Sublime Text 2 won't let me use it unless I upgrade. Is there an easy way to do this? I'm new to Linux and all they have is the tar.bz2 file. But I know you can update programs with apt-get sometimes. Does anyone know the easiest way to upgrade?

There is a PPA repository for Sublime Text 2.

This means that, once you enable this repository, you can upgrade Sublime Text 2 using the standard Mint package manager, apt-get.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-2
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sublime-text-2

There are full instructions on this blog post.

See this question on Ask Ubuntu about What are PPAs and how do I use them? so you understand the concept before enabling it.
