In a previous post I outlined how to install MonoDevelop, however since then work has been very busy and I have not had a chance to play around with the installation. Today I attempted this and found I left out some fairly major components in the configuration of MonoDevelop. The missing items are as follows:
Mono is an open source cross platform implementation of the C# CLR that is compatible with Microsoft.Net. This article will explain how to implement a Mono Development Environment on Linux Mint 12 (This will work with most Debian derivative Linux distros)
The following how-to will outline the steps required to install the Android development environment on the Linux Mint 12 (Lisa) distro. This will consist of the java JDK, Eclipse and the Android SDK.
When you install Linux Mint and install the Mtrack Multitouch drivers, as explained here. Or through the script explained in my other blog post, found here. You will have the system mouse scroll setup in the same manner as Mac OSX Lion, which is the opposite to what everyone has been using until now.
After recently purchasing a MacBook Air 4.2 (2011 model) I decided it would be great to triple boot with MacOS, Windows 7 and a linux distro. After some googling I found this great article on lifehacker. This how-to follows this guide, but has been modified slightly for my installation.
Linux Mint 12 (Lisa) is based on Ubuntu 11.10 so the script created by Joshua Dillon that is referenced on the Ubuntu MacBook Air site would in theory work, however as I found I needed to do a little tweaking to get this to occur. Below are the steps that enabled me to run Mint 12 on my MacBook Air.
