Atom has a nice website where we can find much more information about the program.
There immediately, we can find two buttons where they meet, two options to download Atom. In the first place, we have the .DEB package that is for distributions like Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint or ElementaryOS. However, below we will have the option to download the .RPM package that is suitable for CentOS, OpenSuse, RHEL, and Fedora that is our case.
Once we have downloaded the corresponding RPM package, we will be able to start the installation. If we use the
rpm command, we will have to deal with the dependencies and it is not advisable. So we will use
dnf that does manage them.
