Hey there,

What you're looking for is a Command Line Utility for Sublime. The command is not automatically included. There is a resource on Github, or you can just Google something like "install sublime shortcut in command line."

If the utility is not installed, you will receive that error, so there is really nothing wrong with your computer or command.

I personally use Atom, and the utility seemed to be auto installed when I installed Atom, so I can't be much help with the Sublime utility... Sorry.

Hope you get it solved. :)

Keep Coding! :dizzy:

Hi Jason

I also use atom. So how do you access it using terminal? I type the word atom and the commands but nothing happens.

Hi Ryan Jacob

That's is strange that nothing happens. When you install Atom it automatically installs the link needs to run shell commands. Have a look at this Stack Overflow Thread. The first answer to the post describes a few of the commands, but the 2nd and particularly the 3rd one touches on what to do if those commands don't work.

Hope you get it all figured. :) :dizzy:
