So I am trying to install Atom on my Chromebook running Xubuntu 14.04 (64 bit). I downloaded the .deb from atom.io, but when I ran
sudo dpkg -i atom-amd64.deb, it returned:
Selecting previously unselected package atom. (Reading database ... 138331 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack atom-amd64.deb ... Unpacking atom (1.4.0) ... dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of atom: atom depends on gvfs-bin; however: Package gvfs-bin is not installed. dpkg: error processing package atom (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils (0.22-1ubuntu1) ... Processing triggers for mime-support (3.54ubuntu1.1) ... Errors were encountered while processing: atom
After this, I did
sudo apt-get install gvfs-bin, which returned:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these: The following packages have unmet dependencies: gvfs-bin : Depends: gvfs-common (= 1.20.1-1ubuntu1) but 1.20.3-0ubuntu1.1 is to be installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
sudo apt-get -f install said all dependencies were correct and asked me if I wanted to remove Atom while running
sudo apt-get install gfvs-common returned that it was already installed to the latest version.
I am also having trouble installing clang-3.5, where it returned that it needs some libs.
Edit -- I've switched to GalliumOS on my Chromebook, which is natively meant to run on Chromebooks and it's worked much better. I'll leave this question up in case if anyone else needs it and thanks for all the responses.
