Hey guys, I very much appriciate this post, I was about to throw
webkit_sharp out the window (seriously) then I came upon this post and was
able to fix it. Had installed MonoDevelop on Ubuntu Studio 13.04
amd64, I then downloaded the webkit_sharp from Git, it built fine, the
assemblies were there, the compile went ok, but like the above, i got the
nasty Missing Dll Exception when running the application, plus wasnt sure
just what and where I was supposed to add the WebView class to also.
Following suit, I found that in the ./sources/webkit-sharp.dll.config and
the webkit-sharp.dll.config.in the libraries were called "webkit-1.0.so.2"
which was way off for me, mine were called "webkitgtk-1.0.so.0", so I had to
make the appropriate changes.. possible it would have been better to do this
in the configure.in, but i hate dealing with it so I just ran 'make clean'
and then 'make' again in that directory, copied the webkit-sharp.dll over
the faulty ones in my system, and BAM!! everything works! Words cannot tell
how much I appreciate this post. I'll see about writing a suitable tutorial
for Ubuntu users once I figure out what went wrong and verify that it
happens on other machines of the same OS type, with different
configurations. so again, thanks. Btw, the link to my blog where I post
tutorials is :
