launching MM with RDP and scaling issues
Newb issue, but when I launch MM using RDP it works fine on my monitor, but not on the magic mirror. I am completely new to this and programming and this is my first real go at it.
I used RDP to connect to Pi and built the magic mirror. It works perfectly when I connect with RDP. The mirror and modules load, and load in the correct position, everything looks beautiful.
Now when I connected Pi to the monitor used for the magic mirror and ran the magic mirror two issues presented themselves:
- I could not get MM to load and run on the monitor used for the actual magic mirror, it runs on my desktop monitor but not the actual magic mirror monitor. To fix this issue I downloaded Putty and can now launch MM on the actual monitor being used for the magic mirror but now that leads to my second problem.
- When I run MM using Putty on the magic mirror monitor, the font is too big and squished together.
@megamirror when u open the putty session do
DISPLAY= cd ~/MagicMirror npm start
now it should be working on the pi correctly
what display is being used on the pi?
for remote view and debug, in the mm config.js
then on your PC u can use a browser to open the mm window using url
u should be able to use rdp, ssh or putty and get the pi address with
@sdetweil Thank you. I will give make the changes.
For the display I am using an old 23 inch samsung monitor.
