MGCB Editor won't open in Ubuntu

OS: Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS

I followed all the steps on this page: Setting up your development environment for Linux | MonoGame Documentation

Setting up a new project in VSCode was no problem. VSCode then suggested I download the MGCB extension, which I proceeded to do.

When I right-click on the content file, I can select “Open in external editor” from the context menu. When I do that nothing happens.

Launching the terminal application with the “mgcb” command works fine, but I really would like to use the editor. Any ideas?

Why tho? It’s unnecessary and just plain bad, there are alternatives that offer better workflow.

thanks a lot, I was able to open the editor via the terminal as shown in the video. still weird that it wouldn’t work with the context menu.
