According to this document:


the gui.glade is the name of the resource which is embedded in your
executable. I think it doesn't accept a full path name.

In your first attempt you may only need to check if MonoDevelop is
passing the -resource switch when compiling your project.

>From above documentation:

mcs -pkg:glade-sharp-2.0 -resource:gui.glade glade.cs

I hope it helps.
