Run MM on Ubuntu 16 VM

I’m looking foward to start developing the MM, but at the moment in my country I can’t get a raspi.
Is it any chance to start trying on a ubuntu 16 VM?
Of course. You can also run it on a Windows machine or a Mac. It won’t run “out of the box” as it does on raspbian, but it works
@yawns Great! And is there any step by step guide for noobs like me?

Follow the Manual Installation instructions on this page: About half way down the page:
It worked for me. I installed uBuntu on a laptop and then installed MagicMirror using those directions.
Hi @Mykle1 Thanks for the answer.
I’ve started following the instructions, but I get the following error:
Any idea why?

This is just a guess but I think I remember hearing that MagicMirror has to be installed in your Home directory. I see that you installed it in /home/christain/.
You can try the process again (if you want to) but install MagicMirror as soon as you open a new terminal. Don’t change directories.
I hope this helps
@Mykle1 still having the same problem
Ok, someone will help you at some point. I don’t know if it matters but I’m running uBuntu 16.04 LTS, not as a VM

@Mykle1 Did you get this to work on your device running Ubuntu 16.04? I am trying this on an old tablet running Ubuntu Mate 16.04.
