Aptana sometimes hangs on Mac OSX after workspace change
I love Aptana and use it heavily, however I started to have weird and annoying problems - every now and then Aptana process hangs in the background and I can't start it or kill the process - only solution I found is to restart my Mac. I use MacBook Pro with Mavericks on it, and I have latest Aptana release. I also use SVN plugin created for Eclipse studio. The first symptom I have is another Aptana icon appearing on my Dock bar, one is permanently present there and suddenly another one appears - I think it happens on Workspace change. I can no longer switch to Aptana using original icon, I have to use the one that appeared afterwards. After I quit Aptana instance represented by the new icon, I can't activate it any more and I have an Aptana process that I can't kill, and it won't show if I type ps -A in terminal. If anybody has any clue on how this happens, I'd like to avoid it - just don't tell me not to switch my workspaces since I depend on it - I'm a professional web developer working for several companies and workspaces are a way to organise my work If anyone knows how to kill this aptana instance, that would be a temporary solution too - killing it from Activity monitor or Force Quitting does not help, I just get a warning that I'll "lose any unsaved changes" but after I click on Force Quit nothing happens - the process is still there. And yes, this does not happen with any other app on my mac - thanks for asking :D Thanks, Viktor
For anyone that might be experiencing this issue - here's what came out in the end I accidentally found out that if I close Chrome, hanging Aptana instance also exits and I can normally start it again. So try to shut down Chrome and the problem might be solved. This applies to Aptana Studio 188.8.131.52308081805 - I have yet to install the latest version but it might be the same thing. I'm wondering has this anything to do with Java? Only thing I see in common
Here is a simple way to kill it: $ ps -ef | grep Aptana then, kill the process $ kill -9 <PID> substitute with the actual process ID hope this helps.
This is a bug, and according to https://jira.appcelerator.org/browse/APSTUD-8275 it will be fixed in release 3.6.1.
Aptana's bug tracker marks this as fixed for release 3.6.1: https://jira.appcelerator.org/browse/APSTUD-8264 However, it was marked fixed in August, and the most recent release available for download is still 3.6.0. (Anyone with Aptana have an idea when the fix will be released?)
