Extra space appearing between lines, causing cursor and line mismatch


#1

Alright, so I’m running ubuntu 14.04, and atom 1.19.6 x64 with an nvidia quadro m2000.
Everything was working perfectly until today; I finally managed to install the nvidia 375 drivers AND add a second monitor to my system.

In atom I’m using the Hydrogen package for python, which i suspect might have something to do with the problem.

Now when I’m working in a file for a while, suddenly there’s a shift and a bunch of seeming whitespace appears near the top of the file, causing the line numbers no longer to sync up with code. It goes away if i close and open the file, but it reappears after a few minutes.

Has anyone had a similar problem before? I tried searching but couldn’t find anything similar, I’m not sure how to fix this or even what is causing it. I assume it has something to do with my new driver/monitor setup + maybe the hydrogen package.

The new monitor is also a higher resolution, and there might be a scaling thing going on

Does the issue happen when you have Hydrogen disabled?


#3

This looks like the issue that was fixed in Atom 1.19.7. Can you still reproduce it if you update?


#4

(update to version 1.19.7 or to version 1.20.0 (2017.09.13) ?)


#5

Either. Beta would also work fine.

I updated to 1.20, seems fine for now, thanks :slight_smile:
