Atom does not start after update


#1

After upgrading from 1.19 to 1.23, under Fedora 24, Atom stopped working.

There are several instances of the process executing, but no interface window is shown.

I delete the configuration directory (~/.atom) and all than it recreated was the directory with a nohup.out file with:

A JavaScript error occurred in the main process
Uncaught Exception:

Have you tried to reinstall the newest version?


#3

Yes. This happened when upgrading to the newest version. And after it broke my setup, I uninstalled Atom, and them reinstalled the most recent one, with the same results.
