Electron failure Rpi3 Jessie w/Pixel v. 4.4



  • Hello,

    I unboxed my Rpi3 today and installed the full version of Jessie (latest version from rpi.org - kernel 4.4).

    I walked through the main tutorial by KirAsh4 and had no issues until running npm start.

    I’m getting a "failed at the magicmirror@2.1.0 start script ‘electron js/electron.js’.

    I’ve noticed a few others on the forum having the same issues from a year or so ago… but they seemed to have resolved them through a number of tricks (none of which have worked for me - renaming folders and reinstalling, using sudo curl, sudo install electron, etc.).

    What is interesting; however, is that MM works in node serveronly. BUT, only the calendar, ‘hello sexy’, and news feature display. Not the weather.

    Any help on this one? I’m a complete newcomer to this so pardon if this is an easy one…



  • @artank Being one of those who failed repeatedly - just make sure you are on the PI, not ssh’ed in…



  • @artank look at the file config/config.js (which used to be the config.js.sample). Your weather might not be working because you did not enter your API key in it…
