==> ERROR: visual-studio-code-bin is not available for the 'aarch64' architecture.

I'm trying to install vscode. Google and vscode official site directs me here https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/visua...o-code-bin

I run makepkg -si and I get the above error once I've downloaded the repo and switched to the folder with bin. How can I install vscode? I have the default manjaro.

Looks like a problem with the package: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/vscodium-wor...gain/13978

Edit: my mistake, you were talking about the official vscode which does not have an aarch64 (ARM) package. The Pinebooks have ARM processors and cannot use x86 packages. Try the vscodium package instead.

I'm no expert on make but if you change architecture (arch=) in an Arch aur pkgbuild to include aarch64 it can build to work on arm, I did it with timeshift in Manjaro's aur and it built and works.

Unfortunately that's a binary package. So it's a no go

Have you come across this? https://github.com/futurejones/code-oss-aarch64

I have not tried with pbp, but I did managed to build vscode in PINE A64 with dietpi os and it is working fine

So how can I do this since it's for Ubuntu using apt and I have Manjaro? These are all rookie questions but this is my first time using anything outside a major OS or linux flavour.
I'm getting fed up with it cuz my pbp is just a brick so far using it.

I tried to use vscodium https://github.com/VSCodium/vscodium which I then go to https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/vscodium-bin/. But there are no instructions on how to run this. What do I do?

I've also tried installing snap and following this https://snapcraft.io/install/code/manjaro#install but I get `GLIBC_2.28' not found when I even try to just run snap command, so nothing related specifically to vscode. Any further advice? I haven't been able to debug this issue yet via googling.

Just how you tried to do it before?

https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Arch_...UR_by_hand

$ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/vscodium-bin.git
$ cd vscodium-bin
$ makepkg -si

(I did makepkg -s and then installed it,
$ sudo pacman -U vscodium-bin-1.50.0-1-aarch64.pkg.tar.xz)

Then VSCodium shows up under Xfce's application menu in the Development section and seems to run. Or invoke as vscodium from the command line.

How do I tell what GIU I have? Mine looks different than Xcfe.    

For some reason makepkg -s  or -si returned command not found. I somehow got plain makepkg to work. I then has able to click on vscodium-bin.desktop and get the editor to run. Hopefully it will works as expected now!

I have noticed today, that there are official ARM64 releases of vscode now: https://code.visualstudio.com/#alt-downloads Wink
I have tried the .tar.gz version on Manjaro and seems to work well.
