Problem with Atom on start up

I have tried looking for my problem without success.

I downloaded Atom to help with my Python course, all was going well, until one day I opened it and had a message that said something along the lines of “clang is not installed on your system and PlatformIO needs it” then 3 options, 1 to install clang, 2 remind later, 3 discard code.

No matter which option I chose it moves to install PlatformIO IDE installing, then sticks on Atom dependencies and never completes.


I raised this question on Atom support and they have directed me here for help. I have tried searching on here for an answer as well, with no joy. can anyone help, please

I cant use Atom whilst it is doing this, I have tried uninstalling Atom and re installing but the same issue arises. I am new to Atom and I am lost with this issue.

Can anyone help.
