does Mono.NET work on KDE?


Hi everyone,

I was searching this morning for an alternative for ms's Visual Studio.NET and I was said that Mono.NET could do the trick.

I downloaded the mono-all.zip package containing the SusE 9.1 rpms from their website, but every file appears like this: name-version.x.x-ximian.rpm. I tried to download Ximian Desktop for my SuSE 9.1 distro but i received an error indicating that the installer couldn't find what distro i had, so i send novell a mail and got my response which said that SuSE 9.1 wasn't supported for Ximian Desktop.

So I wander, could Mono.NET work in KDE or should i perhaps try to download and install GNOME for better results? Sure hope so, hate to see me working in VS.NET again

Gnome OR KDE should work just fine. And even if ur on KDE u can still run programs made for gnome provided u have the right dependencies. Personally i like KDE more cuz of its modern look which is really the only thing that sets it apart from Gnome. A man once said "Looking at Gnome is like stabbing ur eyes w/ pencils", but i have to disagree. Gnome merely mastered a "less is more" look, but both provide very useful programs and u cant go wrong w/ either one. Hope this helps! (U might as well get Gnome and KDE, it wouldn't hurt)

How good is Mono.NET ? Can it run VB.NET and VC.NET code as well ?
In the site only ASP.NET and C# are mentioned. Could not find anything related to VB.NET and VC.NET.
If it does support say VB.NET code - will the same code (project files) run in VS.NET in Windows without any change ?

Mono can run compiled .NET code which was written in any language provided it doesn't reference assemblies which haven't been implemented. At the moment a C# complier ships with mono but this article suggests that v2.0 will support VB.NET code and have better support for windows .NET applications.

Pardon my ignorance, but with Mono can I run an app written specifically for Windows but in the .NET framework? I mean, run it directly in Linux without running it through Wine?

The app in question is called NoteLens www.windsorinterfaces.com.

I'm reluctant even to install Mono on my Slackware 10 system if I'm not reasonably sure I can run this particular app.

Thanks.

The roadmap says that Windows.Forms support will be included with release 1.2 which is due for realease soon. Release 2.0 should have better support for Windows .NET applications. Compatibility with your app will depend on which version of .NET APIs it implements, the only way to know for sure will be to install Mono and fire it up.
In the meantime maybe take a look at some of the alternatives like KnowIt (http://knowit.sourceforge.net/) or Notetool (http://www.freesoftware.fsf.org/notetool/)

Thanks for your helpful reply, liam59. It looks as if things are moving in the right direction.

Thanks, too, for mentioning the two Linux note managers. They look pretty good. What they lack that NoteLens has is the "flatland" approach, by which you never have to categorize or organize your notes. You just use its super-fast search feature to type in keywords. As you add further delimiting keywords, the search engine narrows the find list until you hit the target.

It sounds simple, and it is. But it's very powerful. The people at Windsor Interfaces have several novel approaches to non-hierachical data structures.
