Newbie: install issue


Hi all,

when I try to test quick Start app under ubuntu 12.04 I get this message after the npm start command:

baptiste@baptiste-MSI-NOTEBOOK-CR610:~$ npm start

> electron-quick-start@1.0.0 start /home/baptiste
> electron main.js

electron: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
npm ERR! weird error 127
npm WARN This failure might be due to the use of legacy binary "node"
npm WARN For further explanations, please read
npm ERR! not ok code 0

I tried to include quite everything to the PATH variable but it doesn’t sole the problem :

baptiste@baptiste-MSI-NOTEBOOK-CR610:~$ $PATH
bash: /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/home/baptiste:/home/baptiste/Téléchargements/electron-v0.36.5-linux-ia32:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu:/sys/bus:/usr/include:/usr/lib

Any ideas??



Hey man,

try running this on your terminal, sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386

tell me if it worked.


Got the same “weird” error 127… sorry it doesn’t work :frowning: :wink:
Let’s try something else guys !! :slight_smile:



Mind setting up a Teamviewer session Baptiste?



Sorry but what is Teamviewer and how do I manage setting up such a session? (I didn’t see any refrence to Teamviewer in the docs…)



Hey man,

Teamviewer is a way that I can view what you’re doing in realtime and possibly help you out.

Teamviewer is 3rd party application, not related to Atom/Electron in any way.

You can download it via Teamviewer’s site (quick google should help) and PM me the ID/Password it gives you.



ok, I download and install this right now !!


sorry it Took a while, I was interrupted… my ID is 300 016 637 how do you send an MP?


Click on my user and there should be a message button.


your “properties” pop’s up but there’s no message button…


Just sent you a test message.


I must leave anyway, many thanks, do you have any idea when we could do this remote session (GMT+1) time?



I don’t see your message anywhere…


Very strange.

Contact me via email tomorrow around 2/3PM (3/4PM your time) at


ok, thanks,
