Complete Walkthrough - Install MagicMirror on a PC - Windows 7/10
Working great on Win 10 Pro 64 bit
That’s good news! Enjoy your mirror.
I’m a Windows 10 user & your MagicMirror Walkthrough was wonderful. Worked perfectly the first run. I have been on youtube for a month or so watching other with work with MM. I would like to expand on whats was given but this is a great start.
Thanks for sharing your walkthrough. Incredibly easy to follow!
You’re quite welcome, my friend.
I think I’ll create a windows backup and give ubuntu a 3rd chance :-D. Using ubuntu mate shouldn’t be a problem? I like that interface a little bit more
Personally, I wouldn’t care which version name or number, as long as it’s stable and MM resides there happily.
Another option for voice would be an alexa skill an module. So I can use alexa for the input trigger.
Cool. Keep me posted.
Made it with ubuntu. I didn’t use the java-scripted marquee fx anymore, changed it to CSS3 transitions - no problems there. Also the 3rd party option works very well. Now, my realtek soundcard detects my microphone. So I don’t have to use my USB mic (latency is horrible - 4-5seconds!! - with my 3,5mm pawl mic ~0,3seconds). I’m using MMM-voice with your Lucy (slightly modified) ;).
So thank you very much Mykle1! Any recommendations for a small 3,5mm pawl mic? Actually, I tested it with a headset mic. But it doesn’t recognize me so good, if I’m 0,5m away.
Excellent. I suspected the drivers were the problem.
Yes, the whole latency thing was a bother to me. The difference in response time using a USB microphone is horrible, as you found out.
I purchased this microphone when I was first working on Lucy because it was inexpensive. It works really well in a quiet environment, with a 99% success rate within 50 inches. I haven’t tested it at long distance.
Thanks for the walkthrough @Mykle1 I did most of the stuff myself but stumbled at the last step - running MM. There is no sh in Windows and I was thinking I need to install Cygwin or something similar. Then stumbled on this post.
On a different note - could you suggest pointer on how to get started writing modules? Ideally, where does one begin in trying to understand the technologies that goes into MM?
This is a good place to start. I still had problems, but the forums are very helpful. Good Luck!!
And you should have
run-start.shin the main MagicMirror folder… If not, probably need to First, unhide file extensions, if it’s still not there, the reinstall MM from new.
Hello. Thanks for this guide. I cant seem to run this. I am a complete newbie :).
I installed NodeJS and Git for Windows. I follows instructions and repeatedly (about 20x times). I also deleted the npm cache and npm under the AppData as well as other dependencies under “my username” folder. I even tried using a different computer and reformat a new computer and I get the same error every single time.
I am using Windows 7, latest patch (whatever that might be as of Juine 24, 2018). For some reason, it looks like it is looking for the a certain file and looking for it in the wrong directory. You may refer to attached screenshot.
Sorry if this is too noobie question, any assistance will be appreciated
@arciemaps new version of MagicMirror just came out a few days ago.
I would scrap everthing and start over with the instructions for the walkthrough.
Only changes I would make is to be sure to get the latest version of everything, ie: nodejs, git for windows, and the MagicMirror.
I think when I started to do this, I had a few problems at first, but once I got it to work, then it got a lot easier…
Are you using Win & 32-bit or 64-bit???
Hello guys, newbie here … I did everything by the book on my laptop and it runs fine (I want to build a mirror and Im currently testing the software) but it says hello and nothing more … except the greetings … how do I take pictures ?! …
