    Hi aminsoraya,

    There are two ways to install vs code on Ubuntu:

    1.As what mgebhard said, Microsoft provides packages to install Visual Studio Code in Linux. Just head over to the download page of Visual Studio Code below and you’ll find the .deb(for Ubuntu) and .rpm files (for Fedora) options under Linux.

    Download Visual Studio Code

    If you are running Ubuntu or any other Linux distribution based on Ubuntu such as Linux Mint, elementary OS etc, you need to opt for .deb file. .rpm is for Fedora and SUSE based Linux distributions.

    2.Visual Studio Code is available as a Snap package. Ubuntu users can find it in the Software Center itself and install it in a couple of clicks.

    Snap packaging means you can install it in any Linux distribution that supports Snap packages. Make sure to enable Snap support on your Linux distribution.

    You can then install VS Code using this command:

    sudo snap install code --classic

    Have you tried the VS Code site?

    It is just a traditional paradox of open source. Nothing is impossible as you have the source code, but its maintainers (like Microsoft) only have limited resources to support the major Linux distributions.

    So, if you want best support, pick up a major distro like Ubuntu. If you do want to use lubuntu, then you are responsible for everything in your way. Like the other comment said, you might install VSCode via Snap and hope it works fine.
