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'.

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!

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

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

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

nesadi commented on 2017-09-19 07:03

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.

the package build is using the nightly's source(3144), and now requires users to enter the license key (nightly is only for registered users). the following diff should fix it for now:

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.

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!

3.0 (Build 3143) Update, please

@BurhanDanger I'm OK with maintaining the package if there is demand for it.

BurhanDanger commented on 2017-07-17 09:43

Will this package be maintained now that ST has sophisticated repo&package ?
