How do you install and use Monodevelop? (or suggest alternative)

My goal is to use mono develop to write D programs (mono-D IDE).   My setup:

* Arch 3.0
* awesome WM

monodevelop seems to be installed.  But how do I use it?

What's the problem?  Out of curiosity I just installed it, it ran fine here.

Edit: and for the other part of your title - alternative: vim + gcc/dmd wink

How do you invoke it?

# monodevelop

Does nothing.

Re: How do you install and use Monodevelop? (or suggest alternative)

why would you try to launch it as root?  Don't do that.

Just run it normally.

I'm running it on VBox, so not a huge security problem, right? ^-^   I am doing a practice run to see how well I can get along with Arch, and I'll probably install it directly, or make my VBox install official.


*Edit*: Tried 'monodevelop' in normal user acct.  No go.

It's not about security risks, it's about having it work.  Unless you're also running X as root ... Perhaps more information is needed to know what is happening.

-bash: monodevelop: command not found

I'm used to having the commands be found after installing and their names obvious.  I'll do some more googling.

Re: How do you install and use Monodevelop? (or suggest alternative)

It should be.  The installation must have failed.

What does `pacman -Qs monodevelop` return?

That returns nothing (no lines, no output, and does this with no errors).

pacman -S monodevelop

Comes up with conflicts involving libltdl, and won't resolve them on its own.  I'll have to clean & install or re-install some how.

If you want help with THAT problem, please post the error messages/conflicts.  Twenty questions isn't a great forum game.

Yeah, good idea.  I don't clearly recall that it installed successfully, so I'll try fixing the re-install first.

It didn't install.  If pacman finds a conflict it will abort the installation.  The error messages are actually very informative - particularly the one that says no package was installed.
