    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 (
    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:
    3. Install latest Mono release (Ubuntu 20.04):
    But the next line must be replaced:
    deb vs-focal main
    for this one:
    deb [arch=amd64] 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"

    Hope it helps

    Thank you!!
    However I had to edit "Omnisharp: Use Global Mono" To "always" to get it to work!!
    Thank you for a great guide! :)

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