Ubuntu doesnt support c# because it MS product and i too user/programmer in c# , in
windows u have visual studio as same is "MONO developer" something that is IDE for
compiling c# code,also note that in next version of ubuntu will have its own IDE called ANJUTA which can compile c,c++ easily using gui.

Hello Juice:

You can use monodevelop IDE to create and compile C# programs in ubuntu

To install monodevelop in ubuntu:

Firstly you want to enable extra repositories on your system Please refer this link for the same


After getting all the repositories enabled type the following command in a terminal (applications -> accessories -> terminal)

sudo aptitude install mono mono-gmcs mono-utils monodevelop monodoc mono-xsp monodoc-http monodoc-ipod-manual monodoc-njb-manual monodoc-nunit-manual monodoc-gtk2.0-manual monodoc-gecko2.0-manual monodoc-ipod-manual monodoc-njb-manual monodoc-nunit-manual monodoc-gecko2.0-manual mono-xsp2 monodevelop-java libnunit-doc monodevelop-nunit monodevelop-versioncontrol monodevelop-query
