Sublime Text is now available as a snap in the candidate channel
sudo snap install sublime-text-3 --classic --candidate
I haven’t found any issues yet but if anyone finds it, please feel free to either report here or at https://github.com/snapcrafters/sublime-text/issues
Tried this on Arch with
snapd-git package. A word of warning, I’m not a sublime user.
The basic functionality of a text editor seems to work just fine. I was able to open & save files, edit some code. Then I installed
sublime-text-dev from AUR. The only difference I observed was that in case of sublime snap, the application icon was not used Gnome-Shell.
Can you elaborate that a bit. Do you mean that if you install sublime from snap, you don’t see its icon in GNOME shell application drawer at all or does it show a fallback icon ?
There’s a fallback icon shown.
Thanks for testing, I have a fix for that here https://github.com/snapcrafters/sublime-text/pull/2 should land soon.
As a sublime-text user myself I think this application must come with a default alias of
subl as the classic packages did.
Added a request for that here Requesting subl auto-alias
