RE: Npm start...
@cowboysdude I managed to get it up and running locally on a super old system running Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS. I had some trouble starting electron via SSH when running
DISPLAY=:0 npm start, but
npm startworked just fine
Here is a list of steps that got it running (i’m running node v6.9.4 and npm v4.1.1):
sudo apt-get install git git clone https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror.git curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo -E bash - sudo apt-get install -y nodejs node --version curl -sL https://www.npmjs.com/install.sh | sudo -E bash - npm --version cd MagicMirror/ cp config/config.js.sample config/config.js npm install npm start
Not sure if this will help. You can always try to run verbose mode
npm start --verboseto see if there is any information that may lead you to finding a reason why it doesn’t start. It was very sluggish on my system, but this is a very old computer.
P.S. Sorry it took me a while to get to try it out and get back to you. It has been a very long and exhausting day.
When i follow these steps it says i have node V4.0.0 installed
Electron failed to install properly
Used the auto-installer to install MM2, When i type DISPLAY=:0 npm start i get this error. ```

Looked around for a fix but could not find one, Electron quick start gave the same error, any ideas?
