ELECTRON window starts on top of MM window after clean install!

  • Hi.
    Firstly, thanks for awesome programming!

    Now, I have followed this tutorial EXACTLY: exactly.

    And at step 8 (see my screenshot) after the reboot a stupid blank black “electron” window shows up on top of my MagicMirror window. So I have to go on to my pi gui and minimize it.
    If I try to close it another new “Electron window” pops up on top.

    I’m using the Raspberry Pi 3 B+.

    How can I get rid of the “electron window”???

    Kindest regards, Håkan

  • So, what I did was I stopped and removed the autostart and also removed the and now it only boots up one magic mirror windows. Where this is coming from I have no idea but it works.

    If you enter pm2 list in a console, what is the result?
    I guess your pm2 starts MagicMirror twice, as it will be installed by default from the MagicMirror installer script.

    Ok, yes. I think this was the issue. So when I removed the autostart from pm2 it now only boots up the one MagicMirror.
    Now I’m just having problems to show the MMM-Globe module even though I have activated the OpenGL on the pi.

    After I removed the autostart from my “pm2 ls” command now shows:
    │ Name │ id │ mode │ status │ ↺ │ cpu │ memory │
    │ MagicMirror │ 0 │ 2.6.0 │ fork │ online │ 1 │ 0% │ 2.5 MB │
    │ mm │ 1 │ N/A │ fork │ stopped │ 34555 │ 0% │ 0 B │
    Use pm2 show to get more details about an app
