Errors when trying to start MagicMirror - New to Pi



  • I am getting the following errors when I run “npm start”

    It looks as though you’re running npm start in the wrong directory. Please try cd MagicMirror and then npm start in pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $

    I went into the directory you gave me and this is what it gave me back;
    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cd MagicMirror
    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ npm start

    magicmirror@2.2.2 start /home/pi/MagicMirror
    sh run-start.sh

    /home/pi/MagicMirror/node_modules/electron/index.js:9
    throw new Error(‘Electron failed to install correctly, please delete node_modules/’ + path.basename(__dirname) + ’ and try installing again’)
    ^

    To be honest I have no idea how I messed this up. I simply pasted the bash code on the website and hit enter. then tried npm start.



  • you have to install first and then start with npm install && npm start



  • I just got my R Pi 3, installed Raspbian Stretch with Desktop, and tried to install Magic Mirror.

    I was getting “hash sum mismatch” on package updates until I plugged in a network cable (instead of using WiFi). The packages updated properly, and Magic Mirror installed and ran fine showing the default modules!

    The error is telling you how to correct the problem
