Description Sharique Ahmed Farooqui 2013-02-22 02:30:43 UTC
Created attachment 3450 [details]

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04, with mono from badgerports repo and pmono. I downloaded MD 4.0 from official download page. 
When opening a project or file, editor does not display any thing, it is just grey page. Refer to screenshot.
Comment 1 Mike Krüger 2013-02-24 02:46:23 UTC
Works for me on my ubuntu 12.10 - but I suppose you'll need a custom mono since the badgerports mono is a bit outdated (I recommend at 2.10.11 - but a 3.x beta runs as well)

Y I know it's hard to get an up2date mono on linux :/
Comment 2 Sharique Ahmed Farooqui 2013-02-24 12:19:42 UTC
I tested with pmono 3.0.1 and issue is same. :(
Comment 3 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-02-25 02:14:21 UTC
Might be the QT GTK theme engine (it's notoriously buggy). Could you try changing the GTK theme?
Comment 4 Mike Krüger 2013-02-25 14:44:41 UTC
I can confirm that we've a problem with the oxygen-gtk engine. 

I've tried the version from the repositories as well as the latest oxygen theme engine - both show the bug. It's a very weird behavior :/
Comment 5 Mike Krüger 2013-02-25 16:26:21 UTC
The bug should be fixed (would be nice if you could get a newer MD4.0 - from git master)
Comment 6 Sharique Ahmed Farooqui 2013-02-28 02:20:39 UTC
I Download MD master zip, but it fails to build due to 

 The specified key file `../../external/nrefactory/ICSharpCode.NRefactory.snk' does not exist

Do I need to download nrefactory separatyly?
Comment 7 Mike Krüger 2013-02-28 02:57:59 UTC
hm, you need to use git:

git clone git://github.com/mono/monodevelop.git

and in the monodevelop directory:
git submodule init
git submodule update --recursive

(the submodule stuff should not be needed - configure/make should do it, but if compilation fails with the git version try it out)
Comment 8 Sharique Ahmed Farooqui 2013-03-11 06:12:52 UTC
It is working now. Thanks. For some themes/styles it is still an issue.
