I have recently installed VS code in my system, and added julia as an extension in it. However I have not been able to run julia scripts in it !
I was trying to run a simple
helloworld script but it ended up with this message
The terminal process failed to launch: Path to shell executable "julia" is not a file or a symlink.
Can you be more specific? What button or command are you using in VSCode to try to run your script? Also, I assume you already had Julia installed on your computer before you installed VSCode and the Julia extension.
Yes I had Julia installed already!
Just wrote a one liner on Hello world and then clicked the green Run button as required!
I recommend taking a look at our “Getting Started” tutorial. In particular, you’ll need to point the extension to your Julia installation.
Might be overkill, but since it’s out there, here’s a video that shows how to set up the extension, and, in particular, where to verify that your julia installation is found.
In case you use Windows, the portable Julia solves your problem by setting everything up automatically.
