Npm start throwing error



  • Hi there and thank you for spending time reading this message.
    I got excited very much by this project, and i decided to make a MagicMirror on my own.

    I have followed up the whole tutorial
    bash -c "$(curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/master/installers/raspberry.sh)

    I ended up getting an error saying Electron did not install properly.
    I did RM RF node_modules and npm install from beginning

    Still in the end it is the same error that comes up

    /home/pi/MagicMirror/node_modules/electron/index.js:9
    throw new Error - Electron failed to install correctly, please delete node_modules/electro and try installing again.

    Below here i am pasting the npm-debug.log
    Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

  • Just a small update.
    I have followed the suggestions made from Mykle1 on some posts below, but i did not get any good results of this.
    I did manual installation and i still get exactly the same error.

    @nepsilonn said in Npm start throwing error:

    throw new Error - Electron failed to install correctly, please delete node_modules/electro and try installing again.

    This is telling you to delete the Electron folder

    I did RM RF node_modules and npm install from beginning

    NOT the node_modules folder, which you deleted.

    I don’t know where you think you read that I suggested that. Certainly not in this topic.

    So, what you should have done is delete JUST the Electron folder and run npm install in the MagicMirror directory



  • https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/4879/npm-start/7 I read your suggestion from here.

    Not the rm rf as a suggestion from you, but rather manual installation.
    Now it works, thank you for this.

    That’s good news. Enjoy your mirror.
