I know I am not root because I cannot browse packages.
First, I am aware of this page, but it is not working for me. After following those instruction, I get the prompt when I open Sublime from Unity, but I am still not able to browse packages. If I open sublime using
gksu subl in the terminal, nothing happens. If I do
sudo subl it opens and I can browse packages. Is it OK to open sublime as sudo every time instead of gksu?
Edit: Actually, when I open sublime from Unity, it prompts for the password, then doesn't open at all.
gksudo subl has the same effect as gksu. I installed Sublime from the website (clicked the Ubuntu 64 link, it downloaded, clicked the download, it took me to Software Center). "which subl" returns
/usr/bin/subl. gksu is installed. Glutanimate, yes that is what I mean. Any idea what is happening then? I can only browse them if I use sudo.
