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.

I've installed mono 5.4 and msbuild 15.4, but when installing this package, I get the messages:

MSBuild auto-detection: using msbuild version '14.0' from '/usr/lib/mono/xbuild/14.0/bin'.

WARNING: Error reading msbuild project information, ensure that your input solution or project file is valid. NETCore and UAP projects will be skipped, only packages.config files will be restored.

and some other errors:

Add this line in build section. before the call to ./configure.

export MONO_IOMAP=all

This will make mono case insensitive when searching nugget packages. It worked for me.

One of the deps "msbuild-15" has a nonexistent path failed to verify msbuild-15-bin integrity

requires mono-addins but: error: mono-addins: key "Daniel Isenmann" is disabled :: File /var/cache/pacman/pkg/mono-addins-1.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz is corrupted (invalid or corrupted package (PGP signature)).

Also, as for another dependency of monodevelop, no mono works right now. The git version has a SIGABORT during make (I reported it on their GitHub page).

Why does this install an older version than the monodevelop-stable package?

poikilos commented on 2017-11-17 02:14

You have to have mono (from arch) installed in order to install mono-stable (probably because the compiler is written in C# and may need to be compiled during install from AUR), then that mono will be removed and mono-stable will take over (confirmed: if you then type mono --version it will be version of mono-stable such as However, after doing that, attempting to install monodevelop-stable results in "invalid or corrupted package:" (no further information is in the "Failed to commit transaction" dialog).
