@bdream good or bad news, I can create the problem on stretch on my pi0 w
so, more work to do figure out the problem…
@Tracy i don’t know about the videos, but playing a video onto a monitor full screen should be easily done…
portrait mode might be more challenging…
I might have started a different way…
my office has no windows, and I’d like to create something that gives the appearance of same…
I think this describes what you want to do
I don’t think u need MagicMirror for this…
I need your script, not any Updates and Upgrades of raspbian System, and the last Chat entries?
Can I run it on Rpi1 also?
yes, any pi version, plus odroid, jetson nano, ubuntu, macOS, Sierra-Catalina (all i have tested on)
And you would prefer Streich instead of Buster?
the bug is caused by a newer version of glibc (2.28), and buster has that, while stretch has 2.27
so, i think (will test myself later), with stretch, you would not need to use chrome browser
@bdream no reason to uninstall electron…
to start mm using server only and then chrome
#electron js/electron.js $1
# this starts the server in the background node serveronly & # waits 10 seconds -- you may need to increase this time sleep 10 #you should test this from a command prompt window chromium-browser -kiosk -start_maximized http://localhost:8080
then pm2 start MagicMirror will launch this file.
@debaetstony cool, thx
I also have an updated installer that fixes that
and a pm2 only fixer script
we are testing these, and I am going to try to get them into the next release
