Attempting to install using the debian package under Mint produces the following error. I also have sublime 2 installed.

enter image description here

  • Can you ignore the error and install it? Or does it not let you

  • where did you get the "Debian package"? Have you also tried installing Sublime from some other source previously? How did you install Sublime Text 2?

Just happened to me, did it manual:

sudo dpkg -r sublime-text-installer
sudo dpkg -i sublime-text_build-3065_amd64.deb # <- of course, depends on your version 



Just before installing the new package run this:

sudo apt-get purge sublime-text-installer
