Installing Sublime Text 2 on a Chromebook with Crouton



Gonna try to get this running on my chromebook with crouton using the following documentation:

HOW TO INSTALL SUBLIME TEXT 2 ON UBUNTU 11.10:

Update #1: You will first need to install the following package to use the add repo command per the documentation.

apt-get install python-software-properties

Update #2: The final command has changed. The following gist fork provides the updated final command.

https://gist.github.com/BobGneu/5239918

sudo apt-get install sublime-text

note the lack of -2 at the end of the command.  Also... it works! Yay!

I wound up giving my Chromebook to my girlfriend and reset it back to factory defaults prior to giving it to her so I no longer have a way to check/replicate the issue you are seeing. Can you post the commands you are issuing and not just the output?

I'm getting the same error as Andy
