Total Noob - Successful Install on a Pi 3 B - How do I open it?
I just started fresh with a 32 GB SD on a raspberry pi 3 running raspian.
I used the install code provided on the main site - and everything ran through successfully without error.
My question (which may be extremely dumb) is now what? Most sites I visit say to just open your browser (Chromium) and to go to localhost (or localhost/MagicMirror). I’ve tried both and I get the sad page of “This site can’t be reached”
I tried rebooting just in case I missed something or something was weird. I changed the config file to  for all ipaddresses in the whitelist.
I read a few forums which mentioned typing out the specifc ip - which I did using ifconfig as a lookup but still no avail with that (nor with adding :8000) on the end of it.
Am i missing something completely? Any ideas on what I’m doing wrong?
Thank you for any and all help to someone trying to get into the hobby of raspberry pis.
Open a terminal
cd MagicMirror (enter)
npm start (enter)
pi@Pi3:~/MagicMirror $ npm start
The port is
Thank you!!! I just ran the npm start - and it looks like …something… happened? I now have a large blank empty black screen (mouse still usable and I can get to task manager) so … maybe its trying to work?
Hiding of the mouse was part of the install directions but a black screen with no message “Create a config?”
Another mini update - its now accessible on other computers on my network (going to localhost:8080) just still sitting with a black screen on my pi
Yes, it would, if the mirror is black, then going to it using a browser will only see black as well
can you get to the terminal and post any errors here. Copy them and paste them in here
Yep I have a mouse and… nothing else. I dont have a create a config message - just a blank black screen and full mouse clickability? just checked the terminal thanks to task manager and it looks like there arent any errors
looks like there arent any errors
Scroll back to the info in the terminal till you see the npm start command you made to run the mirror. Copy everything after that and paste here
