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)...

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?

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@Toric Mono site seems to be rather out of date in some aspects since Xamarin (and as its parent Microsoft) took over.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.
