  • When running the curl, first errors are:

    Then I ran npm start to see what would happen:

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ npm start
    
    > magicmirror@2.1.0 start /home/pi/MagicMirror
    > electron js/electron.js

      throw new Error('Electron failed to install correctly, please delete node_modules/' + path.basename(__dirname) + ' and try installing again')
      ^

    So, I can delete node_modules, but how would I go about reinstalling?

  • Same here, brand new Jessie lite 17-03-02 Release, installation failed



  • Same here, clean install on RPI3 with regular Raspbian Jessie.
