I am the only one that cannot make the Search button do anything here on the Forums?
Sounds strange that you have bad performance with Pi4. We all run it on Pi3 without serious problem…
There might be issues with your Pi4, don’t you think?
Or maybe give another distro a try (the one before).
But back to the original question:
I am not into the core of MM, so I cannot really help. I am not sure if you need X server for the MM window…
Not sure which module is this, but probably have better luck if you get in touch with the module maintainer.
Mostly the modules are in github (check the clone url of the module), and there can be an issue tracker, or at least an email address of the developer.
I am also quite new here, so I might be mistaken, but I think a module problem best tackled by the developer…
Please dont forget to share the solution once you figured it out, as it could be helpful for the community.
Just some random thoughts:
Are the update/install servers are the same for the 2 RPis?
/etc/apt??? (not sure about the exact path…) is the location of the files that defines the update servers.
Do they gave the same internet access? No problem accessing any website on the problematic one?
Just start a xterm (or any terminal) on the RPi, and type those commands in there. And copy+paste the output of those to the forum.
Maybe you have to execute those from the Magicmirror directory, I am not sure. But if yes, in the xterm you started just type ‘cd MagicMirror’. And after that type those 2 commands.
You have modified files that has not been ‘saved’ in the git database. Type ‘git status’, and it will list those changes.
After that you can decide what to do: keep the changes (in this case use ‘git commit’)
revert or discard the changes (in this case ‘git checkout’ is the command, if I am not mistaken)
Not sure what exactly you try to achieve, but for an update I would use a fresh directory instead. Just create a new one and clone into it…
I think the RPi itself can also draw a ‘black frame’. Search for the term “overlay”. It is a setting in the /boot/config.txt of RPi sdcard.
But probably the css modification above is more elegant…
Sorry for the late reply…
I haven’t changed anything, it just happened all of a sudden.
This was with https://github.com/spectroman/mmm-moon-phases
I wanted to clone the module from scratch, to make sure that nothing is corrupt in my ‘modules’ directory, so I went to the modules page and searched for ‘moon’. The first hit was another module (https://github.com/NolanKingdon/MMM-MoonPhase) but I haven’t realized it until I loaded it :).
I like this even better, so at the end I haven’t investigate what went wrong with the other one.
I am in the middle of my 1st MM project. Components are selected with ‘keep it low budget’ in mind, as this is an experiment.
So I am using plexiglass/acrylic sheet as the mirror (https://www.pyrasied.nl/en/product/spy-mirror/).
I am wondering what would be the best way to cover the back side of the plastic?
I am planning to do it just to make sure I have the best reflection on the places where there is no monitor.
I think I have these options:
do nothing, leave it how it is, will work fine.
It is a frameless mirror (the frame is actually smaller than the mirror), so I need to cover the edges of the mirror, because there is nothing behind it. It is 2-3 cm.
Because it is frameless, I will have difficulties to attach the paper at the edges. I am afraid the paper will not stick to the plastic (why would it stick to it?), and if it is loose, it will not do what it suppose to do
use glass film
something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Total-Blackout-Window-Film-Prevention/dp/B071HLNG14
I like this idea. If something goes wrong, I can easily remove this film. It is also easy to cut a window on the material for the monitor before attaching.
Might be option two. Problem is to make that window for the monitor. Not impossible, but needs some preparation
So I would go for option 3), but before investing, I would appreciate some feedback. Have you guys cover the back of the mirror at all?
Thanks and happy MM-ing
