Hang on launch, MacOS 10.9.2


#1

Blank window comes up on launch. Application menu items unresponsive except for “About”.

Eventually a dialog appears, saying:

Editor is not responding

The editor is not responding. Would you like to force close it or just keep waiting?

Keeping waiting doesn’t seem to help.


#2

Oops, omitted the version of Atom, which is 0.69.0.


#3

You might want to try moving your ~/.atom directory somewhere temporarily. If that doesn’t fix your problem let me know.


#4

Sadly, didn’t work. Now when I open the app, no window appears at all and the only application menu I see is “Atom” with the items: Reload, Close Window, Toggle Dev Tools, and Quit.

Choosing Quit gives me a blank white window and the “Editor is not responding” dialog. Choosing the other options gives me an “uncaughtException” dialog box. (It tells me I’m too new of a user to upload the image, but if it will be helpful I can upload elsewhere.)


#5

I’m having the same issue. I was installing some new packages. After a while I quit and encountered that problem.

I’ve tried moving the .atom folder and deleting the app itself and re-installing but it’s still unresponsive.


#6

The error I’m getting is:

TypeError: Object #<Object> has no method 'focusedWindow' at submenu.click (/Applications/Atom.app/Contents/Resources/app/src/browser/application-menu.js:139:37) at MenuItem.click (/Applications/Atom.app/Contents/Resources/browser/api/lib/menu-item.js:38:18) at delegate.executeCommand (/Applications/Atom.app/Contents/Resources/browser/api/lib/menu.js:78:31)


#7

It came back to life. I’m not sure how or why, I opened a file with Atom and it fired up, so then I put my old .atom folder back and it still works. Crazy world.
