    I'd recommend against Snap and Flatpak, the native version works much better on any distro. Do note that Arch-based distributions come with multiple package options for different VS Code distributions. Use code if you want the FOSS-distro from the Arch community, vscodium-bin if you want VSCodium, or visual-studio-code-bin if you want Microsoft's proprietary Visual Studio Code distribution.

You’ll need to use another integrated development environment (IDE), like Visual Studio Code (VS Code) because Salesforce has released an extension pack to make lwc development easier and faster.
