Daily Snippet

Install MonoDevelop 5.1 on fresh Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64bit

I use davidloo tutorial and I wanna add some point from my experience.

1. sudo apt-get install git automake gnome-sharp2 mono-xsp4

2. git clone https://github.com/mono/monodevelop.git

3. cd monodevelop

4. ./configure –profile=stable

At this point I have error “No package ‘glade-sharp-2.0’ found.” and with ‘monodoc’ package.

The solution is to install that packages from synaptic. 

apt-get install synaptic

Check this on synaptic and click Apply :




And run configure again.

4. ./configure –profile=stable

5. sudo make install

And now you have MonoDevelop 5.1 and .net 4.5.

  2. Awesome, your guide really works.
    Just a detail with this line ./configure –profile=stable the “–” is actually a “- -” (double dash, 2 dashes in a row) I think wordpress by some reason shows one dash instead of 2 dashes.

    Thanks for your post, it really helped me.

    During my installation I found problem with missing “referenceassemblies-pcl” package (error during “make”). Installing it using apt-get fixed the problem.

    Not for me:
