Hi @Jmh474
I just wanted to check, if you are just looking to get a Picroft up and running we now have an official stable Picroft image. Download that and follow the instructions here:

It’s all based on Raspbian but there are a lot of tweaks that have been made to get Mycroft running properly.


I have seen this many thanks but I’m trying to copy and existing post which you can run picroft and MagicMirror2 on the same pi


That will be awesome, let us know how it goes, especially with the CPU usage. I heard that some versions of MagicMirror used a lot more resources than others, hopefully they’ve got that under control now.
