According to this ( aur/visual-studio-code-bin 1.56.0-2 comes with electron 12

FYI, code-insiders seems to now work perfectly with code-insiders --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland if anybody wants to use the official vscode vs the code-oss version.

Can also confirm that 12.0.0.beta.30-1 is the latest version that works for me. Although electron 12 is out I don't believe VSCode supports it yet ( and the electron-12.x.y branch.

I can confirm 1.54.2-2 does not fix the issue with the latest electron13 (13.0.0.beta.4-1), it also does not work with the latest electron-beta (12.0.2-1), for me the only electron version that currently works is 12.0.0.beta.30-1. All other electron versions I have tried do not draw the window at all.

Same issue as linos has, with the electron12-bin v12.0.2-1 VS Code launches, but the window stays empty. This new electron12 package fixed the cursor size bugs i had in Discord, so it would be nice to have this working with VS Code as well. Though when looking at this, code might not be ready yet for the latest version of Electron 12.

Window doesn't draw on startup with the new electron12-bin Version 12.0.1-1.

Hi nitsky, Thanks for your feedback. The problem was fixed in 1.54.2-2. Please update your package. The prebuilt version can be downloaded from Thanks.

With the latest update, I had to change electron-beta to electron12 in /usr/bin/code to get it to start up.

A dependency somewhere must have some naive version wildcard declared (or the package it depends upon thought increasing the minimum node version was just a minor change) because I'm getting this error:

error got@11.8.1: The engine "node" is incompatible with this module. Expected version ">=10.19.0". Got "10.18.1"

Hi mattj, Thanks for reminding me. In terms of electron-beta-bin changing from electron12 to electron13. I updated visual-studio-code-wayland to 1.54.2 with electron12-bin instead of electron-beta-bin. You can download prebuilt version from
