Could not install Sublime Text 3 on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS on Nvidia Jetson TX2


Hi Guys:

I could not install Sublime Text 3 on Nvidia Jetson TX2. It shows the following errors.

nvidia@nvidia-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install sublime-text
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
E: Unable to locate package sublime-text

Do you have any methods to solve the issue?

Thanks in advance,




According to this page a Jetson TX2 doesn’t have an Intel processor and Sublime only supports Intel, so my guess would be that the package is marked as requiring a different architecture and thus doesn’t show up?



presumably one should refer to instruction sets rather than manufacturers, as I’m sure plenty of people use ST with an AMD cpu, no?

anyway, its unclear if the OP set up the source correctly

This is an ARM-based system, not sure it is supported by the Sublime folks.

I have some 1GiB Raspberry Pis, but I’m not sure Sublime would run all that well on them. Jetson TX2 has 8GiB, which would be very nice indeed.
