I’m running on Debian 8 (LMDE - Linux Mint Debian Edition) and uninstalled 1.5.4 in order to try the Atom IDE. I’ve installed the .deb package for 1.21 beta and get all the menus and a blank window. If I choose Help > About: nothing. Other commands: nothing. File > New Window creates a new window, but nothing is ever displayed in the main editor window area, and I mean nothing other than the background.
Maybe that fix has been undone, but I tried the diagnostic suggestion * (
atom --foreground) from the topic on v1.19 beta but it doesn’t appear to be the issue (or I’m not doing it right):
$ /usr/share/atom-beta/atom --foreground bash: cannot set terminal process group (-1): Inappropriate ioctl for device bash: no job control in this shell
Any ideas? I’d like to try out the Atom IDE, but ok without Atom so not a pressing issue for me.
