i have a problem at the moment that my atom simply simply freezes all the time. It started a couple of days for no apparent reason (no updates or anything like that, at least that i know of) and continues to happen in even shorter frequency.
What happens is that Atom simply totally freezes. No unresponsive warning or anything. I can close the application normally, but most of the time starting Atom again just opens a blank Atom window in a frozen state. Completely rebooting my system seems to help, but that is obviously not a solution.
I have tried to start atom in savemode via
--save but that didn’t help. I also tried
atom --clear-window-state which sometimes seems to help a little bit, which means it does not totally freeze for some moments before freezing again. I disabled all my community packages leaving only the core packages enabled, but it does not resolve any of the issues.
I don’t really know how to further troubleshoot the issue. Maybe i can get some help here.
I am on Ubuntu 14.04.
Atom : 1.23.3
Chrome : 56.0.2924.87
Node : 7.4.0
