    I used a Raspberry pi 2 with a fresh install of Raspbian Jessie and I followed the step by step tutorial (https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/236/complete-setup-tutorial)

    I believe @paviro is the Electron God around here. But he’s busy with school at the moment so it may be a bit before he responds.



  • Hi,

    Same error for me (Raspberry Pi 3 / Jessie)

    Thanks


  • Module Developer

    as I c, you’ve installed your MagicMirror in the /root directory.
    I’m not sure if this is working so far.

    Try to install everything as pi and not as root in the /home/pi directory and let us know what happend.

    try whoami -> pi

    update your distribution with sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

    then cd /home/pi or only cd

    and install again: curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/master/installers/raspberry.sh | bash



  • @Bangee
    I just try to launch the autoinstaller as pi in /home/pi and it works !

    Thanks a lot ;)



  • Yes, when i installing with the user pi, it’s work. But now i Have this message
