I’ve been running Atom in Ubuntu 16.04 for a while, but I started having crippling issues a few weeks ago. Atom just stopped working one day. I opened it, and the program came up, but as soon as I tried to open a file, save, do anything, the Atom froze and crashed. Since then, I haven’t been able to get it to work. I’ve tried multiple versions, 1.19.2 (both through Ubuntu Software and downloading the package), and a few other versions.
For a while, I was getting an error message:
But now I get almost nothing. I can click the “Install” button, but besied the button looking like it was clicked but then doing nothing. I can click the button over and over and nothing happens.
I’m dual-booting Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04 on an ASUS UX31A with a Crucial 512GB SSD, 1.9GHz i7 with Intel HD4000 Graphics, 4GB RAM.
