Install Atom editor in LXC


On my NAS installing a LXC linux container.
After that try install Atom-editor:

sudo apt-get install wget
wget “” -O atom-amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i atom-amd64.deb
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo apt-get install libxss1 libasound2

Find this info here:

Can follow the above steps without problem, but when try type: ‘atom’ nothing happens.
Anyway is there a solution running atom in a LXC container?

The container i used is ubuntu 16.04 installed on Qnap NAS in Container Station


People have managed to do this with LXC 1.0, however it is much easier to do so in LXD.
Project Crostini uses LXD (and not LXC 1.0).

It appears that the Qnap NAS Container Station does not support yet LXD, which means some extra work to get things to work.

For completeness, here is how you would set up Atom to run in a LXD container on your desktop computer.

Hi @simos,

Thanks for your answer.
Yes, Qnap Container Station works only with LXC and Docker, not with LXD :frowning:
