how to install vscode on linux lite

(1/1)

Zaid Ouardi:
sudo apt install code
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package code
 
I don't know why vs code isn't installing

Note :I just installed linux lite as my first ever linux distro and i wanted to use it to learnto code and then contribute to open source projects (like: Linux lite and other linux distros + emulators).
ANd i'm completely new to linux even thoughit's my favourite OS and i even watch dozens of linux related youtube videos.

Plz i'm asking help from the wonderful community of Linux lite and LINUX in general.

Have you ran the previous commands?   https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/setup/linux


You can download and install the .deb or via the wget command - then can you run the 'install code'

Moltke:
You can use VSCodium too https://github.com/VSCodium/vscodium/releases it's the same pkg minus telemetry=no spying from Microsoft as explained in that page
--- Quote ---binary releases of VS Code without MS branding/telemetry/licensing

. There is a .deb pkg and an Appimage as well https://docs.appimage.org/user-guide/faq.html#question-what-is-an-appimage. I use it and it works great. :)
