What is visual studio ?

Visual Studio Code (VSCode) is a free, open-source code editor developed by Microsoft. It has gained widespread popularity among developers for its versatility, ease of use, and extensive ecosystem of extensions and plugins. VSCode is designed to be a lightweight yet powerful code editor that can be used for a wide range of programming languages and development tasks.

How to install vscode on Linux computer

You can install Visual Studio Code (VSCode) on a Linux computer using different methods depending on your Linux distribution. Here are instructions for installing VSCode on some popular Linux distributions:

You can install VSCode on Ubuntu or Debian-based distributions using the following commands:

 Update the package list

$ sudo apt update

Install dependencies

$ sudo apt install software-properties-common apt-transport-https wget

Import the Microsoft GPG key

$ wget -qO- | gpg --dearmor >
sudo mv /usr/share/keyrings

Add the Visual Studio Code repository

$ echo "deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/] stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/vscode.list

 Update the package list again

$ sudo apt update

Install Visual Studio Code

$ sudo apt install code

After running these commands, VSCode should be installed on your Ubuntu/Debian system.

Install vscode on fedora

You can install VSCode on Fedora using the following commands:

Install Visual Studio Code
$ sudo rpm --import

$ sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo=

$ sudo dnf install code

This will install VSCode on your Fedora system.

Install vscode on arch Linux:

For Arch Linux, you can use the Arch User Repository (AUR) to install VSCode. You'll need an AUR helper like yay or you can build the package manually.

 Install yay if not already installed

$ sudo pacman -S yay

 Install Visual Studio Code

$ yay -S visual-studio-code-bin

# Install yay if not already installed
sudo pacman -S yay

Building manually:

Clone the AUR repository

$ git clone

 Navigate to the cloned directory

$ cd visual-studio-code-bin

 Build and install the package

$ makepkg -si

After either method, VSCode should be installed on your Arch Linux system.

If you're using a different Linux distribution, you can check the official Visual Studio Code website for installation instructions specific to your distribution.
