Description

This is how to install Atom editor on TrueOS.

WARNING: I currently (3/7/2017) cannot get Atom to build correctly. YMMV

Prepare the Environment

  • Open the Update Manager and make sure the system is up to date.
  • Open the AppCafe and install bash, portmaster and libgnome-keyring
    • Or in a terminal and use:
      sudo pkg install bash portmaster libgnome-keyring
      
  • Make a symlink of /usr/local/bin/bash to /bin/bash:
    sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/bash /bin/bash
    
  • Update the ports tree:
    sudo portsnap fetch extract
    
  • Build node4 and npm from ports:
    NOTE: Make sure to enable [X] BUNDLED_SSL option
    sudo portmaster www/node4 www/npm
    
  • Install the chromedriver system-wide:
    npm install chromedriver -g
    
  • Open a terminal and set the default python version for npm to use:
    sudo npm config set python /usr/local/bin/python2 -g
    

Install Atom
