Settings not sticking in latest release .123.0


#1

I just updated ATOM and I noticed that my settings for anything in the settings panel do not stick. This includes fonts, font sizes, and hidden files.


Can't set themes with Base16 Syntax package
#2

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

  • What OS and version are you running?
  • Do you have the React editor enabled?
  • Can you reproduce the issue after completely exiting Atom and restarting using atom --safe?
  • Do you have write access to the ~/.atom directory as the user that Atom is running under?

#3

What OS and version are you running?
=> osx 10.9.4 all updates installed

Do you have the React editor enabled?
=> yes

Can you reproduce the issue after completely exiting Atom and restarting using atom --safe?
=> running in safe mode does not fix it

Do you have write access to the ~/.atom directory as the user that Atom is running under?
=> yes


#4

ok, this is really weird… after a detailed review if I alter my settings to the correct theme and fonts like soo…

and then I install and uninstall a package i.e…

my setting stick…

thoughts?


#5

ok, I have tried purging ALL of my packages… NO LUCK


#6

I don’t have any suggestions, no … I would suspect that it is some sort of permissions issue, but you’ve already answered that.

Can you file a bug on the settings-view package and link it back here?


#7

Done:: https://github.com/atom/settings-view/issues/160


#8

I suppose one other possibility, if permissions really isn’t the problem, is a package, or even an external process, that messes with the .atom folder or a file therein, maybe locking files for writing etc… that kind of thing.


#9

so far my settings have stuck, but I am not sure if a package caused it or not.

could the cson file be the culprit somehow?


#10

I have exactly the same issue in the latest .123 release. I am running the latest OS X 10.9.4 on a rMBP.


#11

And I can confirm my answer is also “yes” to each one of Leedohm’s initial set of questions.
