Sublime Text 2 does not start on OS X

Sublime Text 2 does not start on OS X

Postby ikailan on Mon Jun 25, 2012 5:44 pm

After restarted my Mac, Sublime Text 2 does not start on OS X 10.6.8. When I try to run the Application from Finder, the icon appears momentarily before disappearing.

I'm running the latest build 2181. I've tried restarting the application as well as deleting

~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2

Is there a log file I can look at to try to figure out why it's not starting up?

I've already deleted the folder (per original post) - no luck. The icon blinks momentarily on the task bar before Sublime exits.

You could try opening up a terminal and run Sublime Text 2 in gdb to see if that gives you any indication.

Launch it like this:
Code: Select all
gdb /Applications/Sublime\ Text\ 2.app/Contents/MacOS/Sublime\ Text\ 2


And then when "(gdb)" is shown, type "run" and press enter. Don't know if you must have XCode and the commandline compilation tools installed or not for gdb though. If you don't have gdb you could just run "/Applications/Sublime\ Text\ 2.app/Contents/MacOS/Sublime\ Text\ 2" and see if anything useful is printed.

Strange, my original reply didn't post.

Yep, that gave me the info I needed. Python 2.6 wasn't installed where sublime expected it to be.
