Users are having problems due to the China firewall that forces them to jump through some significant hoops.
User had to use a VPN to download the AtomSetup-x64.exe because of being blocked by it.
Here are some quotes
I can’t install packages.
It seems that connection to ATOM download server is forbidden by GFW (Great Firewall of China).
So I cloned their source from github, and installed with npm install. it works for me.
Some module is missing
When restart ATOM, it told me that autocomplete-asciidoc and asciidoc-image-helper could not work because some module is missing. Maybe I should update my ATOM to lastest version.
The missing module is:
(1) for autocomplete-asciidoc
Cannot find module 'lodash’
Cannot find module ‘season’
(2) for asciidoc-image-helper
Cannot find module ‘atom-space-pen-views’
I update ATOM to version 1.21.0-beta0 as it’s recommanded, they are still missing.
As the ATOM told me which modules are missing, I go to the required folder and installed them.
Is there a preferred method for those from China for installing and setting up Atom?
Can this be overcome by Atom team adding a script to be ran, after downloading and installing the preferred flavor of Atom?
