Trying to reuse an old project


I currently try to reuse an old project that I worked on quite 4(?) years ago. I made in that time a dashboard based on an Electron + React combination and I wanted to reuse that for a current project, but somehow I have problems to get it back on track (I didn’t do much raspberry things lately).
The good news is: I can build from the old files (tho with old versions, I have also a few warnings) but I don’t get any picture (I connected a full HD Dell Monitor with HDMI).

Originally I used this repo as the base: GitHub - balenalabs/balena-electronjs: electronJS-based resin application template (When it was still resin).
When I build and run it I get the following logs, now I don’t know if I just have to update the Electron version or this the problem is somewhere else. If someone would have a hint for me that would be great.

Hi Sebastian,

I am not entirely sure if this is related to the Electron version, but I found the following articles which discuss this issue from a few years back. Since it seems to be tied to an older version of Electron, I would try updationg and seeing how that goes for you.
This is a thread in the balena forums which discusses the error which you are experiencing. And this is an old balena issue which discusses the error you are experiencing when running electron on a Raspberry Pi.

Let us know how it went and if you have any other questions!

Kind regards,
