Problem :

I am trying to install the visual studio code on the Ubuntu VM also I am using c++. But I am facing the following error message which is often covering my pages tab at the top and it is very frustrating:

Please install [clang](http://clang.llvm.org/) or check configuration `clang.executable`

I tried to install the clang using following command apt-get install llvm.

I have also installed the C++ support from the required packages.

I am now completely confused have anyone ever faced the above error and have the solution on it ?

Solution :

I think the clang is not correctly installed on the ubuntu box.

Please try to Install clang by following commands:

sudo apt-get install clang
clang -v //Please check the installed version

Now your error must be fixed.


I also had faced the same problem in recent past and also solved it with the below steps:

1.  I had firstly installed the llvm plus clang which is available on the following link http://releases.llvm.org/

2.  After that I had installed the C++ language adapter which is available on the following link https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=mitaki28.vscode-clang

3.  Lastly I configured the path of the llvm/bin folder installed in Step 1 above and in the visual studios code that has the 'user settings', with the help of clang.executable: variable. After that please refer to the Step 2 from 'configuration' section explained in the above url.
