In this case, I'd like to set up SublimeText as my editor for SmartGit, but I can't see a setting for it. Is it possible, and if so, how can I do it?

You need to set up a file association for it in the GUI.  There's a discussion about it on the Mint forums

Do the usual suspects in the environment not work for you? (EDITOR and VISUAL)

Duncan, are those environment variables? I'm not a particularly experienced user of Mint, so I'm not sure what you mean.

Yes they are. E.g. export EDITOR=SublimeText; export VISUAL=SublimeText
You can put these in your .bashrc, .bash_profile, .profile or wherever. They have to be in the environment of whatever process starts SmartGit.

Thanks Duncan and serialband; when I get a few moments, I'll try those suggestions out and see if it works. I'll try to come back to this within a week.
