Thank you VERY much.
This issue was really stumping me. :evil:
A great example of one of the problems that comes with linux (which I love)...who should take responsibility for that?
If it is a dependency (which, as you correctly point out, it is...) then shouldn't the installation of MonoDevelop have required it?
Where does the bug get filed? (my ignorance showing) Is it that the debian installation package that Mint is using is incomplete?
Or is something that gets fixed by the MonoDevelop project people?
Who do I report the issue to if I want to help?
