In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Sublime Text on openSUSE. Sublime Text is a sophisticated text editor for code, markup, and prose. It’s loved by developers worldwide for its slick user interface, extraordinary features, and amazing performance.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Sublime Text on openSUSE.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: openSUSE.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • You will need access to the terminal to execute commands. openSUSE provides the Terminal application for this purpose. It can be found in your Applications menu.
  • You’ll need an active internet connection to download Sublime Text and its dependencies.
  • You’ll need administrative (root) access or a user account with sudo privileges.

Step 1. Starting with an updated system is a best practice in Linux administration. It ensures that all software packages are up-to-date, minimizing potential security vulnerabilities. To update your openSUSE system, open the terminal and execute the following commands:

sudo zypper refresh
sudo zypper update

Step 2. Installing Sublime Text on openSUSE.

The first step in the installation process is to import the GPG key. This key is used to verify the authenticity of the packages you’ll be installing. To import the GPG key, use the rpm command as follows:

sudo rpm -v --import

This command downloads the GPG key from the Sublime Text website and imports it into your system.

Next, add the Sublime Text repository to your system. This repository contains the packages needed to install Sublime Text. Use the zypper command to add the repository:

sudo zypper addrepo -g -f

This command adds the stable version of Sublime Text to your system. If you prefer to use the development version, replace stable with dev in the URL.

Now you’re ready to install Sublime Text. Use the zypper command to install it:

sudo zypper refresh
sudo zypper install sublime-text
