[Mono-list] Dream of Mono, GTK#, and XSP Beta 2 Windows Installer
Fri, 4 Jun 2004 20:57:31 -0400
I would like to have a Windows Installer for Mono Beta 2 that includes
- Mono Beta 2
- Static HTML docs
Gonzalo has provided us with a Windows Installer for Mono Beta 2. See
the Mono download page.
John Luke is working on a GTK# Windows Installer that will work on .NET
then he will create a GTK# installer
that will work on Mono. Jluke, can we get a sneak preview please?
Joshua has created static HTML pages for Mono and GTK# at
The docs are in .tar.gz format, so you may need cygwin to un-tar-gzip
These docs were created from a tool he created. He has since added this
tool to monodoc.
Now, if we can get get XSP to work on Windows. I know it builds on
Windows, but I am unable to get pages. This could be my
misunderstanding of how to get it to work.
While I'm dreaming, let me dream BIG:
- bundle with SharpDevelop
- include GTK# apps that work on Windows and Linux, such as, SQL# For
Please let me know if you know of other GTK#/Mono apps that work on
Linux and Windows.
- get mod_mono to work with Apache on Windows
Two things I think Mono needs on Windows:
- a printing engine that works on Windows and Linux. Not sure how this
could be acomplished.
- an imaging API that works on Windows and Linux. On Windows, use TWAIN
underneath, on Linux, use SANE underneath
Anyways, these are my dreams. Anyone care to help make it a reality?
