[Fedora] Opening ST4 from Sublime Merge spawns ST4 without user profile

#1

Hi,

When I use the command palette to open Sublime Text from Sublime Merge, a separate instance of Sublime Text is spawned seemingly without my profile - the theme is reset to default, no packages, and unregistered.

Checking the process list, the command is the same as when I manually launch Sublime Text - /opt/sublime_text/sublime_text --multiinstance.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling both applications and the issue remains.

I’m on Fedora 34, vanilla install, and latest builds of ST4 and Merge.

Appreciate any insight on this issue.

What package/data path gets logged in the Sublime Text console?

Seems to be launching from a directory related to Merge.

My guess is that you have something setting the XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment variable to /home/luke/.var/app/com.sublimemerge.App. Are you using our Linux repositories or a 3rd party package?
