Ubuntu – How to install MonoDevelop on Ubuntu 17.04


I'm not very experienced at Linux, so I simply want to know: how do I install MonoDevelop on Ubuntu 17.04?

I've tried the instructions on the MonoDevelop website, but I don't think it worked for me. Either that or I just was not able to follow instructions completely or accurately. I tried sudo apt-get install monodevelop, only to have a MonoDevelop with Run->Start Without Debugging and Start Debugging greyed out. Now I presume I will have to uninstall everything and try again? Linux is fun, but…oh Linux. ;)

Then install MonoDevelop with the following command:
