Last post we installed Mono 2.x run time. Here we will get MonoDevelop install on GNOME, for development environment.

First, here are the related software. You should have most of them when installing the run-time:

yum install glib2-devel pango-devel gtk2-devel glade2-devel libgnome-devel \
gnome-desktop-devel gnome-panel-devel libgnomeprintui22-devel \
gtksourceview-devel ruby ruby-rdoc gtkhtml38-devel wget

Now, we need make the required environment variables while we're building the IDE, as well in its run-time. So let's make it into shellscript called env.sh (or whatever you like it).

echo 'PATH="/opt/mono/bin:$PATH"' /opt/mono/env.sh
echo 'export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/mono/lib/pkgconfig' >> /opt/mono/env.sh
echo 'export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/mono/lib' >> /opt/mono/env.sh
echo 'source /opt/mono/env.sh' >> /opt/mono/env.sh</p>

chmod +x /opt/mono/env.sh
</code>
Now we are ready to build MonoDevelop from tarball source. The following packages are the minimum software needed - we will build them one-by-one:

gtk-sharp

cd ~/
wget http://ftp.novell.com/pub/mono/sources/gtk-sharp212/gtk-sharp-2.12.5.tar.bz2
tar xjf gtk-sharp-2.12.5.tar.bz2
cd ./gtk-sharp-2.12.5
./configure --prefix=/opt/mono
make;make install

Mono.Addins

wget http://ftp.novell.com/pub/mono/sources/mono-addins/mono-addins-0.3.1.tar.bz2
cd ./mono-addins-0.3.1
./configure --prefix=/opt/mono
make;make install

Monodoc

wget http://ftp.novell.com/pub/mono/sources/monodoc/monodoc-2.0.zip
unzip monodoc-2.0.zip
cd ./monodoc-2.0
./configure --prefix=/opt/mono
make;make install

Mono Tools

wget http://ftp.novell.com/pub/mono/sources/mono-tools/mono-tools-2.0.tar.bz2
tar jfxv mono-tools-2.0.tar.bz2
cd ./mono-tools-2.0
./configure --prefix=/opt/mono
make;make install

MonoDevelop

wget http://ftp.novell.com/pub/mono/sources/monodevelop/monodevelop-1.9.1.tar.bz2
tar jfxv monodevelop-1.9.1.tar.bz2
cd ./monodevelop-1.9.1
./configure --prefix=/opt/mono
make;make install

You should now able to start up MonoDevelop in GNOME, enjoy.
