Blackscreen with no errors.
So I have a problem that when I run sudo npm start the blank screen pops up.
Starting MagicMirror: v2.1.2 Loading config ... Loading module helpers ... No helper found for module: alert. Initializing new module helper ... Module helper loaded: updatenotification No helper found for module: clock. No helper found for module: compliments. No helper found for module: currentweather.

Connecting socket for: updatenotification Connecting socket for: newsfeed Starting module: newsfeed Sockets connected & modules started ... Launching application.
This is terminal log, as you can see there is no error.
I have tried several ways to fix it like deleting modules or changing the language, Im using Kubuntu and actually wanted to try it out on my laptop before buying pi3, any idea what could cause this problem?
You shouldn’t have to run
sudoto launch the mirror. The installation guide states, “DO NOT INSTALL MagicMirror² as the root user! Always do it as the regular, non privileged pi user.”
With that being said, is your console reporting any errors? cd into your MagicMirror directory and run
npm start devand see what you get there
Oh, the sudo part might be infact my bad.
You have more than a few problems going on there. Did you install your dependencies? I would try that first. Did you have the mirror running at all and it later failed when you added something? Or have you not got it to run at all?
Personally, if installing the dependencies is not the problem, I would do a whole new installation manually, installing the latest node and npm first, then installing the dependencies, then try to running the mirror with the defaults before trying to edit anything.
You were totally right about administrative rights @Mykle1, I have done it from beggining and it works like a charm.
Oh, that’s good news. Enjoy your mirror
