Hello All,

For a while now I've seen people ask for binary packages of monodevelop and
mono for ubuntu and at last I've been able to finally find time to get some

The packages provide a parallel mono intstallation that won't conflict with the
mono runtime installed by ubuntu. In the repository are everything needed by
monodevelop to load, build and debug a gtk# program on ubuntu 11.10 (oneiric)

Getting started

Add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file

deb http://void.printf.net/~bredroll/pmono ./

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install pmono-monodevelop pmono-scripts

## or just the following for core mono
$ sudo apt-get install pmono-mono pmono-scripts

( you need to install addins before MD, first bug for me to fix )

Once all packages are downloaded and installed you have a full parallel mono
install located in /opt/mono.

Now all you need is to source the following script ( which I'll eventually add
as a package ) before running mono or monodevelop.


$ pmono bash
$ mono --version
$ monodevelop

Included are everything needed to write a gtk# app using monodevelop 2.8.2.

Given time, I'll update to the latest MD and latest mono packages when they
come out.

Anyone curious about how this works can have a look at the scripts here:


Best Regards!
