How to install Visual Studio Code on Linux Mint 18

This posting is ~2 years years old. You should keep this in mind. IT is a short living business. This information might be outdated.

I have wrote about the installation of PowerShell Core in Linux Mint 18 yesterday. Today, I want to show you, how to install Visual Studio Code on Linux Mint 18. The installation is really easy:

  1. Download the deb package
  2. Install the deb package
  3. Run Visual Studio Code

You can download the latest packages for Windows, Linux (deb and rpm, if you want even a tar ball), and Mac on the Visual Studio Code download page. Download the deb file. To install the package, open a Terminal window and run dpkg .
