Following are the steps we are going to follow.

Download Sublime 3 for Fedora Linux
First, we need to download Sublime 3 Linux tar file. Go to following URL https://www.sublimetext.com/3 and download the 64bit tarball for other Linux distributions.

Next, we want to extract the tar file we downloaded. We will extract the sublime 3 tar file to /opt directory.
tar -jxvf sublime_text_3_build_3126_x64.tar.bz2 -C /opt
Once you extract the tar file, you should be able to find the sublime 3 folder inside the /opt directory, The folder name should be something like “sublime_text_3′.

Then, add the following configuration to the sublime_text_3.desktop file.
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Name=Sublime Text GenericName=Text Editor Comment=Sophisticated text editor for code, markup and prose Exec=/opt/sublime_text_3/sublime_text %F Terminal=false MimeType=text/plain; Icon=/opt/sublime_text_3/Icon/128x128/sublime-text.png Categories=TextEditor;Development; StartupNotify=true Actions=Window;Document;
In the above configuration, Make sure to replace /opt/sublime_text_3 with the exact folder name found in your /opt directory in the following lines.
Exec=/opt/sublime_text_3/sublime_text %F Icon=/opt/sublime_text_3/Icon/128x128/sublime-text.png
Finally, Save the file and we are Done.
