Sublime Text 3 constantly freezes on Ubuntu



I have been having this issue for months now, and was hoping that it would have been fixed by now.

The editor constantly freezes while typing or selecting text. The only way to unfreeze it is to maximize/restore/resize the window.

I am using Pop!_OS (Ubuntu) 20.10

$ sudo apt-get install sublime-text
Reading package lists… Done

sublime-text is already the newest version (3211).

I have tried rolling back to a previous version, but the problem exists as far back as 3200.

Please let me know if there is a workaround.

I can send a video of the problem if that would help.




My guess is you’re experiencing a bug with the latest GNOME. See Sublime Text freezes on Linux (Fedora / GNOME)
