I downloaded the 64-bit .deb installer of Sublime Text 3 for Ubuntu and then I installed it using the setup from the software installer.

It was the paid version, so it is asking for the license key which I don't have. So I tried uninstalling Sublime Text but I am unable to do so.

  • Which repository did you install it from? Did you run 'sudo apt-get remove sublime-text' then 'sudo apt-get remove sublime-test-installer' and if so, what was the result? Please click on the edit link in grey at above left and add your findings to the original post. – K7AAY Jun 19 '18 at 20:35

First you should check the packege-name with

dpkg -l | grep sublime

then you can remove it. It should be called something like sublime-text-installer.

dpkg -r sublime-text-installer

You can uninstall the editor with the following command in a terminal:

sudo apt purge sublime-text

If you are being asked for a licence key then you downloaded a development build which is intended for use by licensed users only. A trial version of the application is available from http://www.sublimetext.com/3.

You will not be asked to input a licence key when starting Sublime Text provided it is not a development build.
