So I installed Visual Studio Code on Ubuntu 18.04 and all seems well , except when I install an extension, any, It fails with cannot read property 'local' of undefined

it offers me the blue button to download manually and i do and find the local file and it also fails with same error. I believe its something to do with local permissions. but I give all the directories the

sudo chmod -R +rwx ~/anaconda3

same with directories with my application files

so no idea what do do next. a search for this error message comes back empty. believe it or not. Im starting to see that VSC is not used a lot on linux, so little support issues found. Mostly windows info.

Im only using VSC cause my tutorial is using it. :-/

any help appreciated.

  • What's your VSC version? It could be a bug, but I had to look it up first – Emmet Mar 26 at 1:31
