> How I get root rights for running, debuging, parsing etc. applications in Monodevelop? Another but an uncomfortable way is to start the console as superuser (su) and start the application with mono xy.exe. But this way does not allow to debug any application.

You can use the "remote debugging" to debug an process running as root
with an MD instance running in normal user context.

The remote-debugger is operating on an TPC-Socket - it is possible but
not required to use in on different machines.
