Failed at the magicmirror@2.0.0 start script 'electron js/electron.js'.



  • I did just install MagicMirror with the tutorial in the hardware forum, no errors until the last step to run it.

    Raspberry pi3, what is wrong? I know nothing about linux…
    If i use “node serveronly” I can connect to it from the desktop.



  • “npm install electron” from a terminal window without quotes…



  • that must be a pretty old turorial when your running node on version 4

    i would recommend to take this tutorial https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/236/complete-setup-tutorial



  • Listen to Strawberry, he knows. I didn’t realize it was old. His answer is much better

    I did follow that guide at first, same error. After some google someone said to install that specific version, still same error. Now I don’t know how to update it :)

    Still same error.

  • Well my first time I ended up going to the magic mirror dir in terminal and installed node.js and elec myself. Then it worked. Look up how to install node and elec. they will give the commands to do it. That’s how I did it. For some reason when I had to redo everything I downloaded magic mirror and installed it directly from my sd card and it went without issue



  • @Jakllo
    I initially had that problem too - you need to be logged in as PI - not root.
    I’d suggest starting all over: it really wont take that long. Follow the
    tutorial @strawberry-3-141 mentioned (https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/236/complete-setup-tutorial) to the letter. It was written by @KirAsh4 & made all of my problem go away. I have now done it 4 times, getting it done in less than an hour from unpacking to having it all run!

    My raspberry all of a sudden even connected via WiFi, and I am expecting my hair to grow back any day now.

    I’m telling you - pure magic, these guys.

    All the best

    Thank you very much, it works now!
