I am using Ubuntu 14.04 OS. I reinstalled Atom text editor (I installed it by following instructions @ Atom GitHub ). I am using 64 bit version. I lost a lot of features such as, searching specific characters (CTRL+F), settings (packages, themes, etc…CTRL+,), I can no longer change document language, etc…for example if I want to open settings (CTRL+,) it opens empty config file - screenshot:
Well I guess I am switching to Sublime
I’m surprised you had no response on this. Usually things are handled here very quickly.
Anyway, what I would do is delete or rename ~/.atom and try over again. I’ve never heard of any problem like this but crap happens.
Sorry I missed this. I’ve been ramping up on a new job and there has been an overwhelming flood of new information and communication channels to keep track of
As for what happened, how did you reinstall Atom? Typically packages aren’t touched when one installs or reinstalls Atom itself.
The Settings View bug you mention can be corrected by following @mark_hahn’s suggestion. It is a known bug we’re working on.
Again, apologies for not getting back to you
Is ~/.atom a folder where package information is saved?
~/.atom is where a lot of information is stored, not just installed packages.
Thank you guys this worked. Btw, it was just attention caller I would rather using broken Atom than Sublime
Good to know. You aren’t the only one who has used that “threat”. (grin)
There are a zillion posts from people saying, in effect, “if you don’t fix/change this I won’t use Atom”. It always amazes me that people would claim in public that they would base their editor decision on a single feature. Of course in your case in was many features.
