Atom is an awesome text editor. And, to a certain point in time, it worked excellently on my Ubuntu machines. However, something broke (I’m guessing, with some update to either Atom or nautilus?), and I cannot open individual files anymore from nautilus, the Ubuntu file manager!
See video on YouTube for demonstration of this behavior: https://youtu.be/uTKoIEkTrKc-
What I have tried:
atom --clear-window-statein terminal
mv ~/.atom ~/.atom-backup
sudo apt remove --purge atom* && sudo apt install atom
- any combination of the above 3
- install on a machine previously without Atom
How can I fix this? Please, halp!
- Opening a file in Atom from terminal seems to work fine, i.e.
- All three of my Ubuntu machines are running Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS with all the latest updates
P.S. I was tempted to write “Feature request: ability to open files!” for the title, but restrained myself,
