These instructions are now on the Package Control site:

http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/package_control/installation#ST3

@avoidwork

It appears to install for me, as I can see the options under the Preferences, but it's not showing up like it used to with ST2 when I do cmd+shift+p. Is there another step?

@evansagge

This worked perfectly for me.

@pkillian

Works perfectly here too; thanks!

@nomopo

Sorry but i have LUbuntu, and i can't install it, can you help me? thanks.
I haven't ~/Library/ directory.

@Blendertom

I'm new to programming so don't know much about using the command line in Sublime Text.
I'm following the instructions on the Package Control site, but I get this error
I get a syntax error, even though I copy pasted the code.

@wbond

@Blendertom The instructions on the site are for executing in your terminal. If you need some help, feel free to open an issue.

@nomopo On Linux you need to cd to ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/

@svassr

For windows make sure to install git from official git website instead to run it in command line instead of using TortoiseGit or whatever.
Here is a good howto for newbies like me : http://goo.gl/t9yNz

@douglasb

Thanks! Worked like a charm for me. The instructions on wbond didn't go into enough detail for me.

@jiehanzheng

Great... Thanks!

@picwellwisher12pk

Ctrl+Shit+P works. but the list of repositories does not come up for >Install

@JohnTheodore

I am in the same boat as picwellwisher12pk. I'm on the latest ubuntu release, with build ST 3021.

I did rm -rf ~/.config/sublime-text-3; Started ST3, put in my license key. Then...

john@paloalto:~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages$ git clone https://github.com/wbond/sublime_package_control.git "Package Control"

I restarted sublime. Then type control + shift + P, then type Package Control: Install package. It autocompletes it for me, when I hit enter though... nothing happens. No list of packages/repositories.

When I do Package Control: List Package, it only has 1, 2.0.0alpha3 wbond.. etc etc.

@JohnTheodore

nevermind, I found the answer in the bug reports. ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/Package Control/Package Control.sublime-settings this file needs to have the git_binary variable set to '/usr/bin/git'; This should be in the install FAQ somewhere for linux users. It was tricky to find the solution.

(reference: wbond/package_control#375 )

@bierlich

JohnTheodore: Thanks for writing your solution! Helped me.

@laurenproctor

Excellent. Thank you! This worked perfectly.

@matynz

I tried what JohnTheodore said but I still can't install Package control on Sublime text 3 on ubuntu 12.04

@ckoulatsi

I followed the instructions and tried it on the standalone 64 bit windows version and it doesn't seem to work.

@teradyne

svassr's comment and link above worked for me on windows 2008 x64.
I had to install in AppRoaming\Sublime Text 3\Packages folder as the blog post in the link states.
Thanks!

@ben-walters

I have installed as per the instructions, yet when i hit cmd + sh + P, install does not display!?

OSX 10.8.4

Help?

@ahmadajmi

Thanks

@AKFourSeven

Hi, I tried JohnTheodore's fix on my Ubuntu 12.04 and it work for for the first installs of packages but then it started popping up a message saying "there are no packages available for installation right now".

Can anyone help at all?

@QuantumInformation

For me the git clone command hangs on windows

@Ardakilic

Works prefectly here, installed snippets already, thanks!

@benandolga

I used to have Sublime text 2 but few days ago found that I cannot open it. Later I found that there is a new version which is Sublime text 3. So I tried to migrated plugins but always had errors. So, I uninstalled Sublime text 2. Now I tried to followed the instruction on the wbond.net and I just lost. I am not familiar with the Git and how to use it while I have one now. Is there any simple ways how to install Control Package for Sublime Text 3 Beta?

@tspeigner

Worked great for me, after I read through the instructions. Thanks much for the work

@paulbjensen

Thank you, this worked out of the box.

@WishMaster2310

Thanks. you made me happy)

@mnx2013

thanks so much

@ahmad-sa3d

Thanks it works perfectly

@wbond

Just so people know, these instructions are out-of-date. ST3 support was added to the stable release over a year ago, and the branch referenced here no longer even exists. I also highly recommend not checking out with git unless you are prepared to help debug development work. Almost all users should just follow the instructions at:

https://packagecontrol.io/installation

@bytebrain

That link is dead? The whole domain is dead?

@silverlight513

This worked great for me. Thanks!
