Dumbest question of the week Calendar Module
When I start my MM I get a message that says " Error in Calendar Module - Check logs for details"
So my question is… Where are those pesky logs? I tried Whereis *.log but got nothing in return…
Help? and thanks
@n6ng where u start mm the messages are output. if u save them, they are the log. if not they are lost
if you use pm2 to launch mm
then the command
pm2 logs --lines=???
where ??? is some number, default 15
will show you ??? lines of the error messages and ??? lines of the non error messages
1st debug step for calendar , take the url u put in config for the ics file , and use it in a browser on the mm system.
it should download the calendar ics file.
which is just text.
@sdetweil Thanks Sam… I’ll give it a try.
@n6ng alternatively, if you can open two ssh sessions, you can use one of them with just
pm2 logs- and watch it live as you restart MagicMirror in the other one.
@bkeyport That’s my next project, to get the SSH working so I can program the mm from my PC…
There was an error in the calendar address and once I fixed that it works great… now on to the SSH programing…
Thanks again Sam
@n6ng use one of the integrated ssh clients. bitvise or winscp
you get an ssh window AND a file browser over the pi file system. just double click to edit w your favorite editor.
notepad++, vscode, whatever…
sudo raspi-configwill give ya the options to enable SSH - on the PC, use termius or putty.
As for further PC control, you could look into samba - follow the instructions here for samba, they’re brilliant, even though it claims it’s for MacOS, it works for Windows too.
