Hi aikeru,

The Mono Project repositories have up-to-date Mono builds (right now I'm running MonoDevelop 5.5), and adding them are a lot easier than building the whole thing yourself.


If you really do need to build from source, you may want to take a look at:


which details how to set up a complete local (i.e. compiled) environment.

Good luck!

Over the times it has been tricky, especially when the current master
branch required a later version of mono than was available in the latest
Ubuntu release.

Right now it works though, this is how I do it.

1. Install monodevelop from the Ubuntu repo - this will install all the
dependencies you will need.
2. Build monodevelop from source and install into /usr/local

About cleanup, you could possible just remove everything under
/usr/local, it depends whether you have anything else there you need.
