SOLVED launching on browser?
Hey there! I have successfully installed mm on my laptop running Ubuntu and using the script. Now I’m trying to replicate that in debian 11 but instead of launching electron like it does in Ubuntu it’s launching a web browser and the localhost:8080 (which is unable to connect) I don’t quite understand what happened here. Maybe the script maked a different kind of installation?
@dude31222 can you show me the ~/install.log, or email to me. same userid at gmail
it looks like I set it up to run server mode w my run-start script. but it gets the port from the server startup message. that’s what’s in config.js
note address: is localhost which means ONLY apps INSIDE the same booted os can connect
if this is in a VM or docker container THAT is the booted os.
@dude31222 I do this approach on pi0w where electron is no longer available
@sdetweil Sorry, I don’t have it anymore. Just made a clean install of xubuntu and after a couple of hours now mm is working. For what I’ve tried this days seems like all the distros based on debian have the same problem, Raspbian desktop, debian 11, emmabuntus…
If you like I can make another install whit debian and email you the log file
@dude31222 sure love to see the log file.
I’ve tested on a bunch of OSs all debian based without trouble.
I’ll build a VM to check it out as well
@dude31222 i just installed debian 11 in a vm…
I had to add the user to sudoers and then install curl as it was not installed…
then the script ran fine, altho I had to add the path to bash for the script, even tho bash is the default
all of those are system issues, not script or mm
@sdetweil thank you for your replys and your wonderful script, I’m currently running magic mirror without problems
