Cannot use Atom in Ubuntu with multiple users


I installed Atom on Ubuntu via PPA. It doesn’t work with multiple users. The first user can successfully start Atom. The second user will see an error message: Uncaught Exception: EPERM, operation not permitted /tmp/atom.sock. Obviously, Atom is using a single socket only, but it should be per-user. Is this a known bug or is there a workaround?

Impossible launch on ubuntu through x2go client

Can you reproduce the issue after installing from the package on


I can. I get the same error as the OP. Atom v0.170.0 on Linux Debian 8
