Posted on 2nd March 2013

After reading numerous blog posts about how to install Sublime Text 2 in Ubuntu, this is definitely the quickest way!

Just paste the following lines into your Terminal:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-2
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install sublime-text

After running this, Sublime Text 2 has been installed within the /usr/lib/sublime-text-2 directory and can be launched from the Dashboard, or by typing subl, sublime-text or sublime-text-2 into a Terminal window.
