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Please check this page before flagging as out-of-date.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

I've been running into the same issue as @mxbonn. It took a bit of digging, but I'm fairly certain I'm running into the same issue as From what I can tell, a regression in 1.82 breaks running natively in Wayland; only running in XWayland works for me, which is disappointing, but it seems like there's not much we can do other than wait for this to get fixed upstream.

v1.82.0-1 works 100% for me on my desktop and on a clean install of Arch

mxbonn commented on 2023-09-10 09:38 (UTC)

Updated to v1.82.0-1 and app crashes split second after opening.

@PHLAK mine is not blurry, but if I try to open a second window, it crashes

PHLAK commented on 2023-09-08 15:22 (UTC)

Updated to v1.82.0-1 and my app is blurry even when running with --ozone-platform-hint=auto. I assume this is due to the update to Electron 25. Is there a way to fix this?

code tunnel is not working. The output is : spawn /opt/visual-studio-code/bin/code-tunnel ENOENT There is a related issue but it is closed:

@mazix the latest version is still 1.80.2 here.

@mazix if there is a new version out you're welcome to use "Flag package out-of-date" in this page instead of commenting please
