Description rbross1956 2011-09-04 21:35:03 UTC
I have installed Monodevelop on two separate systems, one running Ubuntu 10.04 and the other 11.04.  I have been unable to enabled integrated debugging on either system.  My understanding is that the soft debugger is built in.  But the debugging toolbar remains grayed out.  I then tried both the MDB and GDB debuggers (and checked add-ins to ensure that they were enabled).  The debug tool remains grayed out.

Unfortunately, I cannot find any Monodevelop documentation that tells me what I should expect or how to troubleshoot this issue. There does not seem to be any way to enable this functionality on Ubuntu.

Did you set the active configuration to "x86|Debug"? (replace x86 with whatever arch you are building for)

if it is set to "x86|Release", debugging isn't available.
