   pacman -S Flatpak

Execute the following as a normal user.

   flatpak install --user --from https://download.mono-project.com/repo/monodevelop.flatpakref

At this point you may be asked to install the freedesktop sdk, respond with a y to thizs.

The newly installed MonoDevelop can be run from a shell using

In Gnome 3 the Mono Develop icon can be found under programming. Flatpak expects window managers to respect the XDG_DATA_DIRS environment variable to discover applications.

Uninstall

The above installs the application for the current user, therefore the uninstall option should include the --user switch also e.g.

   flatpak uninstall --user com.xamarin.MonoDevelop

To remove the freedesktop sdk

   flatpak uninstall --user org.freedesktop.Sdk
