Failure to load file. 'Atom.getUserWorkingDirPath' is not a function


I have OSX El Capitan and I installed several packages including linter, minimap, open-in-browser and terminal-plus. since then, each time I launch Atom I have an error message saying ‘Failed to load /Users/iplab/.atom/’ and ‘atom.getUserWorkingDirPath is not a function’. Does anyone already encountered this issue and know how to solve it?


Have you followed the suggestions in the Debugging document? Also, could you give the following information?

  • Which version of Atom are you using?
  • Can you reproduce the issue after completely exiting Atom and restarting using atom --safe?
  • What are the contents of your (I suspect there is a call to the nonexistent function atom.getUserWorkingDirPath in there.)
