All of your packages are stored in your user folder, so if you switch users, you won’t have access to the packages you’ve installed.

so the solution is …


#4

Either don’t switch users, or download any packages you want on your second user account from that account, or copy your .atom/ folder over and then manage the packages on the second account manually. They’re just JavaScript modules, so they’re very small. If you really want, you could create a symbolic link to a canonical .atom/ folder or you could change the ATOM_HOME environment variable to point to the user you want, but if you have multiple people on the same computer it makes the most sense to have separate config folders.
