I downloaded/installed Sublime Text 3 via the .deb package and inserted my license. The window popped up saying thank you for registering.

However, it still says unregistered in the menu/title bar. How can I remove it? Minor annoyance after spending the money to get a license.

  • I'm having the same issue. The .desktop file shows "Sublime Text", but the Unity launcher and Switcher both show the (UNREGISTERED) message. – Greg Feb 16 '16 at 11:24
  • Same here. I am on Ubuntu 15.10 and Sublime Text 3 (3103) – Patelify Feb 20 '16 at 0:08

I just had this issue as well and it turned out it was just the unity link file that needed to be updated. The link was created before I registered sublime so the link name gets created with the UNREGISTERED string.

I was able to fix this by modifying the link file.

vim ~/.local/share/applications/sublime_text.desktop

You can then change the Name= entry

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Sublime Text -- UNREGISTERED
  • Is there a way to have changes update without having to log out and back in? – smhg Feb 11 '17 at 16:41

    @smhg, quit sublime text and unlock it from the launcher. Start sublime text again, and relock it to launcher. – Szere Dyeri Aug 15 '17 at 6:47
