Steps toward running a Mono app on the OLPC XO

Author cambell | 11.12.2007 | Category WeSay

I created a sd card image to boot the XO separately for our Mono environment.

  • Image the sd card using a developer image as documented here
  • Change all instances of ‘disk:\’ to ’sd:\’ in /boot/olpc.fth
  • add mono.repo to /etc/yum.repos.d as documented here and here
  • yum install mono-winforms

To launch a mono application, run: DISPLAY=:0.0 mono AppName.exe at the developer console. (Alt = will bring up the developer console.)

We did find that the 200 dpi was not getting picked up by mono. In order to get that working, run echo "Xft.dpi:200" | xrdb -merge at the developer console.
