sudo apt-get install monodevelop installs MonoDevelop 2.8.x. The official site, http://monodevelop.com/Download, states that "Packages for MonoDevelop not yet available. The latest available version is MonoDevelop".

I want to use the F# plugin for MonoDevelop which supposedly is only available for MonoDevelop 2.10.x and latter releases.

How do I install MonoDevelop 2.10.x or latter on my Ubuntu? Or is it not possible at all?


You can install MonoDevelop 3.0.x (stable) via this PPA.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:directhex/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install monodevelop

Please note that Monodevelop 3.0 will be included in Quantal 12.10.

Note: If you are unfamiliar with installing third-party software from PPAs, you may want to refer to these questions:
