 Installing the Visual Studio Code on Linux - how to do that!?
#1
dear community

the question of today: Installing the Visual Studio Code on Linux - how to do that!?

the well known open source code editor Visual Studio Code is becoming more and more well known.


the question is:
how to install Visual Studio Code in Ubuntu and - even more interesting in many other Linux distributions. Ubuntu is not the only Linux-system it is only a very very little part of the linux world. by releasing Visual Studio Code for all major desktop platforms that includes Linux as well the Coding Community was enlighted and yes: they are very happy.. The Visual Code became more and more famous - and during the time one of the best open source code editors.

To sume up: The feature it provides are useful not only to web developers but for other languages too.
I am not going to list the features of Visual Studio Code here. Zhe question is: how to install Visual Studio Code on Ubuntu and other Linux distributions.

the idea 1. Install Visual Studio Code in Linux using Snap
visual Studio Code is available as a Snap package. theUbuntu users can find it in the Software Center itself and install it in a couple of clicks.
Visual Studio Code in Ubuntu Software Center - but again: ubuntu is not the only linux - only one of many many distributions. The Idea of using snap is somewhat strange. Snap packaging means you can install it in any Linux distribution that supports Snap packages. Make sure to enable Snap support on your Linux distribution. if we are on a certain linux-system then we can then install VS Code using this command:
sudo snap install code --classic


idea 2
. Using the .deb/.rpm installation files: the good thing: the developer of the VSCode provides packages to install Visual Studio Code in Linux.


To go this way seems to be pretty easy: options under Linux. But what about the very intersting MX-Linux!?

also
https://code.visualstudio.com/#alt-downloads
just select the right one for you
As far as I can see mxlinux is based on Debian, so .deb package should work, right?

Also check Snapcraft.

As you can see Snap is also mentioned in the first link I shared

Also if your distro has Flatpack, vs code is also available there

Since it's open code you can just compile it.

hi there good day dear python-friends, Wink


many many thanks for the hints. i am very happy. I will follow your words and ideas to install VSCode on MX.

Yes : you were right: MX Linux is debian-based. So i am glad that i can use all the according ideas /& all the
experiences that exist in the "debian-world." So i hope that (also in MX) the powerful VSCode will run - without any issues - and that i am able to configure VSCode and the whole environment to work with Python.

Note: there are some great and very very helpful threads here in this great forum that help in these steps.

Thanks to Larz60+ to point out the intersting thread of snippsat - here; https://python-forum.io/Thread-VS-Code-f...ght=VSCode

conclusio: many many thanks for running this great page.


keep up the great project. it rocks

regards apollo Wink
