Every time I try to type something in Atom it freezes. I haven’t downloaded any packages so this just seems to be an issue with Sierra/Atom. Any guidance would be appreciated.
What version of Atom are you running?
Even though you haven’t downloaded any packages, just to double check, do you see any difference starting Atom in safe mode?
Still does it even in safe mode with the latest version of Atom. I recently updated to Sierra so I’m wondering if that’s the problem?
I have the same issue : Atom freezes an then crashes since I upgraded to 1.18 (it should have sent you bug reports, by the way).
Even activating the --safe mode doesn’t prevent that.
I downloaded Atom 1.11 and it has fixed the problem. Hope this helps!
Well… not that much, because the current version is 1.18 !
Just delete current version of atom and download the old 1.11 version.
That’s quite a substantial downgrade. Even if 1.18.0 itself is causing trouble, it hardly seems necessary to roll back to last October.
You’re right, DamnedScholar !
How can we fix this ?
.git folder in your home directory. You can use
rm -r ~/.git in Terminal.
That seems to work, DamnedScholar.
Thank you so much !
Thank you DamnedScholar, I have been fighting this issue for over a week. You fixed it. (for the moment at least:slight_smile:)
If it happens again, let us know immediately. I still have no idea what causes this.
