I have a laptop running Windows 10 and Ubuntu. I'm studying programming based on the .NET framework, so I need to run Visual Studio. I'd like to either somehow, install Visual Studio in Ubuntu or run a Windows VM from Ubuntu. Is it possible to run the already installed OS from a VM and keep them both side by side? Thanks!
If you don't need the IDE you can install Visual Studio Code on Ubuntu.
First, click here to visit the download page for Visual Studio. Scroll down and click on the box that says "deb" and "Ubuntu".
Next, assuming you downloaded the file to your
~/Downloads directory, run the following commands:
sudo apt update sudo apt install gdebi sudo gdebi ~/Downloads/code*amd64.deb
Alternatively, you can install the vscode from the snap store by running the following commands instead.
Run the following command install the stable version:
sudo snap install code --classic
Alternatively, you can install the unstable version by running the following command instead:
sudo snap install code-insiders --classic
