Rider on Ubuntu Shows Mono Not Installed


Hey guys, I am wanting to test Rider for the Xamarin ability, but I have installed on Ubuntu 18.10 and installed mono but when I launch Rider and select New Solution and Xamarin solution I get a message saying that Mono is not found.  If I click the link to install mono, I have already followed the guide multiple times and run all of the below commands

sudo apt install mono-devel
sudo apt install mono-complete
sudo apt install mono-dbg
sudo apt install referenceassemblies-pcl
sudo apt install ca-certificates-mono
sudo apt install mono-xsp4

Is rider not compatible with Ubuntu 18.10 or am I missing something here?


And this is my output from mono --version

mono --version

@Sofia Byzova -> following those instructions when I launch Ryder it shows Registered To Trial User, Expiration December 9th 2018


Then when I click on New Project I only have the option to create Empty Solution or More Templates.  I do not even have the Xamarin option anymore in the project window?



Could you please collect RIder logs and share them with us?


Thanks in advance!
