1. https://code.visualstudio.com/  에서 ubuntu 버전 vs code  설치
  2. sudo dpkg -i code_1.......deb   실행하여 vs code 설치
  3. vnc 를 통해 vs code 실행 또는 
    code  명령어로 터미널에서 실행이 가능



그런데 실행이 안되는 경우 아래 한줄 실행 하면 vs code 가 실행됨




I've installed vscode 1.0 on ubuntu 14.4 LTS. It works fine if I log in locally with unity desktop and type the "code" command in the terminal.

However, when I rdp into the box I have to use xfce4 desktop because xrdp apparently doesn't work with unity, and when I try to launch it from the command line there I get no errors in the terminal but the UI never appears.

I did previously install an older version of vscode and did not uninstall that prior to installing 1.0 in case that could be a factor.

when I type

code --version

it correctly reports 1.0.0

anyone have any ideas to solve this? I really want to be able to work using rdp from my windows 10 machine

UPDATE: this problem seems to only occur using rdp, if I login locally with xfce4 it works as expected just as with unity desktop. My ubuntu box an intel nuc5ppyh with latest bios, I think maybe code is launching on a not visible display output. Previously the box was configured to mirror to an hdmi output at I use this also connected to a tv. I've tried disabling the hdmi output from the bios and messing around with xrandr but still cannot get it working over rdp. I'm not a linux expert but still think it might actually be loading code in a non visible display output but not sure how to troubleshoot the problem



The suggested command from the second link above helps:

sudo sed -i 's/BIG-REQUESTS/_IG-REQUESTS/' /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libxcb.so.1
  • This single fix allowed me to run vscode on my AWS instance over xrdp without any other changes. – steviebJul 7 '16 at 20:37

This works fine, I am using Ubuntu 16.04 XRDP:

sudo sed -i 's/BIG-REQUESTS/_IG-REQUESTS/' /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libxcb.so.1
