FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (read before flagging or commenting!)

  • What is the difference between this package and the one in the community repo?

This is the official binary distribution from Microsoft. The one in the community repo is an unofficial build made from source. Beyond the license difference and branding, there are some proprietary features not available in the open source version.

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Please check this page before flagging as out-of-date.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

  • I'm using an AUR helper (yay, yaourt etc.) and I can't install it. Why?

Sometimes AUR helpers do weird things. Download the tarball and install it manually with makepkg -si. If that works, report the problem to your AUR helper's upstream, not here.

  • When I install this package xdg-open uses vscode, not my file manager! How do I fix this?

Install shared-mime-info-gnome. Also see this reddit thread.

  • 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), 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 this package, can I email you?

No, you won't get a reply. Please stop doing this. Leave a comment here instead and be patient.

You alright, but after started, no gui was showed, no screen. Is possible to see all the process running, then i had to kill then.

dcelasun commented on 2015-05-06 14:01

Those lines shouldn't prevent it from starting. The output I get when running from the command line is below. After these lines it launches normally.

Hurray!

dcelasun commented on 2015-04-30 06:06

Of course! I've added both packages to provides and bumped pkgrel.

yan12125 commented on 2015-04-30 05:49

Thanks a lot for the package :) Can you add vscode to provides so more people can find here? In my case I first searched for vscode and found @SirCmpwn's package.

karol_007 commented on 2015-04-29 19:39

I think we only need one package, so it's either this or https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/visual-studio-code/ , right? They do differ a bit though.

jnbek commented on 2015-04-29 19:14

Too late: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/visual-studio-code/ beat you to it.
