Hi Thanks for the suggestion. just followed them steps

err! Errno 1
I have a second Sd Card i am going to try it on Raspbian Stretch Full and see if i can get it working
Thanks for all the support guys
Hi so it Just worked.
i was logged in and installed MagicMirror in CLI mode
Just before i decide to move to a new SD card i changed the CLI to GUI in sudo raspi-config
and rebooted the pi once it logged it the MagicMirror kicked in after about 20seconds
Did i do something wrong should i have always had the GUI enables and just worked in terminal
if so. Sorry my bad…
Also any way for the MagicMirror to start quicker with out seeing the GUI Desktop

@paddyhughes Yeah, MM relies on the GUI to display the browser. It’s possible to run without a GUI, but it requires some extra packages and effort. Sorry, didn’t think to ask, but glad to hear it’s up and running!
No i realy happy i got it working thanks everyone for all the help
Alot of great support gong on in the forms
Big Thumbs up to you all
