How to install packages in portable mode behind proxy in ubuntu


#1

I’m using a school computer, with Ubuntu installed. I’m not allowed to install any software, so I have to download the portable version (tar.gz), with shell command not installed. How do I install packages behind school proxy network without command line?

When a binary isn’t added to your path, you can still activate it by using its full path name (e.g. /home/halfer53/atom/resources/app/apm/bin/apm). Additionally, you can add commands to your .bashrc file to add things to your path and create aliases, both of which would be able to replicate having the APM binary in your path.

You can also install packages from within Atom, on the Install tab of the Settings pane. I usually do it graphically because it’s easy to compare what packages do.
