[Mono-dev] MonoDevelop failure

Here's a followup:

When I remove the config directory, I get some messages about a problem
with gtk-sharp:

Assembly not found: gtk-sharp, Version=, Culture=neutral,
WARNING: [MonoDevelop.Components,1.0.0] Could not load some add-in
assemblies: Could not load file or assembly 'gtk-sharp,
Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=35e10195dab3c99f' or
one of its dependencies.

So, obviously, I check for gtk-sharp on my system:


I'm not real sure about the details, but should there be a
.../policy.2.12.gtk-sharp/... in that list?

When I look in Synaptic, it says I have gtk-sharp-2.12 installed, but
all the description text still says gtk-2.10.

To my untrained eye it appears as if I *do* have gtk-sharp-2.12
installed but it's not being found.

Any further hints/tips/RTFMs for me?
