  • Hello,

    I installed Magic Mirror on RasPi 2 with stretch Lite via SSH. I used the installer command
    bash -c “$(curl -sL”

    the installation went smooth and fast.

    but after rebooting i am seeing the console with pi logged in. THe MM doesnt start.

    I SSed into pi and from MM directory gave command DISPLAY=:0 npm start

    this give mefollowing error. could any one guide please


    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ DISPLAY=:0 npm start

    magicmirror@2.4.1 start /home/pi/MagicMirror

    /home/pi/MagicMirror/node_modules/electron/dist/electron: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

  • If you use the lite version of raspbian, u need to use this guide:

    The guide also works with stretch, but you probably need to install extra stuff manually, when using modules

    But i would recommend to use the full version of raspbian stretch.

  • @cruunnerr .

    Thanks for replying. I just did it on full version on raspbian stretch. Installer went fine. I also pressed y when it asked for installing pm2

    now after i reboot the pi, MagicMirror splash screen comes but i boot into the desktop

    when i ran npm start dev , i can see modules working.

    if i try to run pm2 log, i get error
    -bash: pm2: command not found

    What am i doing wrong in here?
