I have Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and installed Atom following this post. Upon launching from the icon, the window opens but remains blank and then crashes within few seconds. On terminal I get:

$ atom
/usr/bin/atom: line 195: 30027 Illegal instruction     (core dumped) nohup "$ATOM_PATH" --executed-from="$(pwd)" --pid=$$ "$@" > "$ATOM_HOME/nohup.out" 2>&1

    Does this happen also if you install through other sources? I mean, have you tried the deb package in their website (atom.io) or maybe installing via flatpak? Apr 29 at 12:48

I had the same problem. Atom worked after uninstalling it sudo apt purge atom and installing it with snap sudo snap install atom --classic

I had a similar problem (On Kubuntu 22.04). In my case the problem was fixed by executing Atom with the --no-sandbox parameter. Like this:

atom --no-sandbox

I think it's a problem with Electron, because a similar error occurred in another Electron-App. I took the solution from this GitHub issue: https://github.com/ebkr/r2modmanPlus/issues/735 (I know that this isn't atom, but this has shown up if I searched the error)

In my case it's also showing some errors and asking me for the user-password, I just canceled it and closed the errors and Atom just worked flawlessly.

I hope that helps.
