I know that this is too noob but I cant just figure it out..

I would like to install sublime text 3 on my raspberry-pi however as I click on the sublime dmg file that I downloaded it asks: select an application to open apple disk image file..

What do I do from here...?

Thank you in advance!

    You can't run a Mac Os app on the PI. – Steve Robillard Sep 9 '16 at 19:56
  • See my comments on SuperAdmin's answer below, but a better solution may be to setup samba or NFS which would allow access to the files from you PC - which presumably has ST installed. – Steve Robillard Sep 9 '16 at 20:05

Sublime text is a closed source program which doesn't have an ARM build:

Let me clarify that statement: Given we only have a finite amount of time, any time spent maintaining an ARM build would take away time from other areas. At this stage, I believe this would result in a net negative to Sublime Text's users.

So, you'll have to find another editor for your RPi. For example, you could try bluefish:

sudo apt-get install bluefish

You can't install. There is no such build available for Raspberry Pi.

You can install "Caret" app(Google Chrome's app) instead. It's just like Sublime and also a light weight one.

Got to Caret



Looks like an ARM build is in the works - private beta as of end of July https://forum.sublimetext.com/t/arm-build/5882/88


Try this,

Open up terminal from the raspian menu,

type sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-2

after this is done type sudo apt-get update

then type sudo apt-get install sublime-text

I hope this works. :D.

    I don't think this will work as I can find no where that ST supports the arm chip. A google search turned up a way to run it under QEMU (virtualiazation), but this is not likley to have the performance the OP hoped for. – Steve Robillard Sep 9 '16 at 20:04

    Thanks but, that indeed doesn't work! – Pi-beginner Sep 10 '16 at 20:28
  • Oh? Sorry. I will look for a different solution. – Intel_I7_Inside Sep 11 '16 at 13:24
  • It's generally a good idea to try your proposed answer prior to posting. Obviously incorrect answers often get downvotes, and become clutter. This one is so clearly wrong I'd recommend deleting (or modifying) to avoid further downvotes. – Seamus Aug 26 '20 at 20:05
