Can't run Volumio UI on ubuntu

Hi,
I went through the process of installing the VolumioUI on Ubuntu
as explained in volumio.github.io/docs/Developm … nment.html

I get the following err when running gulp

[code]
/Volumio2-UI$ gulp serve --theme=“volumio”

/home/yossi/elia/Volumio2-UI/gulp/build.js:127
fs.readFileSync(`${conf.paths.src}/app/themes/${themeSelected}/assets/va
^

at Module._compile (module.js:456:26)[/code]

I did the same process on MAC with no problems.

This is very strange since it complain on a syntax error

Please help.

I was able to solve it by search-and-replace, but I leave this question open because I would like to know if it can be solved with a config

but now I get:

[code]gulp serve --theme=“volumio”

Error: Cannot find module ‘zeparser’

I tried again, from scratch and I get:

The solution is to upgrade node.js.

Here is how (Ubuntu 14), see askubuntu.com/questions/426750/ … st-version

[code]
sudo npm cache clean -f
sudo npm install -g n
sudo n stable

sudo ln -sf /usr/local/n/versions/node//bin/node /usr/bin/nodejs[/code]

node --version
v8.2.1

and I still get an error:

/Volumio2-UI$ gulp serve --theme="volumio"
/home/yossi/elia/Volumio2-UI/node_modules/karma/node_modules/socket.io/lib/store.js:35

Please use nodejs 6.1 version
