@Nek With 4.4143-3 the option now gets added back to the desktop file. I also updated the -dev and -3 package accordingly. Thanks for the feedback. :)

Edit: It now uses the correct wmclass string. My understanding of the wmclass option was wrong. I first thought the wmclass string is set by whatever is used in the desktop file but subl is in fact the correct class set by Sublime Text itself.

@SunRed You were right. I added StartupWMClass=subl to the desktop file (under [Desktop Entry]) and it worked, the alt-tab icon is back. Thank you.

SunRed commented on 2022-12-02 23:15 (UTC)

@Nek That must be due to the latest update now using the .desktop file from the upstream package and sed'ing that one, rather than providing one in the AUR package. Quickly looking at the differences, it possibly is the lack of StartupWMClass in the new one as seen here on the old desktop file. You can try out setting that in /usr/share/applications/sublime_text.desktop and report back as it seems like a GNOME specific option and I don't have it currently anywhere installed.

with version 4.4143-2 Gnome 43 (wayland) does not show the sublimetext icon in the ALT-TAB menu but it shows a generic gear icon instead. The icon in the Gnome Activities is the correct one though. Is this an upstream issue or a package issue? Worked well before this version.

@NullRoute In case you read this, sorry I never came back to this. The reason for sublime-text being in conflicts is because it should be removed if you try to install the official repo package. Same for the -dev version. The patch you want to include that allows side-by-side installation and execution should be applied to the legacy versions as those ones are not provided by official repos anymore and where the binary should be renamed to subl3 and subl2 respectively. These packages should only have sublime-text in provides but not in conflicts with that patch applied and would allow what you ask for.

@prabh1601: I unflagged the package already.

Please only flag the package out-of-date if the version on the upstream URL of this package is newer.

In addition I want to note that I actually have a notifier in place that checks every hour if the version has been updated on the sublime text website. My plan was to automate this process with a bot account here on the AUR but I have yet to implement that part.

prabh1601 commented on 2022-02-19 11:52 (UTC)

@genesis, why have you even marked this rep out of date, 4127 is supposed to be dev build which is already updated on the sublime-text-dev aur package, This is stable build package and so far 4126 is the latest one. Please fix your out of date flag

SunRed commented on 2021-12-23 11:55 (UTC)

What exactly is the issue here now? Sorry I didn't manage to update the package within a day. The package name 'sublime-text' is used for the official package already and hence will be removed if you submit it to the AUR.

@zizzo You can make a new one and name it sublime-text or sublime-text-hq
