Magic Mirror not booting up



  • Guys I’m becoming mad, I have spent last two days configuring my smart mirror with google assistant, Spotify and other. Finally today everything was working more or less (just minor adjustment to be done).
    Unfortunately now it doesn’t work anymore, it doesn’t even boot. I can guarantee that before booting I changed just two things:

    • I removed this line
      display_rotate=1
      from
      /boot/config.txt
    • I removed
      -nocursor
      from
      xserver-command=X -s 0 -dpms -nocursor
      in
      /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

    Here is a screenshot:

    All I get now is this:

    It seems your config.js is missed or have something wrong.

    stop pm2 and try this and watch which error is shown.

    cd ~/MagicMirror
    npm start dev
    

    you can check your configuration with;

    npm run config:check
    


  • @sean I cannot start magic mirror using npm start dev because it’s like the graphical environment didn’t load.
    My config file is ok, I just checked it

    Ok, How about your pm2 log?

  • Thanks god I solved it!!!
    While exiting from /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf I pressed inadvertently option+x instead control+x and I added “†” in the file without realising it.
    Thank you guys for helping me out
