Hi all,

I've just installed Mono version from binary installer package 
on Debian Testing, x86, into directory /usr/local/mono- When I 
try to run MonoDevelop, I get following error:

Unhandled Exception: System.TypeInitializationException: An exception 
was thrown by the type initializer for Gnome.ModuleInfo ---> 
in (wrapper managed-to-native) 
Gnome.ModuleInfo:gnomesharp_gnome_moduleinfo_get_name_offset ()
in <0x00008> Gnome.ModuleInfo:.cctor ()--- End of inner exception stack 
trace ---

in <0x00000> <unknown method>
in <0x00025> Gnome.Modules:get_UI ()
in <0x0042a> MonoDevelop.SharpDevelopMain:Main (System.String[] args)

The library libgnomesharpglue-2.so is correctly installed in 
/usr/local/mono- LD_LIBRARY_PATH includes the mono library 
directory. I have tried to add line

<dllmap dll="gnomesharpglue-2" target="libgnomesharpglue-2.so"/>

into /usr/local/lib/monodevelop/bin/MonoDevelop.Base.dll.config as well 
as into /etc/mono/config, but the error did not change.
MonoDoc can be started without trouble.
There are no debian mono packages installed in the system.
Does anyone know what's wrong?

thanks in advance, Zbynek
