@ryanl4321 - Thank you that worked!

@claggierk

~$ which sublime-text
/usr/bin/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.

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

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!

@Neminath
