I have tried installing Atom editor on Ubuntu 14.04 . Whenever I installed it, either by downloading the
/.deb or by adding this
ppa:webupd8team/atom, I cannot start Atom without sudo.
It shows the following error on terminal while not starting with
/usr/bin/atom: line 104: /home/myhome/.atom/nohup.out: Permission denied (atom:3947): IBUS-WARNING **: The owner of /home/myhome/.config/ibus/bus is not root!
I also tried installing with non-root access through the following command:
sudo dpkg --install --force-not-root --root=$HOME atom-amd64.deb
It shows the following error:
dpkg: error: unable to access dpkg status area: No such file or directory
But it works if I remove the non-root parameters
Anyone knows how to install Atom with non-root access on Ubuntu successfully?
