Sublime Text is available for Windows, Mac Osx and for Linux. That is the way I like my software. One learning period and useful for all operating systems.

Let us first install it via ppa so the updates will follow later but you can also download a .deb file from the site to install it.

At the time of writing the version in the ppa or on the website was the same! I will always prefer the ppa in that case.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sublime-text

 

TIP: First step when I open sublime-text is go to the menu VIEW and hide the mini-map.
