FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (read before flagging or commenting!)

  • There is a new version out, why is the package not updated?

Please check this page before flagging as out-of-date. If there is no new version on that page, it's not yet released. A tag on Github is NOT a release! If you can see the new version on the updates page but the AUR package is still not updated, flag it and give it time. It's usually done within a day or two.

  • Why is $X a dependency? I don't like it.

Just because $X is not required to open the app, doesn't mean there is nothing that depends on it. Always search the comment history on AUR to see if that dependency has been previously discussed before writing your own comment. Still nothing? Then use namcap to make sure it's really not needed. If namcap doesn't complain, please leave a comment here and I'll investigate.

  • Something is broken with the app, where do I report it?

The problem might be a packaging issue (wrong paths, dependencies, icons etc), so please write a comment here first. If you don't get a reply, or if someone says it's an upstream issue, you can report it on Github.

  • I have a problem with the package or the program itself, can I email you?

No. You won't get a reply. Leave a comment here instead and be patient.

  • What happened to visual-studio-code?

It got renamed with a -bin suffix. If you have the original package installed, you will be prompted to delete it when you install this package for the first time.

OK, I've restored StartupWMClass.

@dcelasun I agree with @jgierer12.

I haven't been using VS Code for a long time, so my advice for @nix6839 was more in general manner, but after looking into it more I don't think this is upstream issue.

Hi @dcelasun, I don't think this is an upstream issue. The PR you linked removed the StartupWMClass from visual-studio-code-url-handler.desktop, but not from visual-studio-code.desktop. I'm having the same issue as @nix6839 and was also able to fix it by re-adding StartupWMClass=code into the latter file.

nix6839 commented on 2018-12-15 14:45

@Anty0 I'm not fixed that way either.

nix6839 commented on 2018-12-15 14:44

@dcelasun I hope to put it in visual-studio-code.desktop. (Ref to and

@nix6839 Try re-add (remove it and add it again) VS Code to your favorites. You probably have added wrong one (the one which was starting before fix).

dcelasun commented on 2018-12-15 08:33

@nix6839, since that was done on purpose, you should report it upstream.

nix6839 commented on 2018-12-15 04:07

Please re-add "StartupWMClass". Without it, an error occurs. The error is as follows the dock contains multiple copies of the same icon.

@teohhanhui, thanks for the heads up. This should be working now, e.g xdg-open vscode://file/etc/pacman.conf or xdg-open vscode-insiders://file/etc/pacman.conf for the insiders build.
