wget -qO - https://download.sublimetext.com/sublimehq-pub.gpg | sudo apt-key add -

Type user password (no asterisk feedback) when it prompts and hit Enter.

2. Then run command to add the apt repository:

echo "deb https://download.sublimetext.com/ apt/stable/" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sublime-text.list

3. Finally install sublime-text package either via Synaptic package manager or by running command:

Uninstall:

To remove the editor, run command:

sudo apt remove --autoremove sublime-text

To remove the apt repository, go to Software & Updates -> Other Software.
