I cloned the Git repository git://anonscm.debian.org/pkg-cli-apps/packages/monodevelop-database.git and tried to run ./configure but it gives me this error:

configure: error: Package requirements (mono-addins >= 0.4) were not met:

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables MONO_ADDINS_CFLAGS
and MONO_ADDINS_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

I am running MonoDevelop Version 4.0.12 and Mono 3.2.8 (Debian 3.2.8+dfsg-4ubuntu1).
What error is this and what do i do to resolve it?


It seems you don't have the mono-addins package from this line: No package 'mono-addins' found

Install it using this command in the terminal and then try again:

sudo apt-get install mono-addins
