  • Hi !
    I’m just approaching to this nice project.
    So, I tried the automatic installation on my Raspberry 2 running his standard rasbian os … But it’s failing again and again
    Basically the script starts saying a lot of

    
     warn tar ENOENT: no such file or directory, open [...]
    

    you can find the whole code as an attachment

    …basically I don’t how to solve or debug this … Could someone kindly provide some help ? Thanks!!

  • I don’t know why I can’t upload code here … anyway, you can find it in pastebin

    Did you run the installation with sudo? It’s trying to install in /root/MagicMirror and that’s wrong



  • Do the manual install and don’t use SUDO… 🙂



  • even executing it as root it is failing …and also manual installation it’s faling.
    maybe the reason is very simple : it’s because I’m using rasbian server version ? Should I use raspbian with desktop enviroment ?



  • Not sure about the version but I would just install plain old raspbian and try it again.



  • To be sure everything will work fine i would use the desktop version. Best option here is Jesse i think 🙂

    Otherwise u can try this guide, cause with the lite versions of raspbian there are dependancies missing for the MagicMirror.
    The guide works fine for me using raspbian stretch lite



  • ohh wow! that’s exactly what I was looking for … Thank you a lot! I will let you know if everything is ok!



  • finally here’s the solution :
    as mentioned here, you should use this command for installation :

    npm install --unsafe-perm=true
    

    and now installation is succesfull!
