Well, I believe I can spot a two things wrong.

The first thing is that the hash as indicated here:

 "sled-marian:~/mono >>> # <<< mcs "

suggests you are running commands as the root user. This is not
necessary and should be avoided. Please run as a normal user!

The main problem as indicated by the errors you included should show you
that the compiler cannot find the assemblies which contain the
'System.Web.Services' namespace.

Essentially, you need to tell the compiler to reference them (on one

[user] $  mcs /target:library -r:System.Web,System.Web.Services

This should seem to do nothing (eg no errors), but you will find it
compiled a "GoogleSearchService.dll" in that directory, which you can
then reference in your projects.

I am guessing that you are trying to follow this:

Yes, I believe that it is wrong at that point, and yes it could do with
updating, but the rest of the tutorial is stable.

Anyone with a wiki account fancy making the edits?

Also, might I recommend playing with the Amazon Web services? Similar
simple technique to use, but there are more interesting possibilities.

Miguel has posted an excellent step-by-step guide here:

Good luck.

still learning too!
