Dear list,

My name is Funs Seelen. I'm a junior software developer from Utrecht (NL,
Europe) and new to this list, to Mono, and also to .NET and C#.

I am trying to set up a simple test project that uses the Naked Objects
Framework, which, I just found out, currently requires to target the .NET
4.5.1 framework.

The following software is currently installed on my machine running Lubuntu
- Mono JIT compiler version 3.2.8
- MonoDevelop v4.0.12

I created an ASP.NET MVC 3 project.

For some reason I can't figure out how to set the .NET target framework, or
even see which framework I'm targeting. Searching for an answer I found out
that this option could be found by right-clicking on the solution, choose
"options", on the "general" tab, nested under "build". However, in contrast
to the screenshot I've seen, the only option I get is to set the output

Then, if I would find a way to choose a .NET target framework, I still
would have to install 4.5.1.

"$ ls /usr/lib/mono/" returns directories 2.0, 3.5, 4.0, and 4.5.

BTW, building an "empty" ASP.NET MVC project throws a
FileNotFOundException, since System.Web.Helpers seems to be missing from my
default installation.

Does anyone know if what I'm trying to achieve is actually possible? If so,
could anyone offer some suggestions? Please tell me if you need more
information in order to help me.

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
