Jeffrey Way recommended Sublime, so I decided to try it. I am running Ubuntu 11.10 and have downloaded Sublime Text 2 Build 2165 and extracted it.
I can run sublime_text from command prompt ok, but it does not appear to have all of the features, and there doesn't appear to be a Readme file. Eg., I cannot access the menu to change preferences.
Pls advise if it is necessary to install it using one of the scripts, and what are the ramifications of doing that, or alternatively how to access the menu in Ubuntu.
