Atom dependencies on openSUSE

An RPM package is provided for download on the Atom website, however, installing it on openSUSE Tumbleweed won’t install all of its dependencies. Running it from the console will give:

/usr/share/atom/atom: error while loading shared libraries: libgconf-2.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

According to the error message installing gconf2 will be required too.

sudo zypper install gconf2

After that Atom should work on openSUSE.
