Installation instructions:

The latest Atom builds get added to the COPR repositories, so installing them on Fedora and CentOS systems should now cause too many problems.

All you need to do is install the copr plugin, add the copr repository, update the local repository index and install the atom package. While Fedora 22 has adopted DNF, Fedora 21 and CentOS 7 still use the good old yum, as the default package manager.

How to install Atom on 64 bit Fedora 22 systems:

$ sudo dnf install dnf-plugins-core
$ sudo dnf copr enable helber/atom
$ sudo dnf update
$ sudo dnf install atom

Optional, to remove atom, do:

$ sudo dnf remove atom

How to install Atom on 64 bit Fedora 21 and CentOS 7 systems:

$ sudo yum install yum-plugin-copr
$ sudo yum copr enable helber/atom
$ sudo yum update
$ sudo yum install atom

Optional, to remove atom, do:

$ sudo yum remove atom
