Jetson Nano Atom Editor installation?

Can Atom Editor being installed on the nano. I suspect not just asking if anyone may know. Thanks

I used the following commands below from http://tipsonubuntu.com/2016/08/05/install-atom-text-editor-ubuntu-16-04/

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/atom

then next command

sudo apt update; sudo apt install atom

then following message

Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
E: Unable to locate package atom

the following ubuntu version is installed

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS
Release: 18.04
Codename: bionic

I checked the github for Atom https://github.com/atom/atom/releases/tag/v1.36.1
It appears that the debian package is built for AMD64 – which is a problem because the Nano is built on the ARM64 architecture. Square peg / round hole and all that.

A couple of other notes – in the future, you can use ‘apt-cache search’ to see if a package actually exists in your repositories:
‘apt-cache search atom’

That will let you know if maybe the package exists by a slightly different name (e.g. atom-beta, beta-atom, atomtext, etc…)-

I think your best bet at this point is to try to build it yourself – go to https://atom.io using the chromium browser on your Nano. Just above the download button is a “Build from Source”. Click that link and follow the instructions. Let us know how it goes!

Better install Visual Code Studio --> https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1061109/jetson-nano/whats-the-suitable-develop-tool-on-nano-/post/5373997/#5373997

Is the Atom Editor installed? If you haven’t tried it here:

or use Sublime Text Editor:

then next command

Done.
