@Florian1 Have you tried contacting PIXtend if their instructions do not work? In any case it would be quite impossible to help without seeing what the error message is.

Yes i tried it several times but every time it dosent want to start

Sorry, I can't help as the product page and documentation is in German. Maybe some German speaking forum member might be able to help. But first you would need to show us what the failure is.

ok thank you :smiley:

Start Node-RED

Once Node-RED has started, point a browser at http://172.17.66.87:1880
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

To find more nodes and example flows - go to http://flows.nodered.org

Starting as a systemd service.

The error seems to come from a PiXtend specific plugin node. You would be more likely to get help by contacting PIXtend customer service.

I tried to sign in in the forum but the registration takes a long time. thank you :grinning:

Looks like the file or directory doesn't exist, thus the "ENOENT".

I have read through the PDF you posted, did you, as in the instructions start and stop node red once before you did the installation of the PiXtend node? They stressed that it was important.

Yes, I start and stopd node red before the installation.
