Crashed with archlinux


Hi there, i’m installed atom from source (1.8.0), but unfortunatley when i open it, the window freexe and then crash. But after that im using aur for install atom and it works perfectly. What can make atom crash? Can you help me? Thanks!


It’s the version of Electron that is used in 1.8.0. It’s not compatible with the latest version of FreeType2, so it crashes. If you build any Atom from 1.9.0 onward (like the beta binary in AUR), it works just fine.


Ok, I knew this problem before but i think it was fixed. So next version will be fix this problem? Thanks anyway!


Yep. I’ve been happily using Atom 1.9.0 on my Arch machine since I started using Atom.
