Is this still the proper method to install this? I get "Unable to install dependencies!"
Daily3d Printing (9 hours ago)
+ChangeThaChannel I practically know nothing when it comes to this sort of thing so I won't be much help, I'm still trying to get my mirror to boot up each time but I screwed something up
ChangeThaChannel (9 hours ago)
+Daily3d Printing Yeah I did too, i only have 2 issues. After about an hour and a half all the info disappears but the weather. And I get CONVERSATION ERROR for the voice control. Also I don't know how to make the sound come from the analog output instead of HDMI

Is there a way to make the clock font bigger? I am setting this up at home on a 7 inch Pi screen and all I want to have on the screen is the time and the weather forecast. Thanks in advance.
Gian De (1 month ago)
Look under "/home/pi/MagicMirror/modules/default/clock/clock.js" and try to find where the font is. It will probably not be called font, rather it might be under "px" or will be in the CSS file (open with text editor) there it is clearer to see the config for the clock.

I think when you did the curl -sL... Installation you need a sudo for it. Before it didnt worked but after i wrote sudo curl -sL... It worked fine.

Hi Grensom, Thanks for sharing this great video. I followed your instructions step-by-step and had my MagicMIrror2 up and running. However, I decided to delve into the backend to customise it a little bit. My MagicMirror shows 4 calendars, Google Calendar, Facebook Birthdays, Facebook Events and Holidays in Malta (my country). It also shows 2 news feeds, from Reuters and Sky News (I removed the New York Times RSS feed), together with the current time and weather, a 7-day weather forecast and personalised compliments. The next step will be the installation of the 2-way mirror. Eventually, I will probably enable Google Assistant, touchscreen technology, and connect to it a motion sensor. In the meantime, if you would like to have a see how my MagicMirror2 looks like, go to https://goo.gl/mVnQfh.

how do you fix the dependency ?
David Celayos (5 months ago)
How do you set it to portrait mode? I can’t seem to be able to get it and I’ve tried everything. I did the following: sudo nano /boot/config.text Display_rotate=1 Nothing happens. I also expanded the file thing to 128m can’t really remember what it’s called. None of this works.

I'm having problems connecting VNC also, I've run the command right but I can't enable it in Raspi-config. Do I need to create an account and sign in?

Hi, great project! Could you tell us which framework(if any) and other tools you used to develop the magic mirror code?
Rocco Rossi (7 months ago)
Evrythings ok ...but only the glass costs 89 €😣
SUH DUDE (27 days ago)
Rocco Rossi you could just buy plexiglass instead and put some 1-way mirror film on it. It’s cheaper that way.

Vartan Benohanian (8 months ago)
This is the most well done tutorial for smart mirrors I've ever come across. Thanks a lot! I have one problem and I can't find a solution. After the long command at 14:06, my raspberry pi seems to autostart at the MagicMirror right then and there. Is it normal that I don't need to run the commands you show after in the video, such as the creation of the mm.sh script?
Vartan Benohanian (8 months ago)
Thanks a lot for the quick reply. Clears up a lot. Appreciate it.
Grensom (8 months ago)
So it looks like with the bash command to download the MagicMirror software, it prompts you whether you want to download the pm2 function or not. If you chose yes, then you can skip the whole "Auto-Boot" section of the video. If you type: "pm2 list" it will probably show you the MagicMirror file is active. The mm.sh is just another file I created if you download the pm2 software after the fact and need to create your own file.

I go through the video but facing 1 issue. Packages from nodesource not able to download Facing below issue Err:1 https://deb.nodesource.com/node_9.x stretch InRelease Failed to connect to deb.nodesource.com port 443: Connection refused
Grensom (8 months ago)
Hmmm, it looks like there may be an issue with compatibility with Stretch. Maybe try using an older version of the Raspbian Image (I used Raspbian Jessie in the video).
Juan Smit (8 months ago)
Hi @Grenson , Thanx for the tutorial ! I followed every step and it all works perfect! However , is there a way to incorporate a motion sensor to this so the mirror only goes on when you are in front of it ? Sorry I read thru most of the comments and could not find anyone asking the same question , so sorry in advance if this has already been asked before ! Thanx again ! Got everyone I know to sub you !
Juan Smit (8 months ago)
or so the motion sensor just gets the display out of the 5min sleep timer..

You should add installing "unclutter" to the your list. This will get rid of the mouse while the magic mirror is running.
