Sublime Merge doesn't detection Sublime Editor automatically in Ubuntu


According to the Advanced Preferences text, Sublime Merge should use Sublime Text when available if the field is not populated.

On my machine, Open with Editor opened the file using a terminal editor rather than Sublime Text even though it was available. After entering /snap/bin/subl, Sublime Text is launched as expected.

I’m using Ubuntu 18.04 with Sublime Merge 1119.



We don’t provide snap distributions of our products. Using the ubuntu ppa should work as expected.
