If you are a Web Developer, you should definitely give Sublime Text2 a try. Its a awesome text editor with so many programmer friendly functionalities like syntax highlighting, command palette, split editing and so on.
I’ll brief the steps to install Sublime Text 2 in Ubuntu 12.04 through this blog post,
Step 1: Download the tar file from Official Website and extract it in /usr/lib/
sudo tar xf Sublime\ Text\ 2\ Build\ 2181\ x64.tar.bz2
Step 2: You need to call sublime from terminal by typing "Sublime", so let's create a symlink to /usr/bin/sudo ln -s /usr/lib/Sublime\ Text\ 2/sublime_text /usr/bin/sublime
Now you can launch your Sublime from Terminal by typing the command "sublime". For more on Sublime Text, Checkout Official Documentation.
