I see someone has already asked about using vscode as an external editor on linux however the answer seemed to indicate it was a bug with the flatpak version or if using the flatpak to use flatpak-spawn. I do not use flatpaks, they are not a solution to packages. I use the official community/godot 3.4.stable.arch_linux package on Manjaro Linux having previously tried the Steam version. Both of these are unable to launch vscode using the documented https://docs.godotengine.org/en/stable/getting_started/editor/external_editor.html methods. Where which code-oss in my case is '/usr/bin/code-oss'

I am running Manjaro Linux - Gnome [official release] How could I run this or any other editor I choose to switch to as I may go back go vim as well some day. Godot should be able to execute these, its not a security violation.

Godot version 3.4.stable.arch_linux

Can you launch VS Code with the code command?

If not, create a symbolic link /usr/bin/code to /usr/bin/code-oss.

this has worked for me thank you
