Blank Screen - MagicMirror Fresh Install
Hi everyone, I just tried installing the MagicMirror module and when I started the module using npm start nothing shows up and all I can see is a black screen.
Has anyone ran into this problem before? Any help would be much appreciated.
Are there any errors in your terminal or console?
@Mykle1 no errors, I’m trying to manually install it using your tutorial I’ll let you know if i run into the same problem.
Ok, take your time. Good luck.
just finished the install, however im still running into the same problem

im stuck, it seems like its running fine but im still getting a black screen.
Your monitor is directly connected to the Pi?
@Mykle1 yes it is but I am using VNC Viewer to input commands from my laptop.
Sounds like you’re in node server only mode. Try running
DISPLAY=:0 npm startthrough VNC.
Also, after you launch MM but it doesn’t appear, try opening a browser window on your laptop and entering 192.168.1.1:8080 (but you would put the IP address of your Pi in place of 192.168.1.1)
