I am attempting to install Sublime Text 2 in /opt/sublime_text. Once all the files are in there, I believe the executable not detecting the python libraries and throwing the following error:

enter image description here

  • I have python installed on my system already (2.7.3).
  • I am able to run Sublime Text 2 from my home directory.

I've tried copying just the __future__.pyo file into the /opt/sublime_text folder but I get the same error message.

Is there a solution which doesn't require me to extract all of the python libraries in the application folder?

You should have an lib/python26.zip package within the app folder. Check if this file is possible corrupted.

  • Thanks, you were right. I was not properly copying the files. Rechecking my process and making sure all the files were intact fixed my problem.
