Autostart Issue and No Interface



  • Hello,

    I am trying to build my MagicMirror and I am having trouble getting the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B set up.

    I used the automatic installation and followed the instructions but I can’t get the interface started somehow.

    I get this error message:

    MagicMirror installation successful!
    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ npm start
    
    > magicmirror@2.1.1 start /home/pi/MagicMirror
    > sh run-start.sh

    npm ERR! Or if that isn't available, you can get their info via:

    npm ERR! There is likely additional logging output above.
    
    npm ERR! Please include the following file with any support request:
    npm ERR!     /home/pi/MagicMirror/npm-debug.log
    
    

    When I reboot the Pi, it gets me to the login screen. And when I want to start it manually, the error message above is shown.

    Thank you in advance for helping me.

  • Did you install the latest version of node.js?



  • This post is deleted!


  • Hi. Can you do

    sudo cat /home/pi/MagicMirror/npm-debug.log

    and post some of that code?



  • @hartattack yes I have, I even launched the automatic installation couple times to be sure.

    
    Check current Node installation ...
    Node currently installed. Checking version number.
    Minimum Node version: v5.1.0
    Installed Node version: v6.10.2
    No Node.js upgrade nessecery.
    It seems like MagicMirror is already installed.
    To prevent overwriting, the installer will be aborted.
    Please rename the ~/MagicMirror folder and try again.

  • 
    npm WARN prefer global coffee-script@1.10.0 should be installed with -g
    npm WARN prefer global jsonlint@1.6.2 should be installed with -g
    npm WARN prefer global colorguard@1.2.0 should be installed with -g
    
    

    I have also this code showing up when I want to install MagicMirror, thoughts ?



  • I think I found the problem ! It was a problem with Electron. I followed some advice giving in this thread: https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/issues/145

    “running “sudo npm install electron” (after the error message) in the terminal on the gui it worked starting in the terminal on the gui.”
