It's ok just with this version 3 (13/11/2016).
You should adapt with your newest version.
I've choiced to execute Sublime Text with "st3" command.
Go to https://www.sublimetext.com/3
Here, i download "sublime_text_3_build_3126_x64.tar.bz2" in /home/Téléchargements (Be carreful with folders, i'm french ;-) )
Don't forget : Tab completion is an extremely helpful feature in nearly any command-line environment !
cd /home/$USERNAME/Téléchargements/ in french (or cd /home/$USERNAME/Downloads/ in english)
tar -xvjf sublime_text_3_build_3126_x64.tar.bz2
sudo mv sublime_text_3 /opt/
sudo ln -s /opt/sublime_text_3 /usr/local/sublime_text_3
sudo ln -s /usr/local/sublime_text_3/sublime_text /usr/local/bin/st3
sudo rm sublime_text_3_build_3126_x64.tar.bz2
Now, try "st3" command

I've wrote something to automate the installation of Sublime Text 2 on Debian with Gnome 3 - it handles everything: setting the icon, creating install directory, does not require root at all and it even downloads it for you automatically:
I've tested it on Debian Stretch but it should work on any FreeDesktop-compliant desktop not just Gnome 3
I've also made a blog entry on the finishing touch to installation (getting it into menu's etc): https://ejectdisc.org/2017/09/06/sublime-text-2-on-debian-linux/
