Install Sublime Text on Rocky Linux 9

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Sublime Text on Rocky Linux 9. For those of you who didn’t know,  Sublime Text is a sophisticated text editor for code, markup, and prose that is loved by developers across Linux distributions. With its slick user interface, extraordinary features like multi-cursor editing, and split-screen functionality, Sublime Text enhances productivity for programmers.

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 Rocky Linux 9 or RHEL-based.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Rocky Linux 9.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Sublime Text.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
