Ubuntu Bionic Beaver development branch 18.04 introduces artifacts into the fonts of Atom 1.23.3 (image below). Installing Atom 1.25.0-beta2 solves the font issue, but introduces other issues with performance and crashes. Does anyone know if there are specific file(s) I can replace in my Atom 1.23.3 installation that are included in the 1.25.0-beta2 release that will solve the font issue without having to run the beta edition of Atom or causing additional issues?
I am running an HP 15-ay039wm laptop that was shipped with Windows 10. I have been running LInux Ubuntu 17.10 and Atom 1.23.3 with no issues for a few weeks now.
The same font rendering issue appears in the Discord desktop client for Linux, but not in Google Chrome, GIMP, LibreOffice, Enpass, Dropbox, the Linux GUI or GNOME software.
