Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 460765
MonoDevelop Project->Options not available
Last modified: 2008-09-25 16:47:14 EDT
Description of problem:
In MonoDevelop v.0.19 - installed using yum - running on a fully updated F9 system. Either when creating a new C# project, or opening an existing one, the menu option Project -> Options is greyed out and unavailable. As this is where the option to select Mono framework v.1.0 or 2.0 resides it makes compiling any project which requires Mono 2.0 impossible.
Also at startup there is an empty error dialogue box stating that add-in could not be loaded (but that is, I think, the subject of another bug).
Also the GUI builder - Stetic - does not seem to work, but I have not investigated this fully.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install MonoDevelop and all its dependencies using yum
2. Create a new project (or load an existing one).
3. Try to select the project options screen (Menu : Project -> Options) It is not availble (greyed out).
Should be able to change project options (such as which version of the framework to compile against).
Okay, you first need to use mono-addins 0.3.1 - this will fix quite a lot of the problems. I'll need to check on a few things before I get it into F9 though.
Can you try the versions in rawhide? It's a damned sight nicer and may be a short term fix.
Thanks for the speedy response.
Enabling Rawhide repo to update monodevelop and mono-addins wants to update 122 packages (including stuff like kdevelop, Amarok and OpenOffice!) and install a further 23 for dependencies (371Mb in total).
Is it likely to break anything if I do so? I am willing to do this if you can reassure me at least a little bit. I know you can't make promises, but is the stuff in Rawhide largely stable, and does it play nicely with the rest of F9?
Thanks for your help.
Not a problem!
yum update mono mono-addins causes you to need 122 updates? Wow!
It's not likely to break anything to be honest. But I'll do a push tonight/tomorrow and get monodevelop and mono-addins et al into F9, so no need to worry!
I, for one, appreciate your hard work. Many thanks!
New mono-addins is in f9-update-candidates now. MD will be in as soon as mono-tools and gnome-desktop-sharp is in f9.
Just a question...
There was today (Thur 25 September) a clutch of updates hitting the repos but, as yet, mono-addins (or monodevelop) does not seem to be amongst them.
Roughly how long between you pushing a fix into f9-update-candidates and it appearing in F9 updates for we mortals?
Are you using the updates-testing.newkey repo or the old updates-testing?
Oooops... Thwack. (Sound of hand smacking forehead sharply). I just didn't think about the "newkey" thing. Sorry.
I now have mono-addins.i386 0:0.3.1-2.2.fc9. I haven't had time to try it out yet
but from a quick look it certainly seems to have fixed the "options" problem and the startup error problem.
Thanks for your help. It's greatly appreciated.
