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Please check this page before flagging as out-of-date.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.

@ghotrix, that's a network on your end. I can download the tarball just fine.

OpenSSL SSL_connect: SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL in connection to while trying to install. Does anyone also experienced such an error?

dcelasun commented on 2018-09-13 16:14

@pascenio, update your whole system first (pacman -Syu) before updating this one.

Hi guys!

I'm trying to update this package but get the following error:

error: the operation could not be prepared (the dependencies could not be satisfied) :: lib32-glibc: installing «glibc» (2.28-4) dependence breaks with «glibc=2.26»

Do you have some workaround for this issue?

dcelasun commented on 2018-09-12 09:57

@loodoons sorry, no idea. You might try asking on Github.

@dcelasun You're right. It was a GPU issue. Your answer fixed my problem.

Do you know why I've got this issue?
I've installed all the intel graphic drivers.

dcelasun commented on 2018-09-12 05:42

@loodoons, I can't reproduce the problem. The cli and .desktop launchers are meant to be separate, there have been many problems in the past when using the same one for both cases.

The issue you are seeing sounds like a gpu problem. Can you try replacing:

Exec=/opt/visual-studio-code/code %f


Exec=/opt/visual-studio-code/code --disable-gpu %f

and see if that fixes it?

loodoons commented on 2018-09-11 20:07

I found a bug that is annoying. When you drag and drop inside the user
interface, Code freeze. There's nothing in the log. This bug only occur when you launch the software with the .desktop file.
So I found a fix.

Just edit this file /usr/share/applications/visual-studio-code.desktop and replace this line

Exec=/opt/visual-studio-code/code %f


Exec=/opt/visual-studio-code/bin/code %f

I think there's missing many env var when you launch Code from /opt/visual-studio-code. Can you apply the fix in the package?

Thank you very much,
Guillaume Quittet

The Conflicts package should be changed to 'code'?

dcelasun commented on 2018-09-07 05:44

@Visione sure, will do so at the next version.
