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.

So xterm is not always needed, but it can be added as an dependency if you don't have a supported terminal installed.

Yeah, it's not always needed, but nowhere was a note saying that. Maybe it should be added as optional dependency at least.

If you use a XFCE-based distribution, it can use xfce4-terminal. I recall the source code contained some support for various terminals (including xterm), so you'll only need xterm if your desktop environment's terminal is not supported.

So xterm is not always needed, but it can be added as an dependency if you don't have a supported terminal installed.

EDIT: Back then there was a bug that prevented xfce4-terminal from being usable. Actually, one should pass "-x" instead of "-e". The bug was already corrected upstream in latest releases, not sure if the current version contained the fix.

Please add xterm as dependency (in the line "depends", not just in "makedepends"). Executing binaries only works if xterm is installed.

@Toric Mono site seems to be rather out of date in some aspects since Xamarin (and as its parent Microsoft) took over. E.g. xsp and mod_mono seem to now be dead.

The release is on github and is specified as stable due to the build argument "stable" being specified.

Toric commented on 2019-07-08 04:12

According to, the current latest version is Is 7.8 not stable?

To fix the libgit2 crashing on any project with git enabled you must compile it against OpenSSL-1.0

Append this line to the prepare()

sed -i -e 's|-DCMAKE_SKIP_RPATH=TRUE|-DCMAKE_SKIP_RPATH=TRUE -DOPENSSL_ROOT_DIR=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0 -DOPENSSL_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/openssl-1.0|g' $srcdir/monodevelop/main/src/addins/VersionControl/MonoDevelop.VersionControl.Git/

libgit2 was being compiled against OpenSSL-1.1 otherwise making it crash.

Not quite as we are taking a .deb package that was only primarily designed to be used on debian-based distros. If we want to do something to make it work with arch that's on our end.

Tire* not wheel.Different tires, different standards of size.

Is there a proper way to fix the conflict between gtk-sharp-2 and gtk-sharp-3?

As it was previously pointed out, having gtk-sharp-3 installed prevents this package from being compiled. However, some other stuffs (like monogame-bin) actually depends on gtk-sharp-3 so they'll be uninstalled as well when uninstalling gtk-sharp-3 (and I'll need to rebuild them as well), even if's only temporary, for ensuring a successful build of this package.

Issue created at Github

:laughing: - Yeah - that is what we are doing when we refactor a deb package to a pkg.

Something like buying wheels to Mercedes and retrofit to a Porche - :laughing:

@fhdk I'm not arguing against the validity of your solution. It's just not a distro or OS specifically targeted application so it definitely needs to be something that is generated from configurable vars pre-make as opposed to something the dev's have just plopped in there from their own systems or distro they use.

Again i'm happy to fix this up in the short term but again it should be something that is queried on github for the future. I'm talking from a software development standpoint here.

It's like buying what is meant to be a standardized tire size which actually only fits perfectly for one type of car. So then all the other people who buy it have to end up modifying it themselves so it actually fits on their car. What your saying to me is that this is totally fine. :P
