Problems getting setup on Raspberry Pi Desktop (for PC and Mac)
I followed all of the instructions, but when I get to the npm install from within the MagicMirror directory, I get an error that states: -bash: npm: command not found. I have searched multiple sites, and cannot find anything on this.

Just for reference, this is what version of Node I have installed. This is a really old, single core computer. Maybe it won’t run properly on here, but just wanted to check.

I get an error that states: -bash: npm: command not found.
What version of npm?
@mykle1 Hey mkyle1, not sure. I get this error every time I try to run the npm command:
-bash: npm: command not found
Then it would seem you need to install npm
@mykle1 Thanks for the reply mkyle1. See below what I get when trying to install NPM:
sudo apt-get install nodejs npm

Note, selecting ‘nodejs:amd64’ instead of ‘npm:amd64’
nodejs is already the newest version (8.11.1~dfsg-2~bpo9+1).
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
nodejs : Conflicts: nodejs:amd64 but 10.15.1-1nodesource1 is to be installed
nodejs:amd64 : Depends: python-minimal:amd64 but it is not going to be installed
Conflicts: nodejs but 8.11.1~dfsg-2~bpo9+1 is to be installed

@bhepler Thank you bhelper. I will check this out. In the meantime, I think I will retire this ancient computer, and use it as a display piece.
What OS are you running on that laptop? I’ve gotten single core laptops to run MM under ubuntu.
For what it’s worth:
@mykle1 It’s actually on old mini PC. To give you an idea of how old it is, Windows XP was running on it previously.
