Below is a copy/paste from a post of mine on reddit, for which I’ve received no help:
Yesterday I installed Luno on my laptop, then proceeded to successfully install Atom. Everything seemed to work fine, even managed to get some CSS coding done. When I went to turn on my laptop today, however, I noticed that when I click Atom’s icon or try to launch it from the terminal, it shows as launching on my toolbar but no window actually shows up. It’s icon just shows as being active with the blue dot beneath it, and when I click around the screen on any other window I may have open, like a Firefox, nothing happens until I select another program from my toolbar. It’s almost as if Elementary thinks Atom is launched and is taking up the entire screen.
I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but so far I’ve had no luck. Anybody have a suggestion as to what I should do?
Edit: Just tested something out. Apparently, if I manage to click on the area of my screen where Atom’s menus (File, Edit, View, etc.) would be had it launched in full screen I am literally able to make the context menu contents appear. It’s like Atom launched, but its window is invisible.
Can any of you guys figure out what I’m doing wrong? I’m driving myself mad trying to figure out what the problem is.
