Issues on CentOS 7


These are my notes for installation on CentOS7

  1. There isn’t a download link on the main atom page for Linux. You have to read the notes on “source” installation to get the RPM link, even though I am not downloading the source.
  2. RPM doesn’t have proper dependencies. Should have dependencies for gtk2 GConf2 libXtst
  3. The default font on CentOS 7 is proportional font. What font should be installed and how do you do it? Probably another RPM dependency required.
  4. None of the menu items under “Help” work. I imagine this is because I don’t have a internet browser installed, but there is no error message or anything. Just silence. The only thing that works is Help->Release Notes
  5. I’m using this for C++. I don’t see any features that let me navigate the call tree or dependencies, like “go to declaration” or similar. My friend has this on his Ubunto box, so I’m not sure why I don’t get it
  6. I’ve got Autocomplete Clang installed, but when I hit Ctrl-Space, I get a list of every word in the current file, not methods for the object.

Issue with Autocomplete-Clang on CentOS

Typically these kinds of things are entered as separate topics so that the readers don’t have to wade through bunches of conversation on what they’re not interested in to find what they are interested in. This is why Discourse has the single-thread design it does. So, I’m going to close this topic and reply to it as new topics to split out the separate conversations.
