Thanks David for your input. I've installed the mono-complete awhile ago, so
I went to the ubuntu forums to see what I could do. What I found out was the

Ubuntu version:
Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS

"01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI
RS780M/RS780MN [Mobility Radeon HD 3200 Graphics]"

Once that was determined, what the folks at ubuntu forums stated was:

"AMD/ATI stopped continuing development of the fglrx driver for all HD 4000
models and earlier. Those cards will still work with the legacy driver in
the 12.04 and 12.04.1 repo. However, beginning with 12.04.2, changes in the
kernel and the change from X Server 1.12 to 1.13 mean that the older driver,
no longer updated, will not work. You need an HD 5000 or later series.

There are ways to get those older cards to work, but I recommend against
them so strongly that I will not even bother to point them out. They
effectively break your system using a kludge that is bound to cause problems
with future updates and dependencies. As a matter of fact, I have already
worked with two forum users for whom just that happened."

So unfortunately I may have to find a different path other than mono with
the setup I have...
