change husky setup

note that the scripted install does not install the dev dependencies, so they will not be there, how does this affect first time users trying to create a pr?

screen positioning changed in latest (v16) electron, cannot display on second screen

this is for documentation purposes

in prior electron releases setting config.js option

  electronOptions:{ x:width_of_1st_display_in_pixels},    // for example    electronOptions:{ x:1920 },

would open MM on the second display

now you need to specify more info

  electronOptions:{ fullscreen:false,
             x:width_of_1st_display_in_pixels, 
             width: xxx,
             height: yyy,
             frame:false
          }

xxx is the width to display on the other screen yyy is the height to display on the other screen

Windows installation throws an error

@khassel I've got no clue. I consider it broken. npm stuff should be platform neutral. I proposed a PR to try to neutralize some of this last year. but as Windows isn't supported it hasn't had any interest.

besides, MagicMirror doesn't support Windows, so why is there ANY doc on Windows?

MagicMirror doesn't support pi0w either and it is now broken, needing a special install of a downlevel browser to get anything to work.

which ditch do you want to be in, tracking all the stuff MagicMirror doesn't support, or silence on them?

error npm command not found

if you do not use my install script, see https://github.com/sdetweil/MagicMirror_scripts then u have to install node and npm manually

a google search will show you how.. https://www.makersupplies.sg/blogs/tutorials/how-to-install-node-js-and-npm-on-the-raspberry-pi

dpkg lock usually means some other process is already doing updates

Pm2 Log Errors - How can i solve these errors ? Screen goes black after a while

Ok can we increase the timeout maybe ? i don't know how i can solve this problem better..

no, its WAY down in the system layer, way outside MagicMirror..

the whole system (raspberry pi) DEPENDS on reliable network connectivity, and name lookup is how it works.

I have seen this error a lot when the user is running a system, like pihole, to block advertisements

Windows installation throws an error

what a mess

you don't have to do the fonts/vendor steps, those look ok.

change the start line in package.json like this npm(16) has broken windows exec with /
note the double backslash

"start": "node_modules\\.bin\\electron js\\electron.js",

Windows installation throws an error

so, the problem is here that the husky install fails, and electron is not yet installed (as it runs a post install script)

SO, use

npm install --only=prod

to get only the production stuff, not any dev dependencies

then do the fonts and vendor npm install steps then edit the package.json to remove DISPLAY stuff

then npm start will work .

Windows installation throws error

my stuff doesn't work on windows

have to do manual install and the extra steps.

oh, I see they have screwed up the extra steps too!! ( husky)

u have to install mode and npm before MagicMirror.

u will have to open an issue on the MagicMirror GitHub page. I don't have any control over that

Pm2 Log Errors - How can i solve these errors ? Screen goes black after a while

you need to clear the logs or print more of them

the issues at the top are from Jan 7, and the stuff from below from Jan 10

do

pm2 stop all
pm2 flush
pm2 start MagicMirror

then when it fails. pm2 stop all

pm2 logs --lines=100 >somefile.txt

ctrl-c

then examine somefile.txt
