Cannot start Sublime Text 2 on Lubuntu 12.04

Cannot start Sublime Text 2 on Lubuntu 12.04

Postby p3k on Sun Apr 28, 2013 10:35 pm

I downloaded the Sublime Text 2 package, untar’d it and double-clicked the sublime_text binary... nothing happend.

Thus, I tried to open it from the shell and got this:
Code: Select all
$ ./sublime_text
bash: ./sublime_text: cannot execute binary file

Well, maybe I need sudo...?
Code: Select all
$ sudo ./sublime_text
[sudo] password for miniand:
./sublime_text: 1: ./sublime_text: Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")")

Let’s check with ldd:
Code: Select all
$ ldd ./sublime_text
   not a dynamic executable

OY! Is that due to my somewhat exotic configuration of Lubuntu 12.04 LTS on an Android Mini PC?

I have no idea, so please help me. I will paste any necessary lines from the configuration/logs here, just let me know what you need.

Cheers,

Eh, short question: your android mini pc is based on what cpu architecture?
AFAIK there is no android mini running on intel architecture (x86/x64) types, they're all running on arm and that.

And ST is build for intel x86/x64. That's the same thing as with Windows 8 RT (that is arm based) and Windows 8 (intel based)- you can't get any of your native windows programs running on a completely different cpu architecture.

ARM, yes of course! Thanks for the eye-opener.
:)

So, there is no ARM version of Sublime Text, right? And never will be? (Wink, wink…)

Anyways, thanks for the reply.
