running sublime text 2 on ubuntu

less than 1 minute read

You can download sublime text 2.

I created a directory, "Applications" under Home. I extracted the downloaded tar in there. Then I did "Make Link" of sublime_text executable and put it into /home/bin, where $Path includes. I renamed the shortcut (excuse my windows terminology) to "subl", so I can just type "subl ." to launch the editor.

"Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "pixmap""
I run the editor and get this error.

[sourcecode language="bash"]
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf

Once you install gtk2..., the error will go away.
