  • also forgot to mention i am using a RPi 3

    Alternatively I thought trying a manual installation would have a different outcome and have come across the following issue:

  • @azmuth94 did you try to update node? you’re running 4.2, I’m using 6.5



  • @strawberry-3.141 i upgraded my version of node to 6.6.0, still same issue:
    0_1475083613232_upload-013572d4-419b-48c6-a1d4-9cc765263dc1



  • Try:

    sudo npm install -g electron
    

    If you get any errors with that command then something needs fixing outside of the MagicMirror package and installation.



  • @jc21 yes issue was solved once I set my system time
