I have looked on various places but cannot find any answer to my problem. Here it is :

I installed Sublime text 2 following this tutorial : http://www.technoreply.com/how-to-install-sublime-text-2-on-ubuntu-12-04-unity/ I replicated all the steps except step 4 that I changed by using this command instead : ~/.local/share/applications/sublime.desktop

Everything works fine apart from the fact that when I click on the shorcut icon or when I start sublime text with a command line, it does not open a new file but my sublime.desktop file.

Can somebody help me understand why it does that ?

Thanks in advance



You haven't made the .desktop file executable.

Run the command:

chmod +x /usr/share/applications/sublime.desktop

  • I ran this command as i did not but the .desktop file in usr/share/ chmod +x ~/.local/share/applications/sublime.desktop it does not change anything. When I click on the icon it still open the sublime.desktop file whereas i would like it to open on the where I was when i last left sublime. It might be a problem with what is in the .desktop file .. – M0rkHaV Aug 4 '14 at 9:39
