I was trying to make Sublime Text 2 start from the Terminal. I found a great resource but I cannot find where it is installed. I used the WebUpd8 PPA, anyone know where the PPA installs sublime.

  • It should be under Accessories. If it's not, try to open it via terminal with the command sublime-text

I don't know the answer to this exact question, but to know wich files did a package install you can use this command:

dpkg -L <package name>

The best thing is that you can use tab completion with it so:

dpkg -L subli<tab>

is likely to give you the answer.

You can also use Synaptic to find this list through a GUI.


The command for starting it is most likely


though try




These are the programs, or links that get installed to /usr/bin/ (if my limited understanding of deb packages is anything to go by, I don't actually use the software).
