Update Sublime Text 3 With Tarball (tar.gz)

Apr 6, 2019

There are many ways to install Sublime Text 3.

I installed Sublime Text 3 during the time when the apt package is not available (sudo apt-get install sublime-text), so I installed Sublime Text 3 manually using tarball instead.

Find the directory when you installed Sublime Text 3.

ls -l /usr/bin/sublime*

Change to the install directory.


Download the latest tarball.

wget https://download.sublimetext.com/sublime_text_3_build_3207_x64.tar.bz2

Backup the old directory in case the new version has problem.

mv sublime_text_3 sublime_text_3_3200

Unzip the tarball

tar vxjf sublime_text_3_build_3207_x64.tar.bz2

Restart Sublime Text
