It’s been a while since i worked with PowerShell on Linux Mint.

My install of PowerShell was corrupt and VS Code was out of date.

I decided to uninstall them both and reinstall from scratch.

sudo apt-get remove powershell
sudo apt-get remove code

To install PS Core 6.1
Add the MS Keys and Repo

curl https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | sudo apt-key add -
curl https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/16.04/prod.list | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/microsoft.list

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install powershell -y
Type pwsh to start PowerShell

I installed VSC from the Software Manager which had 1.28 the current version
Open Extensions: Search and install Powershell, reload.
Press F1 > Settings JSON > Enter the following paths:

"powershell.powerShellExePath": "/opt/microsoft/powershell/6/pwsh"
"terminal.integrated.shell.linux": "/opt/microsoft/powershell/6/pwsh"

Save the settings file > F1 > Reload Window
PowerShell should now be setup with the Integrated Terminal in VSC.
