Sure it will. Which package did you try and what happened? See Visual Studio Code - ArchWiki

Wrong punctuation, please don’t shout.

Please see:

when i try to install visual-studio-code-bin 1.63.2-1 from AUR start build files and nothing hapen stuck in build files i wait for 30min i guess then i cancel

It’s a binary package, there’s nothing to build. Something happened, that’s why it didn’t succeed. How are you attempting to install it? Post the build log here as outlined in the tutorials I linked above.

Why not install code from the community repo?

You have a local configuration issue or you have a network issue blocking download of the source archives

Well, there’s yer prollem!

If you won’t install it, then you have an installation problem, yes.

If you won’t install it from the AUR, there’s always code from the repositories:

$ pamac search code

[...]
 code                                                                                                                                                                          [Installed] 1.62.0-1                                                community
The Open Source build of Visual Studio Code (vscode) editor

So it can be easily installed with:

pamac install code

you can avoid the pain of rebuilding from AUR by installing “code” from repository, or if you do insist on getting it from AUR, get vscodium (without M$ telemetry); AUR (en) - vscodium

FYI, base-devel is a package group. :wink:

I install Code-OSS last night, and i try to figure out the difference between visual-studio-code-bin and Code-OSS and to be honest i really don’t understand just get more confused
on Code-OSS i try to install this C/C++ IntelliSense, debugging, and code browsing i cant find it i dont why and i dont know how to use command in terminal yet

just use visual-studio-code-bin from the aur. it handles extensions and updates better than code. use yay -S visual-studio-code to install.

See Visual Studio Code - ArchWiki on how these differ on where they fetch the extensions from
