Install Visual Studio Code on Fedora 35

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Visual Studio Code on Fedora 35. For those of you who didn’t know, Visual Studio Code, developed by Microsoft, has rapidly gained popularity among developers worldwide due to its powerful features, extensive customization options, and cross-platform compatibility. This open-source code editor supports a wide range of programming languages and offers a rich ecosystem of extensions, making it a versatile choice for various development tasks.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Visual Studio Code on a Fedora 35.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 35 or Fedora 34.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • A stable internet connection for downloading the necessary packages.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
