Webkit based WebBrowser written in #Mono (C#) + #Firebird Step 1

I will start with this simple example

Install monodevelop and the mono.webkit (aka webkit-sharp)

sudo apt-get install gtk-sharp2 libwebkit1.1-cil monodevelop

start monodevelop new gtk c# project (copy paste the code from above to match your app main class and namespace my are: coolbrowser,monobrowser)

But i didn't found in the list of installed assemblies
so i use my rusty admin skills and install from git and from webkit-sharp source

git clone

it didn't found the webkit dev libs and the mcs so

sudo apt-get install libwebkit-cil-dev libwebkit-dev
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/gmcs /usr/bin/mcs

./ --prefix=/usr
sudo make install

add webkit references to the project

here is the code

I have added the default size to be 800x600

Hi, I've been trying to follow your instructions and got a error while trying to build webkit-sharp:

error CS2001: Source file `generated/*.cs' could not be found

I have no idea how to fix it, can you please share a webkit-sharp.dll file somehow? Thanks.
