    Hi,
    after some struggling with Unity Editor and VS Code I found how to make it work with Intellisense on my Linux Mint 20:

    I did these steps to make it work with Itellisense in Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon (son of Ubuntu 20.04):

    0. I assume you already have Unity Editor running with the latest nvidia drivers installed
    1. Install VS Studio from .deb file (https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/setup/linux)
    2. Open VS Code and install de C# extension OmniSharp (you will be asked to install it when you open VS Code). Afterwards, close VS Code
    2. Install .net SDK from here: https://docs.microsoft.com/es-es/dotnet/core/install/linux-ubuntu#2004-
    3. Install latest Mono release (Ubuntu 20.04): https://www.mono-project.com/download/vs/
    But the next line must be replaced:
    deb https://download.mono-project.com/repo/ubuntu vs-focal main
    for this one:
    deb [arch=amd64] https://download.mono-project.com/repo/ubuntu vs-focal main

    (just added [arch=amd64] )

    4. Open VS Code, go to menu File - Preferences - Settings - Extension - C# configuration
    look for "Omnisharp: Use Global Mono", and set it to "always".
    5. Close VS Code
    6. Go to Unity menu Edit - Preferences - External Tools - External Script Editor, and pick "Visual Studio Code"
    7. In the same window, check "Embedded packages", "Local packages", "Built-in packages", "Git packages" and after click on "Regenerate project files"
    8. I recommend to add the Unity Snippets, for events like OnMouseDown, OnEnterCollider...:

    9. Also recommend these Unity extensions:

    Hope it helps

    [EDIT 21-10-2020] Interesting extensions

    Thanks for spoting the mistake. On step 4 should be "Omnisharp: Use Global Mono" and not "Mono Path". Now it has been fixed.

    I followed all the steps, but when I open Unity to set VS Code as External Script Editor, it is not shown. If I click 'browse', Unity can't find the location even if it exists

    It wasn't shown for me either, and it took a bit of browsing to find where it was located (at least for me, I'm not that familiar with Linux's file structure). I'm using Ubuntu and for me it was located in /usr/share/code. Select the file that's just named "code" and it should work!
