Keep it simple

Making VSCode work on a debian machine connected to via x2go

written on 4 March 2018
1. Install vscode (get deb package, install it and run `apt install -f`) 2. Install possibly missing dependencies on a headless server: ```bash apt install libgtk2.0-0 libxss-dev libgconf-2-4 libasound2 ``` 3. Fix vscode not starting up in x2go. Add this line to `/etc/x2go/x2goagent.options`: ```bash X2GO_NXAGENT_DEFAULT_OPTIONS+=" -extension BIG-REQUESTS" ``` 4. Restart x2go server and reconnect from x2go client
