I restarted my computer this morning and re-opened ST3. Now there’s a solid 1 second delay between keystrokes and letters appearing on screen. I subsequently upgraded to 3170 through apt-get but that didn’t resolve the issue. I did notice that it looked like a package had updated when I rebooted (I want to say it was SublimeLinter), but I can’t find a package history anywhere to check what it was. Nevertheless, I’ve tried removing nearly all packages, yet the delay persists. I have been using Sublime for almost 2 years with no issue.
I’ve also uninstalled Sublime completely, deleted the .config folders as well (which do not get removed with an
apt remove call), and re-installed fresh using
apt install, but I’m still seeing the lag.
I am using this on Ubuntu 16.04 with 4 Intel i5 cores and 8GB of RAM. I’ve restarted at least 4 times, and have run just ST3.1 with no other programs running as well. I’d be shocked if this were a memory or computational power issue.
How can I fix this? It’s a huge disruption.
