Well, started all over again and wiped the PI clean with a fresh start.

Last time I had done an intricate thing to update monodevelop to the latest
version (5.9.x)

First add the Mono Project GPG signing key by typing in the (remote or
local) command prompt
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys

Then type
echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian wheezy main" | sudo
tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-xamarin.list
for the first repository. Now enter
echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian
wheezy-apache24-compat main" | sudo tee -a
for the second repository. 

Once added, we need to execute the sudo apt-get update command again (like
we did in Step 4). We are finally ready to install Mono: enter
sudo apt-get install mono-complete (Takes a very long time)
sudo apt-get install monodevelop
sudo apt-get install gtk-sharp2 (TRY NOT INSTALLNG THIS ONE YET)
sudo apt-get install xterm (Very short install)

This time I left out that intricate step and just did a:

sudo apt-get install mono-complete (Takes a very long time)
sudo apt-get install monodevelop
sudo apt-get install xterm (Very short install)

... This time the interface was a bit different on Stetic and when I did an
About it was version A far cry from the complete update to the
newest version.

I repeated my steps, Creating a VBox, then creating an HBox in the first
VBox... then adding a button to the first HBox, then adding a png image to
the project with an Add Files, setting Build Action on the image to
EmbeddedResource, then adding a Stock Item, choosing the image I just added
from Resources. 

Then chose the button, clicked 'Properties', Under Button Type I chose
'Stock Button', under Stock Item I chose the Stock Icon I just added. 

In the button, still it just says key0, which is the name I gave the icon.
It didn't show the picture.

Surprise, surprise...

So, proof that it wasn't something I had done when I had updated it to the
latest version of monodevelop. Does exactly the same thing with monodevelop as it did with the latest version 5.x.x


I also left a bug report on GitHub, and pointed them to this page. My main
question was, "Is there a manual for Stetic in PDF format, or otherwise?"
and my secondary question was about how you create a Stock Icon of  your own
to put on a button, indicating what I had already tried.

Lets see if that helps us find out what they were intending
