Seems that you are missing the gnome-sharp.dll.config file that MUST be
installed in the same place that gnome-sharp.dll (normally in the GAC,
so you'd have some file like /usr/lib/mono/gac/gnome-

If the config file is lacking the runtime will look for a
libgobject-2.0-0.dll instead of libgobject-2.0-0.so as is needed in

It sure looks like you didn't install GTK# correctly...

HIH, :)
