This did it.  Thanks.

  I don't have permission to access monodevelop files

Status in “monodevelop” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm on 11.10 Oneiric.

  When I open an existing solution I get:
  ERROR [2011-11-04 11:05:28Z]: Can't create syntax mode directory
  System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path "/usr/lib/monodevelop/bin/../data/HighlightingSchemes" is denied.

    at MonoDevelop.SourceEditor.SourceEditorDisplayBinding.LoadCustomStylesAndModes () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
  The project does open.

  But whe I try to compile I get:
  ERROR [2011-11-04 11:15:01Z]: C# compiler not found for Mono / .NET 3.5.
  ERROR [2011-11-04 11:15:01Z]: System.Exception: C# compiler not found for Mono / .NET 3.5.

  I can't build anything.  It seems more like a packaging problem.  I'm
  going to try to blow open the permissions so I can get work done.
