Permission issue when running Julia on Atom


Hello everyone,

I’ve been using Atom for a while, both for text editing and scripting. Lately I decided to check out Julia on Atom, to see how it can be used within this great environment. The scripts appear great, but I haven’t managed to get the console working with the language. I’ve installed the packages julia-client and julia-language on Atom, and after configuring the location of the Julia binary, I encountered an error when firing up the kernel:
Julia could not be started
_ We tried to launch Julia from:_
This path can be changed in the settings.
/bin/sh: 1: /home/synesius/julia/bin: Permission denied

I’ve checked all the permissions for that folder and even after I set them to free read and write for everyone, the issue persists. Note that the language runs perfectly fine using the REPL.

I’m suspecting there is another underlying issue that I’ve failed to pinpoint. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
