Atom Fails to Launch OS X 10.9.2


Hi Everyone -

I’m having trouble getting Atom to launch on my Mac. I have OS X 10.9.2, and Atom 0.80.0 (just re-downloaded from the front page).

When I launch Atom, I get a white screen with a console visible

TypeError: Object #<Object> has no method 'register'
    at window.onload (file:///Applications/

There is another error when I attempt to click anything in the lone Atom toolbar menu as well:

TypeError: Object #<Object> has no method 'focusedWindow'
   at (/Applications/
   at (/Applications/
   at delegate.executeCommand( /Applications/

Any ideas on what I can do to get Atom running?


Did you try the suggestions on this other thread?


Yes. My app launches, and I get a webkit window with a visible webkit inspector, and an error in the console. Check out the screenshot here.

Sorry for the unclickable url, But it says new users cant put images in posts


bump, i can’t be the only one with this problem.


expand the error so we can see the full exception please


Here is the expanded error. Theres not much else to it.



Have you tried uninstalling and re-installing atom? like a new download and everything? maybe give that a shot.


I have tried that multiple times on multiple occasions, even on different wifi to make sure its not corrupting anything. I’m at a complete loss.
