry- so all you newbies like me, beware of that step!).
    I open this new topic, because after the new installation of the MM I get this message below and this has nothing to do with the problems in my older topic.
    Also tried to google a solution for the npm bugs magicmirror, but couldn’t find a right solution for me.
    I just installed MM and only changed the url in the newsfeed and the weather destination in the config.js
    So I hope someone here can help me to do the next step.

    Thanks a lot

    Did you do npm install in your ~/MagicMirror folder?

  • @tosti007
    No, I just followed the complete setup tutorial by KirAsh4
    so do I have to install it?
    Thank you

  • @tosti007
    That’s what I got

    pi@raspi:~ $ cd ~/MagicMirror
    pi@raspi:~/MagicMirror $ npm install
    npm WARN grunt-yamllint@0.2.0 requires a peer of grunt@~0.4.0 but none was installed.

    @kurt are you running raspbian jessie or Jessie lite?

    If you are running regular jessie with graphical interface then I believe you need to run npm start in the terminal. DISPLAY=:0 npm start is used when you are connected over SSH from remote system, if I’m not mistaken.

    If you are running jessie lite then make sure you have minimal X window GUI installed. Full guide is here

  • @morozgrafix
    Thanks for the help
    The for me funny thing is, if I do it with SSH and the DISPLAY=:0 npm startthe MM starts (exept the rss fees and the amer. calender…both loading), but when I try to start it from the Raspberry with the npm start I get some error messages.
    When I reboot,the MM routine starts but does not finish and i’m back in The PIXEL surface.
    Do you think I should try the Auto Starting Mirror tool?
    Any ideas?

    @kurt said in starter problem # 2:

    from the Raspberry with the npm start I get some error messages.

    What error messages are you getting when you running npm start from the RasPi terminal? (I’m assuming that you still have PIXEL loaded at that time)

    I would hold off on auto starting for now, until you can start it cleanly from the shell.

  • @morozgrafix
    hey by now the MM startet without error massages! kind of strange, but I get used to it.
    Then I copied the confi.js file to send it to you, maybe you can find a mistake.
    But after that all of my MM folder is gone ! this what happened to me 3 days ago.
    Can#t believe, but that’s how it is . everything gone.
    I can only blame FileZilla for that. Iguess I have to go to the Install routine for the third time. and I’m thru with Filzilla…
    What do you think about it? can I restore something? I searched in all folders but coudn’t find anything.
    Man I expected a hard way to go, but this is boring. What to do?
    Thanks for waiting

  • @morozgrafix
