It is really so simple to install Atom Text Editor on PopOS and this tutorial covers the ground on the same process.
First, make sure you add the repository by making use of the following command.
root@linuxhelp:~# add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/atom PPA for Atom text editor: https://atom.io Now available for both 32bit and 64bit! More info, report packaging bugs, feedback, etc.: http://www.webupd8.org/2014/05/install-atom-text-editor-in-ubuntu-via-ppa.html Report non-packaging Atom bugs here: https://github.com/atom/atom/issues More info: https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/ubuntu/atom Press [ENTER] to continue or Ctrl-c to cancel adding it. gpg: keybox '/tmp/tmpj78p1mn6/pubring.gpg' created gpg: /tmp/tmpj78p1mn6/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created gpg: key C2518248EEA14886: public key "Launchpad VLC" imported gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found gpg: Total number processed: 1 gpg: imported: 1 OK
And then you need to update the newly added repository with the following command.
root@linuxhelp:~# apt-get update Hit:1 http://ppa.launchpad.net/system76/pop/ubuntu artful InRelease Hit:2 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu artful-security InRelease Hit:3 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu artful InRelease Hit:4 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu artful-updates InRelease Get:5 http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/atom/ubuntu artful InRelease [15.4 kB] Hit:6 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu artful-backports InRelease Get:7 http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/atom/ubuntu artful/main i386 Packages [624 B] Get:8 http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/atom/ubuntu artful/main amd64 Packages [624 B] Get:9 http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/atom/ubuntu artful/main Translation-en [332 B] Fetched 16.9 kB in 2s (5758 B/s) Reading package lists...
