Try to check dir premissions , by default /user/share does not have
write premissions for group.

Subject: [Mono-winforms-list] CommonApplicationData directory on linux
hi all,

i'am working on application that stores some data in 
Environment.SpecialFolder.CommonApplicationData everything works on 
windows. On linux application crashs because of CommonApplicationData 
points to /usr/share and my application can't write data in there.

Is there some "Porting" guidelines about directories? Data I want to 
store should be used by all users - so store it in user dir is not the 
best way for me.

  Thanks a lot for any suggestions
