I think this is more or less a dup of the "Why can't my compiler find
Gtk# classes?" faq.

I'm tempted to stay away from more general .Net on linux questions like
this, or we'll end up with a FAQ as long as the MS docs.  :)  I haven't
really heard this question coming up related to Gtk#. Was this something
you struggled with in getting up and running?  Perhaps this might be
confusing from the perspective of someone coming to linux from a Windows
.Net background that's used to just typing 'program', or clicking an
icon. I'm hoping the mono/p.net projects will be fielding most of these
types of FAQs for us, but if others think this was challenging to
overcome I can certainly add it to the faq. :)
