I'm on ubuntu 12.04. I installed mono develop from software settings, but quickly realized that it was not the version on the monodevelop,com website. So I uninstalled that and I've installed mono runtime 2.11.3 using this method:
That worked ok, and I am able to compile and run c# programs using gedit and command line.
HOWEVER - I am not able to install monodevelop from the git clone -
