Atom takes between three and five minutes to start on my Mac, during which the entire computer freezes/hangs and is not usable. I have not experienced this issue with any other applications on my Mac.
- Atom version: 1.0.2
- OS X version: 10.10.4
- Happens every time I start Atom, even with the
- Everything behaves normally after Atom has finished starting
The computer hangs because starting Atom causes
/System/Library/CoreServices/launchservicesd to go to > 100% CPU until Atom has finished starting.
After seeing the
launchservicesd behavior, I tried resetting the Launch Services database using the following command, which seemed to have no effect:
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -domain local -domain system -domain user
This is frustrating to say the least.
Is there anything I can try?
