According to the issue described by kingkhan94,, for the last year or so MonoDevelop 8.0 has not been buildable on anything but Mac. The community has created a fork for a new environment at

MonoDevelop (8.X) no loger compile in Linux (only Mac)...

"Embrace, extend, and extinguish!" (EEE) =[

Possible solution is using .

Install using pamac following packages

  • monodevelop-bin
  • mono-msbuild
  • mono-msbuild-sdkresolver

Hope this helps!

UPDATE: Install xps to easily debug web projects (ASP.NET)...

Build process is still broken. Monodevelop-stable wants to compile with msbuild 15.0 but its dependency msbuild-stable is version 16.0. So the compiler returns a not found error for msbuild 15.0 files.

Updated the PKGBUILD. Changed the Build profile from stable to gnome (one of the only profiles which seem to work currently)

I'd like to participate in the package maintenance and help you out getting the package running again

fsharp should not be required

The build process is currently broken and the documentation is incomplete.

Since the issues with compatibility with the latest version of mono and msbuild as well as there no longer being a "stable" build mode on the github project I am disowning this project.

Sadly I stopped using this IDE in favor of VSCode a while ago and also no longer have the time to maintain it with the large number of incompatibilities with the various dependencies.

Hopefully someone with more time will take over..

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Package is not out of date as it is newest stable build..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