This is still an open issue:
You can add the parameters to the startup script /opt/visual-studio-code/bin/code, but this is not a stable solution since you have to do this again for every update.

Thank you xaver!

code --high-dpi-support=true --force-device-scale-factor=1.5 # works great!

But how do I save this preference in a config?

xaver commented on 2017-06-19 08:49

Have you tried `code --high-dpi-support=true --force-device-scale-factor=2`?

How do I get the font size bigger in the menu?

@NicoHood: Please read what I wrote, a few comments down from yours. Basically, you are looking for this [0].

I might be wrong, but isnt this package open source as MIT license?

Why dont you build from source instead?

This will change again before very long, but as of 2017-05-15 the current version is 1.12.2. This won't build unless in PKGBUILD you change md5sums_x86_64 to:


I would think a better solution though would be to download a specific version of VS Code as opposed to the latest. That way the PKGBUILD will at least work instead of giving an MD5 error, although it will build an out-of-date version. To do that, change source_x86_64 to:

Shouldn't this package have a -bin suffix then?

dcelasun commented on 2017-05-05 18:56

As mentioned in the package description, this is the official binary compiled and distributed by upstream. The main difference is the extension manager: This package supports the extension gallery [0], the oss version doesn't (by default). See the note in the PKGBUILD [1] for details.

Hello, what's the difference between this package and 'visual-studio-code-oss'? I thought vscode was open source by default..
