Unable to open project directory


how to solve the problem


When do you see this error message?


Everytime i open the setting,the red flag just keep poping out warning me about something I don’t understand
I’m new to atom


Is there a .atom folder in your user directory? You may have to set hidden files to visible to see it.


it happened after I updated atom


Do you see the folder I mentioned? Close Atom, rename the folder to atom-backup, then reopen Atom and look at Settings.


so I use mv to rename .atom into what you said,but it won’t work and a new .atom appeared.


That’s what’s supposed to happen. Does the error message appear with a clean .atom folder?


Yep still red poping out


Maybe reinstalling Atom would solve it. I haven’t seen this before. You can move the old .atom folder back. Since all configuration is stored there, there’s no risk of losing information in uninstalling or reinstalling the program.


ok,i see
thanks a lot
