Super nooby question- How to configure the downloaded modules and weather wont show up



  • Hello,
    I am making a Magic Mirror as my first project with a Raspberry Pi and I have basically no prior knowledge of code, other than those code games and whatnot. I was able to successfully download the MagicMirror on my Raspberry Pi using the shortcut, but when I open up the MagicMirror page, the weather forecast and the current forecast don’t show up. Nothing shows up in that corner. I think I could fix it by adding their modules to my modules list. I also want to change the 24-hour clock format to a 12 hour one, but I don’t know haw to access my modules or where to add new ones. I read something about opening my config.js files or something, but I have no idea how. Sorry for the long post and probably lame question.
    Thanks
    Ghaal



  • Hi Ghaal! Welcome first and foremost!

    You need to edit the config.js file. However, we first need to make sure it is created. On your pi, in the GUI, look for an icon that looks like a file folder. If you click on that, it will open a directory of your files. From there, look for the file called Magic Mirror, open that, then look for a file called Config and open that. Inside there, do you see a file that is titled config.js (don’t confuse this with the config.js.sample file)?

    Do you have Teamspeak?

    You got him hart? Ok! Remember, you can use the TeamSpeak Help Desk if you want to take him there



  • @Mykle1 If it gets too complex, I will work my way over there, but I have a feeling this should be fairly simple as pointing in the right direction ;)

  • Sorry, I haven’t replied in like two weeks, but I ran into some major problems. My brother broke my HDMI cable while it was plugged into my monitor and I take to take off half the plastic to take the head out of the monitor. Then I had to put the plastic back on so it would fit in my frame again. I also had to order a new cable. But I’m here and ready to work on it thank you.

    @ghaal Don’t feel bad so far I’ve broken a 32" tv and a 24" monitor… that’s some of the stuff I’ve broken LOL
