[MonoDevelop] Trouble importing Visual Studio SLN

I'm now clear on the differences.  Since I don't have a Windows environment
or Visual Studio, my approach is to create a new "web application" project,
find and add each of the existing files, and then add the project
references.  This seems to be working, but I can't find all of the needed

I need Oracle.DataAccess.  BTW, I'm developing on Ubuntu and I've already
installed via apt and added references for these:

libmono-oracle1.0-cil - Mono Oracle library (for CLI 1.0)
libmono-oracle2.0-cil - Mono Oracle library (for CLI 2.0)

I've googled for this and it's unclear to me whether or not I'll be able to
download a driver from Oracle that will work under mono on Linux.  Some
people suggest using a 3rd party driver.  What is the recommendation?  I
need to not touch the code for the sake of the Windows developers, so I need
a solution that includes the assembly by the name Oracle.DataAccess.
