When I wrote about how to install Visual Studio Code on a Raspberry Pi, there was an error on the app running on the device: the tool opened and display a black window.
We needed to manually go back to version 1.29 to avoid this problem. And we also forgot to apply any updates, each new version still have the black window error.
I was following the issue on GitHub, and I was happy when a few days ago, it was solved by headmelted (link https://github.com/headmelted/codebuilds/issues/67#issuecomment-563335451).
I’ve updated the app to the latest version (1.42.0), and it was working fine.
If we check the apt list, we can find a specific detail of the running version with the command
sudo apt list --installed | grep -i code-oss
So, please go and thank headmelted by the amazing work he is doing!

I’m on 1.59, and the blank black window is back.
I haven’t used VSCode on the device in a while.
I may give it a try later tomorrow and update the post.
