Daily Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Great news for Ubuntu 32bit users who want to give Atom a try! Atom, the open source "hackable text editor for the 21st Century" developed by GitHub, can now be built for 32bit (on Linux). 

As a result, the WebUpd8 Atom PPA was updated so there are now Atom packages for both 32bit and 64bit available in the PPA.



Install Atom text editor in Ubuntu / Linux Mint (32bit + 64bit) via PPA


To add the WebUpd8 Atom PPA and install Atom text editor in Ubuntu, Linux Mint and derivatives (now available for both 32bit and 64bit), use the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/atom
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install atom
(the PPA is available for Ubuntu 14.10, 14.04, 13.10 and 12.04. Ubuntu 12.10 and 13.04 are no longer supported by Canonical!)

If you encounter Node.js related bugs, I recommend using THIS Nodejs PPA.

To report Atom (non-packaging) bugs, grab the source code, etc., see its GitHub page.

Thanks to Joseph Daniel
