Install Visual Studio in Ubuntu 18.04

The Easy Way

You can install visual studio code in Ubuntu from snap environment

alex@alexa-pc:~$ sudo snap install vscode

The problem with the snap application that they are installed in sand boxed environment. Hard to recommend it.

Another way around

Go to and click for the .deb package. After download. Press CTRL+ALT+T, the terminal will appear and write:-

alex@alexa-pc:~$ cd ~/Downloads
alex@alexa-pc:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i code_1.27.2-1536736588_amd64.deb

And enjoy using it. The version 1.27.2-1536736588 from previous code is changing.
