Running VS Code on Linux

Installation

  1. Download Visual Studio Code for your distribution, .deb for Debian-based distributions such as Ubuntu or .rpm for Red Hat-based distributions such as Fedora or CentOS. Note that 32-bit binaries are also available on the download page.
  2. Install the package through a GUI package manager by double clicking on the package file, or through the command line:
 # For .deb
 sudo dpkg -i <file>.deb
 # install dependencies
 sudo apt-get install -f

 # For .rpm (Fedora 21 and below)
 sudo yum install <file>.rpm

 # For .rpm (Fedora 22 and above)
 sudo dnf install <file>.rpm
  1. VS Code should now be available to run through the launcher or the command line by running code.

Tip: Run code . in any folder to start editing files in that folder.

Note:

Visual Studio is tightly integrated with Windows and Developing a .NET application using any language (C# or VB) takes more than just having Wine, and since Wine is not capable enough to provide complete development runtime as .NET in Linux.

If you want to develop software specifically in C#, on Linux, you can use MonoDevelop

Since, you’re asking for Visual Studio 2010 (.NET 4.0), with MonoDevelop, you’ll not be able to develop an app that particularly uses .NET 4, as of now MonoDevelop is in version 3.0.2 (somewhat equivalent to .NET 3.0).

You can still use Windows virtually within Ubuntu, using VirtualBox. And then install Visual Studio there, but still a serious app development is not recommended to be done in Virtualized environment.
