MonoDevelop Problems

Okay so lately I started using C# in Windows with Visual Studio 2008 and I've been enjoying it so I decided to try Monodevelop on Linux BUUUT, when I compile it I get
checking for MONO_ADDINS... yes
checking for MONO_ADDINS_SETUP... yes
checking for MONO_ADDINS_GUI... yes
checking for GLIB_SHARP... yes
checking for GTK_SHARP... yes
checking for GLADE_SHARP... yes
checking for MONODOC... yes
checking for MONO_CAIRO... yes
checking for GNOME_SHARP... no
checking for GNOME_VFS_SHARP... no
checking for GCONF_SHARP... no
configure: error: Cannot enable GNOME platform without gnome-sharp-2.0
I tried install gnome-sharp but it says I'm missing other files, and than from there it says I'm missing more. Am I going to have to install the entire GNOME package to be able to use this???

Just fyi, I DO have mono installed, even retried it all like here
But it still has the same issue as it had before.

It sounds like your missing a required linux package that mono relies on to make Gnome interface. I am sorry to say I dont know what the required packages are, as I am abit of a lazy linux user, and use the Ubuntu so i dont really have to think when installing new applications.

If your in a rush to get your new application up and running i would suggest quickly downloading SharpDevelop to your windows machine and building your mono application there until you get your linux issues sorted.

Good luck

Of all the applications I have tried to install on slackware MonoDevelop is the only one so far that has beaten me the most in the past.
I had it installed fine before Pat removed gnome from the distro but had several failed attempts to get it installed/working when I upgraded to 12.0. I have had it working by installing the full GSB(Gnome SlackBuild) packages (not ideal since it messes with a few things but it works).
I finally managed to get it to install on 12.2 using packages from i.e just downloading whatever causes the compile to fail, GNOME_SHARP etc in your case. It took a while to manually resolve all the dependencies but I did it and it all works fine for me.
