Atom UI broken. Blobstore issue?


#1

I opened up Atom today and it was stuck like this. I have no idea what changed, but I uninstalled and deleted everything associated with Atom two times.


I don’t even have those folders. All I have is
app
app.asar.unpacked
cli
Is there somewhere else I should be looking?


#2

I would bet on some issue during an Atom update leading to a corrupted file, have you tried reinstalling Atom?


#3

You should:

  1. Close all instances of Atom
  2. Delete the ~/.atom/blob-store directory
  3. Launch Atom again

That should fix it.


#4

I deleted everything related to atom, and I don’t have the blobstore folder. I’m not sure if there was an update or something that might have messed it up?
I’m running Windows 7 64


#5

There was a version that caused the blob-store issue. If you have the latest version of Stable, it should be fixed from what I remember.


#6

I tried the beta version and it still didn’t fix the issue. is anyone else experiencing this??
