Hi! To my greatest surprise Atom does not work anymore on my Linux box, though I remember it did work in the beginning of this week. When I try to start Atom from the command line it simply returns without any output and editor window does not show up.
ps aux|grep atom tells me Atom is running, but I get no GUI.
This is what I have tried so far without any luck:
Problem: the command
atom . in project folder didn’t work, nothing shows up
killall atom and restart atom
reinstall Atom from official deb:
sudo apt-get remove --purge atom
sudo dpkg -i atom-amd64.deb
^^ this actually installed 1.2.1, I had 1.2.0 earlier
move user folder then start Atom
mv ~/.atom ~/.atom.bak
remove local config and start Atom
rm -rf ~/.config/Atom
try safe mode
I’ve also tried to install 1.3.0 beta, but it has the same thing, editor window does not show up. Because the last time I opened Atom this monday (or maybe tuesday?) it worked, perhaps an Ubuntu update could broke Atom?
