I just installed Ubuntu on my local mounted thumb drive. I went to software and installed mono. Then I looked in the application folder and saw two icons for mono, one for a terminal which I did not install. I clicked on the other icon and selected open and nothing happened. I do I access the mono IDE?

    What mono package did you install? There's the mono runtime and the mono IDE.

MonoDevelop is the IDE typically used for Mono development. You can install it with:

sudo apt-get install monodevelop

See: How do I install Monodevelop 2.10 or later on 12.04?


I just ran into this, and I believe the question is specifically: where can the executable be found.

As of Ubuntu 14.04, the executable for MonoDevelop will be found at:
