How can I install Sublime Text 2 on a Linux distribution I am using called QNX?

QNX is not a Linux distribution. It's not even really much of a Unix.

Given that Sublime Text 2 does not come in a version for QNX, and given that the source code doesn't seem to be available for download (it's a commercial product), chances are that you aren't going to be able to make it work on QNX without the assistance of the authors.

Thanks, this is unfortunate, do you know of any good ide programs that will work with QNX? – Ben Aug 13 '12 at 2:42
I don't know of any IDEs that run on QNX. Keep in mind that QNX has not been historically intended as a desktop operating system. QNX is intended for, say, nuclear power plants, medical devices and ATMs. As such, when most people think of "QNX IDE", they're thinking about IDEs for software targeting QNX, not running on it. You might have luck running vim, which can have IDE features grafted on... – Charles Aug 13 '12 at 2:58
Yeah i am having some trouble installing VIM, i will keep trying though. – Ben Aug 13 '12 at 3:46

Simply put: you can't. QNX is a proprietary OS and not compatible with Linux; besides, Sublime Text is closed-source, if the developers haven't released a version for a specific platform, it won't work.
