@jugs, not necessarily. The package in community takes some controversial decisions, which are likely to cause subtle issues, e.g.

Also, for some mysterious reason it doesn't work with the linux-lts kernel:

Well I guess now that it's in community this package is dead?

TrialnError commented on 2016-08-11 23:56

Well, this happens if the Maintainer key isn't in your pacman keyring.
And not really belonging here, as the atom package from community isn't AUR.
And problems with the package also cannot be resolved, as it is differently built (everything from source, not really following official build suggestions, unlike the ones from AUR, which use the instructions from the official repo).
Report issues on the bugtracker (or there )

So, with atom now in community, it should be checked what conflicts needs to be added.
atom for sure, but maybe, depending on the installation place, electron and apm too

When I install the package I get:
:: Import PGP key 2048R/A9B6710D760F6617C530746EC847B6AEB0544167, "Nicola Squartini <>", created: 2013-07-27? [Y/n]

Is this normal? On the package site the key is also unknown.

Edit: after a quick IRC chat I said yes, but the atom package crashs on startup for me.

Atom is now officially maintained on the community repository:

Error when installing v1.9.7:

error version not found: text-buffer@9.2.7

TrialnError commented on 2016-08-08 17:08

Dunno what's the cause, but since 1.9.x I have also heavy problems generating the package.
While the process installs apm, the whole thing get stuck. No error messages. Just idling there and doing nothing.

@jugs what problems you have in mind? The package is compiling with no errors, the editor seems to run normally.
