Debian: Opening from FireFTP/FileZilla opens a new instance

Debian: Opening from FireFTP/FileZilla opens a new instance

Postby drjonez on Fri Aug 05, 2011 3:45 pm

When I open a remote document from Filezilla or FireFtp with Sublime, it opens a new instance every time. So if I go into the server and open index.html it opens one instance. If I open styles.css it opens an additional instance with both index.html and styles.css - Would be nice if it just opened the new file in an existing instance. I'm using build 2091 on Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.2 (squeeze)

Thanks! I'm really loving Sublime Text otherwise and recommend it to all my windows/osx users... Would love to tout it to my linux friends too.

By new instance, do you mean new window? If so, this thread might help you. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2631

Yes, I saw those posts. I do mean it opens a new window...

I have "open_files_in_new_window": false,

keep in mind that open_files_in_new_window is marked "OSX Only" - I'm not using OSX, I'm using debian.


Still scratching my head.

Additionally, the same thing happens if I open the project from Gnome 2's file folders. I can, however, drag the document into the SLT window and it will properly open a new tab.

It's likely that one of the GTK libraries that Sublime Text relies on is too old to provide the single instance support that Sublime Text 2 uses. You can verify this by running via the command line: you'll get a message printed to stderr if this is the case.

Yup, here it is:

libgio version is less than 2.26, single instance support disabled

Thanks for the clue. I'll look into it.

Is there any workaround for systems running an older libgio, where upgrading GTK may not be feasible? I have a company-mandated standard install using 2.22, I think, and am Linux-newbie enough to be reluctant to mess with it...
