@Mykle1 I have electron version 1.6.10, can you please tell me how to make it 1.4.15?
From the provided link I get to know that MMM-2.1.0 and Electron 1.4. 15 is the best combination.
I’m sorry if my question appears to be very basic, also I cannot do a fresh clean new installation because my Raspberry pi has some of my other projects going on.
Thank you …
can you please tell me how to make it 1.4.15?
npm install firstname.lastname@example.org
I don’t know if installing electron 1.4.15 without MM 2.1.0 will help but I hope so. Please let me know what your results are and good luck.

@Mykle1 I already have MM-2.1.0 installed. I just have the electron 1.6.1 So I believe downgrading electron will show some result.
If I’m not wrong then, the conclusion from the link you posted, was MM-2.1.0 with electron 1.4.5??
Also if i use npm install @1.4.5,. What will happen with the already installed electron 1.6.1, won’t it clash ???
You are correct. The determination was that MM v2.1.0 and electron v1.4.15 combination gave the best performance.
npm install email@example.com overwrite the existing electron. If not, you can manually uninstall it before installing 1.4.15
@Mykle1 should I use this command in ‘MagicMirror/node_modules/’ directory or somewhere else.
Also how to uninstall electron manually?
I’m sorry if my question is too basic.
