I downloaded Sublime Text (Sublime Text 2.0.2 x64.tar.bz2)
I opened it with the archive manager and I got a folder of stuff in my home directory. I have a launcher on the desktop. All of this works. But that launcher is the only way I can open Sublime Text. I cannot open a document with it using the "open with" list because it does not appear on that list. If I type sublime_text at a terminal prompt, nothing happens. I tried copying my launcher into /usr/share/applications, but that did not work either.
So how do I install it so that I can run it?
These difficulties occurred on Llinux Mint 14, 64 bit. I have the same problems on my 32 bit netbook running Crunchbang. I apologize for the very basic nature of this question, but installation is not covered by the FAQ.
