A screenshot of the error message.
I've installed Monodevelop on two Fedora 20 x86_64, on both these computers the debugger doesn't work, and I'm unable to run/debug projects. The error is "Could not open port for debugger. Another process may be using the port", I've checked my ports and no process is using this port (10000).
Steps to reproduce:
* Start MonoDevelop
* Open/create any C# application
* Start debugging
It seems that this bug is due to some variable not being present in Gnome any more, I tried Monodevelop on Fedora 20 x86_64 lxce and Gnome and neither debugger worked. It got it working on KDE.
I mean Fedora Xfce
2.8 is a very old version, in more recent versions we use randomly assigned ports so this cannot happen.
What error are you getting with 4.x?
I don't know the error in 4.x because I soon switched to KDE for being able to develop in C# on my Linux. I tried three different versions I think, but all had the same problem. So I switched to KDE and currently I'm using version 5.x. Sorry about the delay on the response.
I guess this means it's fixed?
