I just installed Red Carpet, because the mono site


Says it's the preferred way of installing mono.

So, I clicked on the links and installed 3 packages:


rcd is the daemon that lets rug connect to the mono channel.

when I run rug it says:

For a more complete list of commands and important options,
run "rug help".

linux:/usr/bin # rug subscribe mono

ERROR: Unable to connect to the daemon: (2, 'No such file or directory')
ERROR: Please ensure that the service is running.

I think this is because the rcd daemon is not yet started, but when i run
the command:

linux:/usr/bin # service start rcd
-bash: service: command not found

I use the service command to start services in mono.

Also, when I look in the Service Manager Control Center I don't see rcd ( in
fact, there aren't many services there at all ).
