"New Terminal" does not work

I clicked on Atom tool bar New Terminal button and this error message came up:

For more info check out the docs: https://nuclide.io/docs/features/terminal

Error starting process:

Error: Cannot find module 'C:\Users\zpan\.atom\packages\atom-ide-ui\node_modules\nuclide-prebuilt-libs\pty\build\pty-node-v64-win32-x64\pty.node'

Tried closing Atom and uninstalling and installing atom-ide-ui using “apm”. No use.

I Googled pty-node-v64-win32-x64 and found this release page: https://github.com/facebook-atom/nuclide-prebuilt-libs/releases

I downloaded this file from the page: pty-node-v64-win32-x64.tar.gz

Closed Atom. Extracted files into the folder “pty-node-v64-win32-x64” and copy-pasted the folder into: C:\Users\zpan.atom\packages\atom-ide-ui\node_modules\nuclide-prebuilt-libs\pty\build\

Restarted Atom.

Tried New Terminal again and now this error message showed up instead:

For more info check out the docs: https://nuclide.io/docs/features/terminal

Error starting process:

Error: A dynamic link library (DLL) initialization routine failed.


Searched the error message online and found this page:

It seems I need to rebuild the native Node addon for Electron, the steps are outlined in the docs. However, the steps assume I have “npm” which I don’t.

Can someone help how to proceed from here?

atom-ide-ui is unmaintained (and completly separate from Juno). The update to Atom 1.39 broke all terminal libraries, and I think that Juno’s terminal is the only one that’s working (although there have been some bug reports coming in with the release of Atom 1.40…)

Thanks for the info! I’m on Atom 1.40. Guess I just need to wait for a fix then…

Meanwhile I’m using atom-terminal-powershell to get by since I’m on Windows. It’ll open a standalone new window when Ctrl-Shift-T is pressed, so it’s not ideal for the workflow. Works as a substitute while I wait for the fix… :slight_smile:

Following your info I found these online. Guess I shouldn’t be holding my breath for any fix in near future then…
