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:
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
