monodevelop packages depend on libcairo2 version 1.12.0 or grater but Ubuntu 12.04 have 1.10.2-6 version (you can see here) so you have to manually download and install from here or here.

  wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/c/cairo/libcairo2_1.14.2-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb
  sudo dpkg -i libcairo2_1.14.2-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb

download version according to your system configuration (64bit or 32bit ) if it still show any dependency then try command:

sudo apt-get install -f
