Install-Problem



  • Hey Guys,
    i’m really fascinated by the magic mirror but however i can’t manage to install it.
    I have a brand new RP 3 with a SanDisk ultra 16 GB sd card
    i started the “normal” installation by using the install bash - there are already some small errors that something should be installed with -g (as you probably noticed i don’t really have a clue of the whole subject)
    Than later when i want to start the MagicMirror program there is this error in the terminal:

    "pi@raspberrypi:~ $ npm start
    npm ERR! Linux 4.4.34-v7+
    npm ERR! argv "/usr/bin/nodejs" "/usr/bin/npm" "start"
    npm ERR! node v6.9.4
    npm ERR! npm  v3.10.10
    npm ERR! path /home/pi/package.json
    npm ERR! code ENOENT
    npm ERR! errno -2
    npm ERR! syscall open
    
    npm ERR! enoent ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/home/pi/package.json'
    npm ERR! enoent ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/home/pi/package.json'
    npm ERR! enoent This is most likely not a problem with npm itself
    npm ERR! enoent and is related to npm not being able to find a file.
    npm ERR! enoent
    
    npm ERR! Please include the following file with any support request:
    npm ERR!     /home/pi/npm-debug.log"
    
    and in the npm-debug.log it says:
    0 info it worked if it ends with ok
    1 verbose cli [ '/usr/bin/nodejs', '/usr/bin/npm', 'start' ]
    2 info using npm@3.10.10

    so i really hope someone can help me out.
    thank you and greetings
