How To Install Visual Studio Code on Fedora 37

Install Visual Studio Code on Fedora 37

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Visual Studio Code on Fedora 37. For those of you who didn’t know, Visual Studio Code a.k.a VS Code is a free, cross-platform, and open-source code editor developed by Microsoft. VS Code brings features that include support for debugging, embedded Git control, intelligent code completion, snippets, and code refactoring. It is free and available on your favorite platforms such as Linux, macOS, and Windows.

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 VS Code on a Fedora 37.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 37.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • 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.

Install Visual Studio Code on Fedora 37

Step 1. Before proceeding, update your Fedora operating system to make sure all existing packages are up to date. Use this command to update the server packages:

sudo dnf upgrade
sudo dnf update

Next, import the GPG key using the following command:

sudo rpm --import https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc
