Please note that the dev branch of this software requires a license to be purchased from the website. If you want to support this software, please consider doing so.

You can use the stable branch available at sublime-text-4 or the official package for free.

SunRed commented on 2021-05-21 13:04 (UTC)

To cut down the amount of packages to be maintained and to decrease confusion, this package is now used for the 'dev' branch of Sublime Text that is kept up to date with the most recent version. Users who want to stay on the latest legacy versions or the most recent stable release should stick to the respective stable release packages (sublime-text-3, sublime-text-4) or use the official repos provided by Sublime Text.

@chovy: The dev branch never was free. As stated on the upstream URL:

Sublime Text dev builds are available to licensed users only.

Please buy a license or use sublime-text-4 or the official package.

chovy commented on 2022-02-20 02:36 (UTC)

looks like latest is no longer free :(

its asking me for a license key

chovy commented on 2022-02-20 02:35 (UTC)

sublime-text-4 is outdated now, so is there a sublime-text-5 or what? I just want latest stable version.

@SunRed Thanks for the info. I was lookint into it. I just installed sublime-text4 from aur.

SunRed commented on 2021-06-25 21:58 (UTC)

@davidgxxl As the page of the upstream url mentions, Sublime Text dev builds are available to licensed users only. Hence you should use sublime-text-4 or the official package that doesn't require a license. I should probably add an additional notice to the pacman hook about this and maybe update the package description accordingly.

For Sublime Text 4 Dev you need a Sublime Text 3 Dev license. Regular Sublime 3 Text licenses do not work.

Hi there !

@edubart, It seems that the .SRCINFO file with the new version (4.4092) ~~is missing~~ has not been updated.

We still have the 4.4090 on aur updates …

There's no need to do these tricks to add support for other architectures. They can be added by appending an underscore and the architecture name, e.g. source_x86_64=(); sha256sums_x86_64().

relrel commented on 2020-10-16 14:40 (UTC) (edited on 2020-10-16 14:41 (UTC) by relrel)

This package should be renamed to sublime-text-3-dev, to be consistent with sublime-text-3 and sublime-text-4-dev.

edub4rt commented on 2020-09-23 16:50 (UTC)

Support for aarch64 was added using SKIP on sha256sums as suggested. But I am unable to test if it works on aarch64, if doesn't add a comment with possible fix.

techknowlogick commented on 2020-09-23 01:34 (UTC) (edited on 2020-09-23 01:38 (UTC) by techknowlogick)

The following patch would allow aarch64 support

Note: The checksums will now need to be inside the switch case, assuming you don't have an aarch64 system to test on, you can leave it as SKIP

In my case existing ST3 license picked-up after upgrade, but I didn't try this with a clean profile.

markoff commented on 2020-05-17 19:44 (UTC)

Should a license that works for ST3 also work for ST4? Because mine is not working. After copying it to the ST4 window that pops up, nothing happens..

Please remove i686 from arch.

Thanks for keeping this updated :) I read in the release notes ( that they upgraded to GTK3 now, so the dependencies have changed.

sender commented on 2019-03-17 22:02 (UTC)

@alzheimer: There are more reasons to keep the packages at AUR, but some (most?) might prefer to be closer to the source, even though we keep the software as vanilla as possible. Anyway, one has options.

ispeaknousa commented on 2019-03-15 08:51 (UTC)

@sender "Sublime Text 3 is available via the dedicated pacman repo provided by the author. From now on this is the recommended way to install ST3 on Arch Linux."

But isn't the point of AUR to gather everything in one place? Otherwise it's just like the common PPAs in Ubuntu. Instead of adding all the dedicated repos which might change over time, we know for sure that there's one place where, for example, tutorials can point safely. Besides, there's no list of pacman channels we (as users) need to make sure that are still alive.

Kind regards

sender commented on 2019-03-08 10:21 (UTC)

@sparr Leftover from the days that ST2 was stable and used subl.

sparr commented on 2019-03-07 19:59 (UTC)

Why subl3 instead of subl which seems to be the norm when using ST3's normal installer, and on other distros and OSes?

nasr18 commented on 2018-05-23 06:23 (UTC)

@thamaraiselvam maybe. first update your system and then try via yaourt.

As with the upgrade to 3144, the current version 3153 is also not usable without a license key.

TomaszGasior commented on 2017-11-08 19:54 (UTC)

Will this package contain stable sublime text 3 (as before) or sublime text 3 dev (as is suggested by package name)?

sender commented on 2017-09-19 09:03 (UTC)

@nesadi Correct. I've overlooked this before. Package has been downgraded to build 3143.

nesadi commented on 2017-09-19 07:03 (UTC) (edited on 2017-09-19 07:12 (UTC) by nesadi)

The package shouldn't have been updated to 3144, it's currently only for licensed users (see vs which is 3143 instead). So now this package is directly asking for a license key and doesn't allow usage without it, which shouldn't happen. For anybody trying to install sublime-text-dev at the moment, you're going to have to change the PKGBUILD before doing so. Go to line 5, change 3144 to 3143. You'll also have to change the sha256 checksums at lines 22 or 23, depending on whether you're installing the x32 or x64 packages x32: b1ecc4b70d66b9236b876f1913c4094b6dd51436e45c74883ba70a1939e9f735 x64: 9ce120c4f28b239d3b3860ee672d9d87e1397a4c08ee6c4e62fd6e261a296519 I just did this myself and it works fine. You can verify the checksums by downloading the package(s) from and running sha256sum on it.

Venom1991 commented on 2017-09-14 08:51 (UTC) (edited on 2017-09-14 08:54 (UTC) by Venom1991)

I've just replaced this package with the one in the author's repository (using pacman instead of an AUR helper, of course) and no issues arose at all - each and every setting was preserved as well as extra packages, themes and such. I'm just writing this as sort of a reassurement for those who are "afraid" something might break in the process, especially since the new build's changelog is pretty damn huge. The only real difference I've noticed is that the launch script (located in /bin) is no longer named "subl3" but simply "subl". EDIT: In case your pacman.conf contains the "archlinuxfr" repository be sure to put the "sublime-text" repository before it (to enforce precedence) because "archlinuxfr" has a Sublime Text 2 package which is definitely not what you want.

awagner commented on 2017-09-13 20:14 (UTC)

On the official repos there is no i386 build, neither for the stable nor for the dev channel. For this reason I would be really grateful if this package would continue to be maintained. (I might switch to the nightly package however.) Thank you for the work you have put into it so far!

Since 26 May 2017 Sublime Text 3 is available via the dedicated pacman repo provided by the author. From now on this is the recommended way to install ST3 on Arch Linux. Package sublime-text-dev is replaced by repo 'stable'. Package sublime-text-nightly is replaced by repo 'dev'. See:

FranklinYu commented on 2017-04-19 21:48 (UTC)

Thank you @Marcel_K! Glad that I don't need to do that myself.

Marcel_K commented on 2017-04-19 17:34 (UTC)

Sort of: the symlink is called `subl3`, to avoid a conflict with the sublime-text package (version 2).

FranklinYu commented on 2017-04-19 14:30 (UTC)

Does this package generate a symbolic link to `subl` in my path? [The Ubuntu PPA I used before]( seemed to do that. It's very handy as I use Sublime Text as replacement for Vim.

mikeroll commented on 2017-04-12 19:04 (UTC)

What stops you from renaming the packages to -beta and -dev accordingly? Sure that will confuse current users, but that's a "one-time" confusion as opposed to every new user tripping over this.

@janoliver, why didn't you look at what you were doing? This package is not out of date. Versions 3127 and 3128 are for nightly builds, not this build. Don't mess it up. Look at the pinned comment. Dev builds in AUR are the beta build in ST website. Nightly builds in AUR are the dev build in ST website. AUR website should not allow anyone to flag a package out of date, it should require some kind of validation.

th5 commented on 2017-04-12 14:56 (UTC)

If you've come looking for 3128, you are in the wrong place. This package isn't out of date. Instead you want sublime-text-nightly.

Did you try to build and install it the ordinary way, using makepkg and then issuing pacman -U? No problems here. Please try to build using makepkg first before complaining about packages, because AUR helpers are known to be buggy. BTW, you're probably downloading an already built package from an unsigned/incorrectly signed source, instead of building the package locally yourself.

@Rodori I agree with what @Marcel_K wrote. This package is meant to be installed side-by-side with ST2. You can fix your situation permanently in several ways on your own system.

Marcel_K commented on 2016-04-18 16:29 (UTC)

Technically, that's possible, but you shouldn't install files during post_install, as those are not tracked by pacman. What's more difficult, is that it is allowed to install ST2 after you installed ST3, which either isn't possible then, because of the symlink, or it will simply overwrite the symlink, which is not what you want: when uninstalling ST3, post_remove will delete `subl`, assuming it still is the symlink created during post_install. This seems like an edge case, but it really is undesired behaviour.

Rodori commented on 2016-04-18 13:56 (UTC)

Please, could you include a function to check whether you have Sublime Text 2 installed or not and create a symlink from `subl` to `subl3` if possible? It's because I always have to do it manually, and I have aliases pointing to "subl" instead of "subl3". I don't know if there's any way to specify that during the `makepkg` process though. Thank you in advance.

sender commented on 2016-04-17 12:26 (UTC)

@nmstoker It's a very unfortunate situation. No idea on the timing. You can raise this issue upstream. BTW nothing wrong with moving to the -nightly ;)

nmstoker commented on 2016-04-16 20:41 (UTC)

Hi @sender - any idea on the timing that Beta might move to build 3109 (or above)? The SSL error is causing me a few issues, but I suspect I probably shouldn't just switch to Dev (-nightly) especially if it's coming any time soon.

gadicc commented on 2016-03-30 16:36 (UTC)

thanks @sender! and for your ongoing maintenance of this package.

sender commented on 2016-03-30 15:35 (UTC)

@gadicc and others: the ssl-linux issue has been resolved in ST3 build 3109 (available via the nightly channel: Thanks Esgariot.

gadicc commented on 2016-03-12 07:11 (UTC)

For me, some plugins (that depend on SSL) stopped working on updating from openssl 1.0.2.f-1 -> 1.0.2.g-3. No error messages outside the console, but there I found messages about being unable to import _ssl, and upon manually adding the "Linux SSL" package (in sublime), errors about OPENSSL_1.0.0 not being defined in libssl1.0.0. The quick fix was to downgrade with `pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/openssl-1.0.2.f-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz`, reload sublime, and everything worked again. Since this was a minor update, I imagine existing libraries should still work? Maybe someone who understands OpenSSL better can open an appropriate bug report, if relevant.

sender commented on 2016-02-17 08:37 (UTC)

There seems to be a lot of confusion about the ST packages. This is because the author switched names for branches. Packages: Sublime Text 3 Beta - package: sublime-text-dev - Upstream: Sublime Text 3 Dev (used to be called nightly) - package: sublime-text-nightly - upstream: - NOTE: for registered users only If you want the absolute latest get *sublime-text-nightly*. Note that you have to be licensed to use this!

@Marcel_K Personally I have no affinity with this layer of tech or any authority in the development process of ST. If you feel you can escalate this in the right way to the developer, you have my support ;) The post says that the old ABI will still be available, so in the meantime we are probably fine.

Marcel_K commented on 2015-12-12 20:14 (UTC)

According to the script in [1], the binaries should be recompiled. However, this package relies on pre-compiled binaries. Should this be escalated to the developer? [1]

Thank you for this package!

sender commented on 2015-11-07 14:00 (UTC)

@horosgrisa are you sure you are running the sublime-text-dev package, and the latest version? I don't get how you could get `WM_CLASS(STRING) = "sublime_text", "Sublime_text"`. Anyway, it doesn't seem to be possible to specify multiple values for `StartupWMClass`.

horosgrisa commented on 2015-11-05 06:44 (UTC)

@sender Now in KDE 5 ST window shows in another icon. `xprop WM_CLASS` returns `WM_CLASS(STRING) = "sublime_text", "Sublime_text"`. I changed `StartupWMClass=subl3` to `StartupWMClass=sublime_text` and now all work normal.

commented on 2015-11-01 16:06 (UTC)

Icon files are conflicting here, too. The package "sublime-text" owns the icons with "-", too.

NoMore201 commented on 2015-09-26 08:28 (UTC)

@sender now is ok! I don't now why but I needed to do the same thing for the android studio .desktop file

sender commented on 2015-09-25 15:52 (UTC)

@NoMore66201 I checked using `xprop WM_CLASS`, but this already returns `WM_CLASS(STRING) = "subl3", "Subl3"`. I implemented your suggestion anyway, can you test?

NoMore201 commented on 2015-09-25 10:12 (UTC)

In gnome 3.16 open ST window shows in another icon, you should add StartupWMClass=subl3 to the .desktop file :)

sender commented on 2015-09-01 16:57 (UTC)

@spelufo: Check the sublime-text-nightly package for build 3095 (for registered users only). @Marcel_K thanks!

Marcel_K commented on 2015-09-01 15:43 (UTC)

The .SRCINFO file is only read by aurweb, so no need to update that one. You probably entered "sublime_text_3.desktop,,subl3" in one line this way, so makepkg thinks that line represents one file, not three separate ones. Put every file on a separate line and you'll be fine. BTW, the bug is fixed in build 3088.

spelufo commented on 2015-09-01 14:28 (UTC)

There is a terrible bug in thes version of sublime that sets the umask to 0, so all files you create from sublime are world writable: I used this ( workaround (not by me) to fix it. I think this package should apply it. I'm trying to add the files, but it tells me: ==> Retrieving sources... ==> ERROR: sublime_text_3.desktop,,subl3 was not found in the build directory and is not a URL. I've run mksrcinfo, which updates the .SRCINFO file but makepkg still complains.

prash commented on 2015-06-05 11:51 (UTC)

I was browsing Sublime Text's forums yesterday and came across their dev build, 3092. I marked AUR package out of date, though I later realized I shouldn't have. Only paid customers have access to the dev builds. I made this mistake because the AUR package is called "-dev". Please note that their dev builds ( are quite different from their beta builds ( To prevent confusion, this package should be renamed to sublime-text-beta.

Marcel_K commented on 2015-05-18 08:59 (UTC)

It would be helpful if you use the English version of makepkg. And as far as I can see, there's no PGP signature provided, so there's no need to read a remote key. Whoever flagged this out-of-date: it's not.

Please run pacman -Qo /usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/sublime-text.png to see which package owns that file. In my case, it's this package. FYI, sublime-text creates the same file with an underscore instead of a hyphen.

lucacerone commented on 2015-04-01 21:24 (UTC)

I had one issue, the installation was failing because PKGBUILD was trying to create a link /usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/sublime-text.png which already existed. I changed the ln command to /usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/sublime-text-dev.png and the installation worked flawlessly. I have both sublime-text and sublime-text-dev and they seem to work just fine.

@Marcel_K Done. Actually you are right, I did this back when I still ran both versions alongside eachother. Thanks.

Marcel_K commented on 2015-03-29 09:51 (UTC)

Indeed, and I tested this (I currently have installed 2 and 3 alongside eachother, without problems). I thought you (or a previous maintainer) deliberately made all file names and pathes different from sublime-text. Just compare them:

sender commented on 2015-03-28 15:29 (UTC)

@Marcel_K So you say there is no need for the conflict/provide clauses with package sublime-text, and you have tested this? If no objections (anyone?) I will make the change. Thanks for looking into this.

Marcel_K commented on 2015-03-26 14:56 (UTC)

Marcel_K commented on 2015-03-24 10:44 (UTC)

About the conflict: why? I've already installed 2 and 3 alongside eachother without issues at all. Moreover, all filenames are different, like using hyphens vs. underscores. E.g.: usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/apps/sublime_text.png (2) usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/apps/sublime-text.png (3) If we replace 2 by 3, we can ignore those things and even rename script subl3 to subl. But I slightly prefer to have packages that can be installed without conflict alongside eachother.

NOTE on nightly, dev and stable build numbers: nightly builds always have the latest changes even though the build number on a dev or stable build can be larger. Note from the author of Sublime Text: "The contents of 2188 and 2190 are the same, there aren't any new changes in the dev build that aren't in the nightly build. This is the same as what happens when a stable build is released: it'll have a larger number, as it's the most recently created build, but it won't have any new changes beyond what's in the latest dev build." If you want the latest and you have a license, install the nightly build ( If you want the latest and you don't have license, install the dev build. Or obtain a license from the Sublime Text site.

@sender, It sets window wmclass to some specific value. WMClass helps Gnome, Xfce and bunch of window managers group and identify applications. For example it helps Gnome Shell to group apps with their respective .desktop files and behave as expected. Here's some screenshots with current behaviour: and Here how it looks with --class flag applied (also it is expected behaviour): and Sadly, I cannot find any documentation regarding this switch. P.S. That strange icon is my custom icon for sublime text.

Hi, I'm building pluging packages for sublime for the AUR and I had a suggestion. can I suggest adding: provides=(sublime-text) and installing to /opt/sublime-text/ rather than /opt/sublime-text-dev/ ? This would make it possible to make a set of PKGBUILDS for the public plugins repositories for sublime that would work for both sublime-text and sublime-text-dev. If not, 2 PKGBUILDS would have to exist for every plugin package, which seems silly.
