Atom.io downloads only amd64 version on i386 Ubuntu


#1

So I have a couple people that are using Ubuntu 14.04 32 bit version and when they go to http://www.atom.io and click the download button it sends them the amd64 bit version. Is there a way to download the 32 bit version instead? They are using firefox 34.0

As far as I know, there’s no 32bit version yet. Please correct me if I’m wrong


#3

They got it installed by building it from source.

So I guess if there isn’t an actual 32 bit version yet then would it be easier for people to read a announcement or put in the readme so others know to build it from source?

From the README under Installation Instructions:

Debian Linux (Ubuntu)

Currently only a 64-bit version is available.
