I had not used VS Live Share in a while, but attempted to use it today only to learn that it does not work. In the VS Code "Live Share" tab, if I select any of the three "Join collaboration session...", "Start collaboration session...", or "Start read-only collaboration session..." links, nothing happens. If I click on the "Start Collaboration Session (Share)" icon at the top of the tab, I see an error notification pop up in the bottom right saying: command 'liveshare.startFromActivityBar' not found

When I close and open VS Code, I see a "Downloading dependencies...: Finishing VS Live Share installation..." message in the toolbar, but it takes forever to finish. When it finally does, I don't see the "Share" link/icon in the toolbar.

I tried VS Live Share on a mac and it works w/o issue.

Hey @mellis481 , it seems like your Live Share installation isn't completing successfully. Live Share isn't usable until its dependencies are downloaded and installed, and based on your description, it sounds like that process is failing.

Could you attach your logs to this issue (there's a command accessible via the command palette called Live Share: Export Logs)? That would help us see where dependency acquisition is failing. Alternatively, you can enable diagnostic logging (in your VS Code settings, set liveshare.diagnosticLogging to true) and check the output in the "Visual Studio Live Share" output pane after restarting VS Code.

@GeSnowBoy I've faced the same problem and I've solved it through running the command in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/liveshare/reference/linux

wget -O ~/vsls-reqs https://aka.ms/vsls-linux-prereq-script && chmod +x ~/vsls-reqs && ~/vsls-reqs
