Neither installation nor compilation of monodevelop on arch linux were succesful. (2022-03)
I spent many hours but there were some missed packages which I couldn't find. (like glade-sharp-2.0, fsharpc)

So, I thought of testing something... I copied Monodevelop (v7.8.4) files from Ubuntu 20.04 to Arch Linux.

Copied from (Ubuntu): /usr/lib/monodevelop/
Pasted to (Arch Linux): ~/apps/monodevelop/

To run monodevelop on Arch Linux:

  • mono ${HOME}/apps/monodevelop/bin/MonoDevelop.exe

or better, copy the script from /usr/bin/monodevelop on Ubuntu and change the path accordingly to whatever it is on Arch Linux.

After installing mono package, it looks like it's working so far.
But for asp.net projects, xsp4 should be installed using AUR.

pacman -S mono
yay -S xsp

Some extra packages may be needed:

pacman -S gtk-sharp-2 gtk-sharp-3
