Troubleshooting: Fixing Mono Compiler Issue

I tried to open Gnome-RDP in Monodevelop, and this is the error that I get:

Could not obtain a C# compiler.  C# compiler not found for Mono / .NET 3.5.

Could not obtain a c# compiler.  C# compiler not found for Mono / .NET 3.5.

The fix is to simply change the compiler target on the project’s properties.  Right click on the project and choose “Options”.

MonoDevelop - Project Options Menu

Then, change the runtime version.

Project Options, Runtime Version

Changing it to 4.0 fixes the project.

4.0 Version

You may need to accept a message like this:

Select File Format
