configure: error: Package requirements (libvala-0.12 >= 0.12.0) were not met:

No package 'libvala-0.12' 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 LIBVALA_CFLAGS
and LIBVALA_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

I'm following this tutorial

But, I have no clue what this means :

>sudo make && make run

What am I supposed to do next?

UPDATE

I installed libvala-0.12-dev, and re-ran ./configure, it worked well, I then did

> sudo make && make run

Since libvala-dev Install libvala-dev is missing, i would start with sudo apt-get install libvala-dev and then re-run ./configure.

If the config scripts runs without problems, you can start building monodevelop using sudo make && make run.

The control operator && in the last line tells that the second command (make run) should get executed only if the first command (sudo make) runs without problems. It's a way to chain multiple commands together while considering that the latter command should run only if the former command finished without errors.

EDIT:

I assume the errors are caused by the MonoMac Extra package that you've selected when running ./configure the first time:

7. [X] extras/MonoDevelop.MonoMac

I'm not sure whether this extra module can be build on a Linux system. If you don't want to create Mac OSX or MeeGo Applications, i would recommend to deactivate those extra packages.

I assume you will have to run ./configure --select instead of simply ./configure to modify your initial selection.

EDIT 2:

Running Monodevelop using make run will work, but the running version isn't "installed" system-wide. This is useful if you want to test different MonoDevelop versions without installing and deinstalling them. If you want to use the compiled version as default version, i think it's recommended to install it first.

To do so, first check the --prefix option of the configure script. It determines the base directory where to install the compiled stuff. Usually it points to /usr/local or something similar, maybe you want to change it to /opt/monodevelop or something like that.

In short:

  1. remove old artifacts from prior builds using sudo make clean ;
  2. re-run configure using ./configure --select --prefix=/opt/monodevelop
  3. Build and install it using sudo make and sudo make install.

If sudo make install was successful, you don't need make run anymore, instead you can run the installed MonoDevelop.

To create a starter or shortcut, you could create a file Monodevelop.desktop and place it into /usr/share/applications or ~/.local/share/application It may have the following content:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=MonoDevelop
GenericName=MonoDevelop IDE
Comment=MonoDevelop IDE
Exec=***path to executable*** - customize
Icon=***path to icon, usually PNG*** - customize
Terminal=false
Type=Application
StartupNotify=false
Categories=Development;IDE

Then, you can drag it to the start menu or onto your desktop.
