Need help installing this package


#1

Hi, i would like to install this package but have no clue as to how to do so. Help would be appreciated. Here is a link to it: https://github.com/atom/terminal

Thanks.


#2

You can always use apm install terminal.


#3

it is not a published package, when i tried that it says there are no releases available


#4

To install a package directly from GitHub …

Clone the repo into your ~/.atom/packages directory.

Run apm install from within the new package directory.

That’s all.


#5

This is the error I get when I did it. Any thoughts?

#6

The reason why the package isn’t published is because it is not supported and hasn’t been maintained. There are going to be a number of these kinds of issues attempting to use it. If you’re not used to debugging things on your own, then you’re going to have a hard time.

So that we don’t duplicate effort, what have you tried in order to fix it yourself so far?


#7

I feel like its a problem with pty.js because I’ve tried to install a different package which includes it and I get the same issue. (They were both terminal packages for atom).


#8

Could very well be. It looks like pty.js hasn’t been actively maintained in a few months.


#9

By curiosity, have you tried https://github.com/webBoxio/atom-term2, it is well maintained and works nicely.
