View Full Version : [kubuntu] Problem installing MonoDevelop on Ubuntu 9.04

May 15th, 2009, 05:18 PM
I downloaded monodevelop-2.0.tar.bz2 package from here (http://monodevelop.com/Download). The README file says I have to compile it using these commands:
1. ./configure --prefix=`pkg-config --variable=prefix mono`
2. make
3. make install

This is the ouput of the first command:

jaka@LaptopJaka:~/Desktop/MonoDevelop/monodevelop-2.0$ ./configure --prefix=`pkg-config --variable=prefix mono`

checking for MONODOC... configure: error: Package requirements (monodoc >= 1.0) were not met:

No package 'monodoc' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables MONODOC_CFLAGS
and MONODOC_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.


When I type 'make' it just says:

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

So... what am I doing wrong? By the way I'm using Kubuntu.

I'll ask: why are you building from source when it's in the archive?

OK, I get it but I don't know, how to use that build... Finally I got an idea of installing using the apt-get command.. It's installed and works now - I can't belive this! :)

We should move this thread to trash - it was a stupid problem! :D
