starter problem # 2
( 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

No, I just followed the complete setup tutorial by KirAsh4
so do I have to install it?
That’s what I got

@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 startin the terminal.
DISPLAY=:0 npm startis 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 https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/wiki/Jessie-Lite-Installation-Guide
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 startI 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?
from the Raspberry with the npm start I get some error messages.
What error messages are you getting when you running
npm startfrom 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.
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
here that last try

Hey @kurt !, the last sentence you are run in your Mac not in your Raspberry
