Libsecret dependency missing while trying to install atom on linux scientific


Hello all,

This question is somewhat similar to this one, but there was no solution there yet.

I am trying to install atom on my linux scientific distribution. I followed the instructions on the atom site (in the documentation), which are:
sudo rpm --import
sudo sh -c 'echo -e “[Atom]\nname=Atom Editor\nbaseurl=$basearch\nenabled=1\ngpgcheck=0\nrepo_gpgcheck=1\ngpgkey=” > /etc/yum.repos.d/atom.repo’
sudo yum install atom

But after the last command I get an error saying that the dependency is required. This is the output:
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, security
Setting up Install Process
Atom/signature | 836 B 00:00
Atom/signature | 1.0 kB 00:00 …

–> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: atom-1.24.0-0.1.x86_64 (Atom)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I am not all that experienced with Linux, and for the life of me I can find how to install libsecret on my distribution.

Does someone know how I can complete the atom install?

Many thanks


What happens if you try yum install libsecret?


yum install libsecret
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security
Setting up Install Process
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile

no package found error


So it’s not the immediately obvious one. You should search the package directory to find out what the real name is, then install that.
