Sublime Text is a popular proprietary cross-platform source code editor. This article will demonstrate how to install Sublime Text 3 into Ubuntu or its derivatives such as Linux Mint.

Installation

The personal package archive in which Sublime Text resides must be added to the repository list of the package management system:

root@computer:~# add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-3

The package list file must be updated before Sublime Text can be installed:

root@computer:~# apt update

Sublime Text can be installed from webupd8team using Apt:

root@computer:~# apt --assume-yes install sublime-text-installer

After the installation is completed Sublime Text can be started from the terminal via a binary called subl located in the /usr/bin directory.
