Ever since I’ve been using Atom, I’ve never had the
apm command work properly. I build Atom locally, with no custom changes made to the source. I use the
sudo script/grunt install command to install the apm & atom commands to
/usr/local/bin/ each time I make a new build. Atom commands work fine. Each time I install those commands, the apm is always a broken symlink, and I’m unable to follow it to the original file. If I cd into
/usr/local/bin/ and run
./apm, I get an error stating
too many levels of symbolic links.
I have Atom built into a custom build dir, which is
/opt/Atom/. I’ve never really cared about
apm not working until now–as I’m trying to publish a syntax theme but I need apm working in order to do so.
I’m on Atom version v0.171.0 currently–but this has been happening since at least v0.125.0 (maybe earlier). I’m running it on Linux Mint 17.
