First off, I'm new to SSH. I would like to use Sublime Text as my text editor on my computer. However, I cannot install it on the computers that I am connecting to with SSH. How can I use it as my text editor?
One simple way is to mount your remote SSH server with your File Manager, which is Nautilus by default in Ubuntu.
To do so, open any directory (go to Home for example), and enter your remote server in Address Bar (press Ctrl+L to edit current location). Type-in desired address with this format:
After login, your remote server should be mounted like local media - check left Side Bar for it (F9 to hide/show SideBar). You can Bookmark in Nautilus your remote location with Ctrl+D.
You can open files and Sublime Text's projects this way.
