Instructions for Installing VS Code on Manjaro
#1
Hi Guys,

I couldn't find this anywhere else so I decided to post what I did. Hope it helps. This is not the legit, fully supported VS Code so use at your own risk I guess!


Code:
git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/code-headmelted-bin.git

Code:
cd code-headmelted-bin
Code:
makepkg --install
EDIT: if you get something like:
==> ERROR: Cannot find the fakeroot binary.
==> ERROR: Cannot find the strip binary required for object file stripping.
you need to install dev tools...
Code:
sudo pacman -S base-devel
And that should be it! You can now open VS Code with command:
Code:
code-oss


Happy coding.

Woops, I put this in Pinebook section instead of Pinebook Pro. I've only ever tried this on PBP so if you are on a Pinebook YMMV. Might need to re-move to the PBP section.

Thanks for pointing that out! Moved to PBP forums.
