[Mono-list] newbie: "using System.Data.MySql" fails

I am writing my first Mono console application that connects to MySQL
database. I have installed MySQL 5.0, I installed MySQL Connector .NET
driver and I copied it to GAC with a command: sudo gacutil -i
MySql.Data.dll. I have created new C# project (TestMono) in MonoDevelop with
such code:

using System;
using System.Data.MySql;
namespace TestMono
    class MainClass
        public static void Main(string[] args)

The problem is that I receive a compile error:

[Task:File=/home/robert/Projects/TestMono/TestMono/Main.cs, Line=2,
Column=1, Type=Error, Description=The type or namespace name
`System.Data.MySql' could not be found. Are you missing a using directive or
an assembly reference?(CS0246)

I also tried to add reference to copy of MySql.Data.dll but I got the same
message. However, I would prefer to have my driver in GAC.

Could anyone help me please to solve the problem?
