I just installed MonoDevelop so that I could develop .net apps on by Ubuntu partition.

Nothing will compile because of the following error:

Error: Visual Basic .NET compiler not found (Mono 2.6.7) (First MonoNet App)

I did a quick Google search and found nothing on how to fix the problem? Where do I get a Mono .NET Compiler...?

Type sudo apt-get install monodevelop mono-vbnc from the Terminal prompt to install the compiler

Note that this only applies to systems using the Debian package manager. That includes Debian and Ubuntu, amongst others. Otherwise, you'll need to find out how to install packages on your system. – Bob Apr 3 '13 at 6:15
