Comment 1 Jeffrey Stedfast 2015-05-27 12:42:51 UTC
Upgrade to MonoDevelop 5.9
Comment 2 Roman 2015-05-27 13:49:23 UTC
How to do it?
Comment 3 Jeffrey Stedfast 2015-05-27 14:38:58 UTC
I don't know, consult your Linux vendor.
Comment 4 Roman 2015-05-27 15:33:37 UTC
I guess that new version of monodevelop for my ubuntu x64 does not exist, because I had meet with upgrade monodevelop but that time I used lubuntu x86 OS
Comment 5 Roman 2015-05-28 03:35:08 UTC
Ha ha! I have upgrade monodevelop to 5.9 version but problem not resolved.
Comment 6 Roman 2015-06-16 02:29:16 UTC
So, I understand that problem is unresolved... Bad
Comment 7 David Karlaš 2015-06-18 01:41:20 UTC
If you run this normally(outside MonoDevelop)... Application doesn't crash?

Btw this exception doesn't make much sense because whole method CheckLinuxCapabilities is under try-catch :S
Comment 8 Roman 2015-06-18 03:16:26 UTC
I run application from terminal emulator without problem, moreover mono --debug=mdb-optimizations also works without problem
Comment 9 Roman 2015-06-18 03:24:42 UTC
I will remove ubuntu and install mint and all will be ok. Do you argee?
Comment 10 Roman 2015-08-03 02:52:31 UTC
I have installed mint rebeca and all works perfect on 5.9.4 version of monodevelop
Comment 11 David Karlaš 2015-08-03 03:09:57 UTC
Based on previous comment, I assume this is fixed, hence closing as fixed. Reopen if this appears again.(probably problem was outdated mono(not monodevelop) on ubuntu based on Comment 7)
