In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Visual Studio Code on Fedora 39. Visual Studio Code (VS Code) is a popular and versatile code editor used by developers worldwide. It’s known for its lightweight, yet powerful features, making it an excellent choice for coding projects of all sizes.

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 39.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 39.
  • 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).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Visual Studio Code.
  • Many installation tasks require administrative privileges. Make sure you have superuser or root access to execute commands with elevated permissions.
