UNSOLVED Total n00b and can't get this thing to work. Please help!
Ok guys. So I nuked my previous raspbian install, and got a new one going. Managed to get an update node install, so things SEEM to be going better. Tried to install magic mirror again, and it went well until right at the end, when I got this:
pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ npm install npm WARN prefer global firstname.lastname@example.org should be installed with -g npm WARN prefer global email@example.com should be installed with -g npm WARN prefer global firstname.lastname@example.org should be installed with -g
And when I try to do a npm start, I get:
pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ npm start > email@example.com start /home/pi/MagicMirror > electron js/electron.js /home/pi/MagicMirror/node_modules/electron/index.js:9 throw new Error('Electron failed to install correctly, please delete node_modules/' + path.basename(__dirname) + ' and try installing again') ^ Error: Electron failed to install correctly, please delete node_modules/electron and try installing again at Object.

I feel like I’m getting closer to making this thing actually work though. Any ideas?
@EttVenter You are not alone this last set of errors is the same as I get, a have tried a number of times and get the same result
I don’t know why but after I got the same errors as your last post I did a reinstall and a firmware update and it worked.
