  1. Fresh install subl3 from webupd8 repo
  2. Install BracketHighlighter by going to ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/User and

    git clone -b BH2ST3 git://github.com/facelessuser/BracketHighlighter.git "BracketHighlighter"

Now, menu in Tools > Packages > BracketHighlighter is unactive and all settings in Preferences > Package Settings > Bracket Highlighter are empty, but they are not empty in config files in ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/User/BracketHighlighter. Moreover, when I want to save new settings to Bracket Settings - Default I'm getting this error:

Unable to save ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/BracketHighlighter/bh_core.sublime-settings Error: unable to create tmp file in /home/user_name/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/BracketHighlighter.

What's wrong? How to solve this? Launching sublime by sudo subl don't solve this problem. I was trying to install sublime 3 from official .deb package too - nothing changed at all.
