How do I install vscode?


#1

I apologize if this is overly basic but the lesson where we install a text editor has left me in the dust.

I have gone to https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/?dv=linux64_deb and downloaded the Linux version of Vscode, but how do I install this download into my virtual box?

Hi there,

Here is the link to the guide https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/setup/linux

Hope it helps :slight_smile:

I think where I am having trouble is how to get the file into the virtual box. When I attempt to run “sudo apt install ./.deb”

It comes back with "E: Unsupported file ./code_1.30.2-1546901646_amd64.deb given on commandline "

So it seems like the vscode file I’m trying to have the virtual box retrieve is inaccessible because it is downloaded somewhere outside of the virtual box?

You need to use the name of the file you downloaded.

In the example you need to replace with the actual filename.
