UNSOLVED Unable to install dependencies, NPM install not working
I got it running: D
The difference to the 20 previous try was that I did not make the whole in the pure console, but in a terminal under the graphical surface.
This can also be seen in the instructions under the URL https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/236/complete-setup-tutorial/6
after my holiday i gave the thing another chance with a fresh install:
Raspbian Jessie with Pixel
2016-09-23 (is this the problem???)

or is it the problem that the installer is still using eletron-prebuild instead of electron??
Did you tried the followed:
npm install npm@latest -g
npm install -g grunt
npm install -g electron
thanks @tajno for the hint!
My Steps to working MM:
- Fresh Card with latest Version of Raspian (PIXEL)
- [running the installer Script]
- MMM DID NOT WORK AT THIS STAGE
sudo npm install npm@latest -g
sudo npm install -g grunt
sudo npm install -g electron
- manual install of MMM (git clone / sudo npm install / npm start)
