Thanks for confirming what I thought. I need .NET 3.x installed, how do I do
that? and how would I uninstall my current stuff?

So the MonoDevelop that you downloaded needs Mono 2.10.1 or greater.
So, the Mono you installed must be less that that.

Can you not install MonoDevelop through apt-get too? That should be a
compatible version.

If not, you need to find a MonoDevelop for your Mono version, or install a
Mono version that is 2.10.1 or greater.

Hope that helps!
