1. Ensuring that Fedora 35 Workstation is up to date
Before proceeding let us ensure that our workstation is up to date. Use this command to achieve this:
sudo dnf update
2. Installing Atom
Adding official package repository to your system by running the following commands:
sudo rpm --import https://packagecloud.io/AtomEditor/atom/gpgkey sudo sh -c 'echo -e "[Atom]\nname=Atom Editor\nbaseurl=https://packagecloud.io/AtomEditor/atom/el/7/\$basearch\nenabled=1\ngpgcheck=0\nrepo_gpgcheck=1\ngpgkey=https://packagecloud.io/AtomEditor/atom/gpgkey" > /etc/yum.repos.d/atom.repo'
Now update the package cache and install the package using dnf
dnf check-update sudo dnf install -y atom
Alternatively, you can download the Atom .rpm package and install it directly:
sudo dnf install -y atom.x86_64.rpm
3. Launching atom
To launch Atom, search from activities menu.
