Some tips if you're having issues:

  1. If it complains about not being able to find .net core sdk, you can set the path in the preferences. Set it to /opt/dotnet/dotnet and it'll figure out the rest. (You do need to install dotnet-sdk, though)

  2. If it crashes shortly after opening a solution, try disabling the version control add-in (or just disable it in preferences). Worked for me

  3. If it works fine for a while and then randomly starts crashing, try applying this diff: This was recommended to me, but did not actually solve the issue. Maybe it'll work for you, though

  4. Logs are in ~/.cache/MonoDevelop/Logs

Please be aware that this package is compiled from source and will download around 400MB of data.

Also remember I don't develop this application, I simply maintain the PKGBUILD, for issues/bugs with the application itself log a report at after doing the usual google for a solution.

@WorseDoughnut Probably issues with incompatibility with the latest version of mono and the current version of msbuild-stable.

I would try using one of the binary versions however I am having issues building projects with this IDE due to the same underlying problem. If I can gonna create a new non-stable package for monodevelop however it requires the newest version of msbuild which at the moment is a huge pain due to its depends.

Is this actually working for anyone else? I've got pamac-manager telling me the build keeps failing on fsharp

I'm too much of a noob to find the actual issue in this log

Package is not out of date as it is newest stable build..

doctorzeus commented on 2019-09-23 03:02

I have not updated this application for a while due to the build profile "stable" no longer working on newer versions during build (see

Building without invalidates this package as being "stable" (hence monodevelop-stable) so until this is resolved cannot unfortunately update as there are no testing,stable,etc branches in the monodevelop git project.

@flamendless @Daniel_M

I still don't understand what you mean. My projects work, I can compile them using mono from cli, but they won't compile using Mono Develop. I don't even know what is.

flamendless commented on 2019-09-07 06:09


Yes, that is what I meant as @Daniel_M said

I assume he refers to "Please provide credentials for:"

KopfKrieg commented on 2019-09-06 02:40


Latest requires credential. Maybe use lower build?

Could you elaborate what you mean? I don't get it.

By the way, anyone else has problems with mono 6.x and monodevelop? None of my projects compile if I use the shortly released mono 6.x, but all work fine on mono 5.20. I re-built the monodevelop-stable package and removed all configuration files, but nothing helped. I also tried creating new projects and adjusting the mono binary path and what not, but nothing worked.

Can anyone confirm monodevelop-stable working with mono 6.x?
