  • Hi I have installed MagicMirror2 5 times now and still get to the same issue of not starting up.
    Raspberry pi 3
    Jessie Full
    Auto Installer MagicMirror

    I have used the Automatic Installer (Raspberry Pi Only!)
    OK the first time i used Raspbian Stretch Lite but then i moved to Raspbian Stretch Full wont start.

    After some googling i came across a link to install it with Raspbian Jessie Full

    Here is my

    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!

  • @ninjabreadman

    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
