Atom became Chrome console


#1

My atom app is running chrome console when try to open any file or directory or even when I just run the app typing atom, the interface I’m facing is JavaScript console :smile: I will attach a screenshot.
I have no idea why it became so, I just shut down my computer before that and nothing more. I have no chance to change it because all option I have in drop-down list are:

Check for update
Reload
Close Window
Toggle Dev Tools
Quit


#2

What happens when you start Atom with atom --safe? If that doesn’t fix it, you can try atom --clear-window-state, which will erase any unsaved documents and all your open tabs as well.

Doesn’t help the same error happening again


#4

Have you tried deleting and reinstalling Atom?


#5

The reason why is in the error message there in your screen shot:

Something got corrupted in the ~/.atom/blob-store directory. You should:

  1. Completely exit all instances of Atom
  2. Open a terminal and delete ~/.atom/blob-store and all its contents
  3. Start Atom normally

Things should work after that.
