I want to install atom text editor and have downloaded it but I don't understand how apt-get works. I've typed sudo apt-get install atom-amd64 but it say it can't find it. Helpl?
Thanks in advance

There is a lot of information on the web about how to use apt-get. Be aware though, that the instructions on the Atom Editor for Debian page suggest that you upgrade libc6 if you are running wheezy (you have posted in the Crunchbang thread, so I guess you aren't using jessie sources).
Upgrading libc6 is almost certain to lead to a broken system!
@leNoah: I'm assuming you downloaded a .deb file. Another way to install .deb files is to use gdebi from the command line:
sudo gdebi pkgname.deb
gdebi is a bit easier to use and a bit more noob-friendly if you run into dependency issues. If you don't have gdebi, (you should if you're running BunsenLabs), you can install it with:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gdebi --or-- sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install gdebi
Re: ohnonot's suggestion...bluefish, geany, and medit are nice GUI text editors. You already have geany if you're running CrunchBang or BunsenLabs since it's the default GUI text editor.
