Do the commands above install both the stable and dev version of sublime text 2?

The following extra packages will be installed:
libgio-cil sublime-text-2-dev

The following NEW packages will be installed:
libgio-cil sublime-text-2 sublime-text-2-dev

Here is the commands to install dev version
$ sudo apt-get install sublime-text-2-dev

ajitdev commented May 2, 2013

@ryanl4321 - Thank you that worked!

~$ which sublime-text

~$ ll $(!!)
ll $(which sublime-text)
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Jul 16 2012 /usr/bin/sublime-text -> sublime-text-2*

Although you "apt-get install sublime-text" ... sublime-text-2 is the actual binary.

nbpro commented Jun 28, 2013

this works for me
$sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-2

$ sudo apt-get install sublime-text-2-beta

[apt-get install sublime-text] works fine.

pdxbug commented Nov 28, 2013

None of these work for me... Added the repository and sublime sublime-text sublime-text-2 and sublime-text-2-beta doesn't download anything. Receive Unable to locate package...

Edit: need to do an "apt-get update" then "apt-get install sublime-text" works

sudo apt-get install sublime-text
Reading package lists... Done

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install sublime-text-2-dev

@puntofisso is right only apt-get install sublime-text works for me

I'm having trouble installing sublime text 2 from their website onto Linux, Ubuntu. I tried many of the examples above and below and I get Errors and things Not Found. After downloading sublime text and when trying to open it the application isn't found. I don't know what to do with the package setup and sublime plug in. I'd love to get sublime's text editor opened and running. HELP! would be greatly appreciated!

@nbpro its worked for me thanks..............

thanks..@devudilip, it fixed my problem and worked for me..!!
