hey guys, @Icelk set up a script that checks for new releases and pushes updates if there are any new ones. I believe it runs every hour so there's no need to flag OOD, unless there's something that needs changed with the PKGBUILD

@soorajsp I had some time to look into this today. I can log into a GitHub account, but the settings sync request returns an 401 (see the vscode output for Settings Sync). I've also searched the vscodium git for issues relating to this. I advice you to open an issue over there. The product.json seems to point to the correct endpoint. I suspect VSCodium for some reason doesn't send an authorization header when trying to sync with a GitHub account.

Sorry for the delay.

As for why visual-studio-code-bin works, I think that has to do with Microsoft's proprietary build steps - VSCodium must've missed something.

@Icelk, we can turn it on by pressing the Account Icon in bottom-left (just above the settings), and selecting "Turn sync on". No I didnt get a chance to login, it never opened the browser to github, it just throws the error I mentioned. And we can do the sync with microsoft, and it works perfect. It opens the browser window to authenticate with MS creds. But this never works with Sync with GitHub. (It works in visual-studio-code-bin)

Hi! Disclaimer: I haven't tested this feature. How do you turn it on? To me, it seems like an authentication error. Did you get the chance to log in with GitHub? Maybe try to uninstall this package and vscodium-bin-features and to clear the authentication cache for vscodium (where that now is located)

Hi, Setting sync is not working with github (vscodium-bin-features are installed). It throws this error:

Error while turning on Settings Sync: Authentication failed.

Log from output tab:

2022-11-04 13:26:53.026 [info] Request failed {"url":"","status":401,"execution-id":"8956ffac-7468-4583-86e5-77f89xxxxxxx"}

What's the difference between this package and code from the official repos?

@nik_gr I believe this is done to add codium to the open-with context menu. If you want another app to open, you can always create your own .desktop file (and e.g. open the folder in you terminal of choice) or just remove the default open with choice using the xdg utilities.

Something that annoyed me for a while until I got time to figure this out...

Why do you register as MIME handler (codium.desktop) for text/plain and inode/directory???


This results in opening VS Code when you least expect it :)

@willemw This is now resolved. I kept vscode in the provides array so this can't be installed together with visual-studio-code-bin. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

It is not necessary to list 'vscodium-git' in conflicts.


is sufficient to deal with all the vscodium packages.
