Final Step of Installing MagicMirror (EXTREME NOOB)



  • Hello,
    I followed the step-by-step instructions very closely (at least I thought), but I’m running into a problem at the very last step. I’m not familiar with working in the terminal, so I don’t really know what’s wrong even though I’m sure it’s a simple fix. The error code is below and the debug file is below that. Any help would be appreciated.

    //pi@raspberrypihall1458:~ $ cd MagicMirror/config
    pi@raspberrypihall1458:~/MagicMirror/config $ cp config.js.sample config.js
    pi@raspberrypihall1458:~/MagicMirror/config $ cd $HOME/MagicMirror
    pi@raspberrypihall1458:~/MagicMirror $ npm start

    Thanks!



  • @hall1458 did you install the dependencies with npm install?



  • No I don’t think so, and that must be my issue. I don’t see this in the complete setup instructions though. Where would I install the dependencies? Again, I’m very new to this so I’m probably missing it. Thanks for the help.



  • @hall1458 cd ~/MagicMirror then npm install
