Manage palette not found

I'm running my node-RED but it does not show manage palette and some other components anyone who knows how to resolve this please help.

First off, it would be helpful if you let us know

  1. what platform and device is NR running
  2. what version of NR and node.js are you running (you can find this in the startup log

Also how did you install node-red?

In a command line terminal, what does this command show
npm -v

Device: Raspberry Pi 3B+
npm version: 8.19.2
node-red: v16.18.1

God-Did@God-Did:~ $ node-red-start

Start Node-RED

Once Node-RED has started, point a browser at
On Pi Node-RED works better with the Firefox or Chrome browser

Use node-red-stop to stop Node-RED
Use node-red-start to start Node-RED again
Use node-red-log to view the recent log output
Use sudo systemctl enable nodered.service to autostart Node-RED at every boot
Use sudo systemctl disable nodered.service to disable autostart on boot

Your flow credentials file is encrypted using a system-generated key.
If the system-generated key is lost for any reason, your credentials
file will not be recoverable, you will have to delete it and re-enter
your credentials.
You should set your own key using the 'credentialSecret' option in
your settings file. Node-RED will then re-encrypt your credentials
file using your chosen key the next time you deploy a change.

It looks like you marked the thread solved. But at any rate, you have a couple of issues that show up in the log which may or may not effect the palette issue ou should fix those.

1- 23 Nov 10:48:55 - [info] Node-RED Dashboard not found - ui_worldmap not installed.
you need to install node-red-dashboard

2- 23 Nov 10:48:56 - [warn] [node-red-contrib-node-webcam/node-webcam] Error: Cannot find module 'webcam'
If you look at the information about the node (something you should make a habit of doing befor installing a node) node-red-contrib-node-webcam (node) - Node-RED You will see it has an extra step

Additionally you have to install on the Raspberry Pi

You have to install fswebcam by following command.

sudo apt install fswebcam

If you are using the default path - the /home/pi/Pictures will be used.

So you should do that also.

Fix those, stop and restart NR and see if the 'Manage Palette' option works

errr - no you don't need to install it... it's just info saying that particular ui node won't work unless you do... - the rest of the worldmap nodes will work just fine without the dashboard...
