@aro28 That didn’t work on mine. I suspect you would need to go into alsamixer, locate your playback device’s configuration and adjust the default volume there.

RE: Google Assistant won't register.
@KRegan There are a fair number of missing details from the 3rd Party Module instructions, especially when it comes to registering the device. I ended up jumping over here:
and just going through the Google instructions in detail. Once you have the demo software working (audio only, without MM integration), it was fairly easy to sew them together and get it working on the mirror as well. I used my Jabraspeak USB speakerphone, which registered as card 1, device 0 on both the speaker and mic.
Have a scratch pad of some sort handy (OneNote, Notepad, etc) to track the various keys you will generate along the way. Once you get everything onboard, the sequence is boot the Pi (I have pm2 set to autostart the Mirror), connect vis SSH then start the virtual environment (source env/bin/activate), drill down to the pi folder (cd MagicMirror/modules/MMM-GoogleAssistant/pi) and start the assistant.py file (python3 assistant.py).
I took the better part of a weekend. ymmv.
RE: Magic mirror keeps turning blank
When editing this file:
sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
There are TWO versions of statement below something like “SeatDefaults”
xserver-command=X -s 0 -dpms
MAKE SURE YOU ARE BELOW THE SECOND mention of “SeatDefaults”
I spent hours banging my head on this one.
Local file copy to Pi instead of using Github
I’ve been trying to download OpenCV for the facial recognition module, and am running into
RPC failed; result=56, HTTP code = 200, fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly.00 GiB | MiB/s, fatal: early EOF, fatal: index-pack failed
This problem is well documented but none of the workarounds succeeded, which has me thinking since I can successfully download it via browser on my laptop, how can I get it to my Pi? Can’t I just copy to the Pi using a USB drive and go on with the install? Is there a specific command the Pi is using to extract a .zip file when we use “git clone”?
