White screen after MMM-Remote-Control update



  • I have run the update on the MMM-Remote-Control module, and now get a white screen when starting MagicMirror.
    If I // the lines on the MMM-Remote-Control module in the config.js the Mirror shows up normally. I have deleted and reinstalled the MMM-Remote-Control module but the problem remains.

    Any advice? I do like the functionality of the Remote Control module.



  • @Hein-Jan any errors in the logs that you can provide?



  • Having the same problem… Any suggestions?

    MagicMirror will not quit, but it might be a good idea to check why this happened. Maybe no internet connection?

    Is missing body-parser lib required by MMM-Remote-Control

    Go the module directory and run npm install

    cd /home/pi/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Remote-Control/
    npm install
    


  • @roramirez Experience the same issue and was fixed by following your instructions! Thanks a bunch!



  • Thanks, all good now



  • @roramirez.
    Thanks, you have hit the nail on the head. I did run the git pull command, I have run the reinstall (the script did not work so I ran the manual method, but I did not run the npm install.
    Sorry, I am new at this.
    I did search the forum but could not find a solution.

    So, thank for pointing out my mistake and helping me rectify it.

    @ others: thanks for sharing your problems and logs so the problem could be solved.

    Case closed from my perspective.

    @Hein-Jan Sorry about this, forgot to mention, that the new version introduces dependencies which must be installed.

    @roramirez answer should work for anyone having the same problem (thanks!).
