Thankyou so much.  Using your instructions I have monodevelop
running for the first time after many many many previous failed
installation attempts on both Windows and Linux.

I really appreciate it.

I still have one little glitch.  When I try to view help, I get this:

Unhandled Exception: System.DllNotFoundException: gtkhtml-3.0
in <0x00053> (wrapper managed-to-native) Gtk.HTML:gtk_html_new ()

But don't I already have gtkhtml installed?

[root@localhost monodevelop]# rpm -qa | grep gtkhtml
