sudo dpkg -i node_latest_armhf.deb

git clone https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror
sudo npm install (This will take 30+ minutes)
sudo apt-get install midori
sudo apt-get install unclutter
sudo aptitude install xinit
sudo apt-get install matchbox
sudo nano /etc/init.d/startMagicMirror.sh
#!/bin/bash ### BEGIN INIT INFO # Provides: startMagicMirror.sh # Short-Description: startMM # Description: starts MM ### END INIT INFO cd /home/pi/MagicMirror node serveronly & sleep 20
sudo xinit /home/pi/startMidori.sh

sudo chmod a+x /home/pi/startMidori.sh
@bbdv did you use Jessie or Stretch for that?
