MonoDevelop won't start as regular user

I'm using Debian and Monodevelop 0.5.1-2

As root, MonoDevelop runs fine. When I try to use it as a regular user, though, it shows the splash screen and exits. Here's the command line output:

morgan@morgan-debian:~/.config$ sudo monodevelop
Creating DefaultWorkbench

As you can see, it runs fine as root but not as me. This output was made after I moved the ~/.config/MonoDevelop directory to a new location.

Does anyone have any ideas on fixing this?

Similar problem. Although I run as root all the time and even then, sometimes I get a similar page of garbage. Eventually it runs. If you leave it a while, it may come good. If anyone knows why this happens let us know. I'm on v1.1.7

Solved my problem. My mono version is the latest 1.1.7 and the monodevelop is latest 0.7. I went to and downloaded the 0.6 source. I removed the old mono develop package with rpm -e monodevelop and then compiled and installed the 0.6 source with:


. Seems to be running nicely and loading previous projects.

By the way, I'm running FC3. Hope this helps you out.
