When I swapped to Elementary recently, I had to find a replacement for the included Scratch text editor and decided to continue using Atom.
Open a terminal and using the following commands (entering your password when prompted):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/atom sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install atom
... and thats all, it will now show up in slingshot.
Remove Scratch (Optional)
sudo apt-get purge scratch-text-editor
Setting Your default Editor
If you didn't remove Scratch and you want to make Atom your default editor:
- Click on Applications (slingshot)
- Click on System Settings
- Click on Applications
- Click on the Text Editor Drop Down and choose your default editor.
That is all.
