Uncaught Error: spawn EACCES

/private/var/folders/p3/68znhr6n61l1x5b4fgf98vs400__yv/T/AppTranslocation/B46321E4-BCDD-4BEA-8879-12DDA3B3DC7D/d/Atom.app/Contents/Resources/app/src/buffered-process.js:392

I’m not even sure where that directory is going to.
Here is the Stack Trace:

A friend said it might be a bug in atom itself. Luckily I can just use processing for the time being.


#2

In what context are you seeing the error?

Since the error message mentions app translocation: are you running Atom from somewhere other than the Applications folder?


#3

That might’ve fixed it.
I say that because that was the last thing I tried yesterday and it breaks randomly. Although I just tried installing everything again and in the right file location to see if that fixes it, and it works now. I see more stuff going on so that looks good.

Hopefully, this stays working. If it doesn’t then I’ll be back lol.

Thanks.
