    We would have to know the error message to attempt to help you. So, run the mirror and make note of the error message, in its entirety. Then post it here in a code block using the </> option above your message window

    You running npm start in the wrong directory.

    First enter cd MagicMirror and enter

    Then run npm start



  • @Duke86 Hi Duke, start with cd MagicMirror/ … you’re probably trying to start MM out of the wrong folder.

    /home/pi/MagicMirror/node_modules/electron

    Try rm -rf /home/pi/MagicMirror/node_modules/electron. Then run npm install electron.

    Error: Electron failed to install correctly, please delete node_modules/electron and try installing again

    The error message is telling you what you have to do. So, in your GUI, you can navigate to your MagicMirror/node_modules/ folder and delete the electron folder. Then open a terminal and cd MagicMirror and npm install



  • I removed the folder and this happened

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ cd MagicMirror
    bash: cd: MagicMirror: No such file or directory
    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ nmp install
    bash: nmp: command not found
    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ ^C
    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $



  • @Duke86 said in Really confused:

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ cd MagicMirror
    bash: cd: MagicMirror: No such file or directory

    You are already in the directory “MagicMirror”. cd (change directory to) can’t find the directory because you are already inside.

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ nmp install
    bash: nmp: command not found

    Just a typo, it’s “npm”, not “nmp”.
