I installed core 18 on my raspberrypi 3 and am attempting to run the nod-red dashboard on on the wpe-webkit with mir-kiosk. I have 2 specific problems that arise which I assume are a result of the confinement of the node-red snap:
in node red raspberry pi gpio nodes just say "Not available"
when I try to install new node-red modules from the pallet manager that require access to the i2c bus on the i get the following error:
2020-06-11T22:51:49.782Z [out] > node-gyp rebuild 2020-06-11T22:51:49.782Z [out] 2020-06-11T22:51:54.220Z [err] gyp 2020-06-11T22:51:54.221Z [err] 2020-06-11T22:51:54.221Z [err] ERR! build error 2020-06-11T22:51:54.223Z [err] gyp 2020-06-11T22:51:54.223Z [err] ERR! stack 2020-06-11T22:51:54.224Z [err] Error: not found: make
I wanted to show some relevant system information but for some reason the
lsb_release -a command doesn't exist but
cat /etc/issue/ gives me
Ubuntu Core 18 on \4 (\1) not sure if that info is useful...
I should also mention that I already connected each gpio interface slot to the gpio plugs in node-red but still no dice. and I couldn't find a plug for the i2c interface in node-red.
Am I missing something here.. perhaps @knolleary knows a thing or two about this..
