Windows Users

If you are running 64-bit Windows, you'll need to install Cobra targeting the x86 platform. See the addin installation instructions for details.

Mac Users

When running install.cobra, I get this error:

 $ /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Commands/pkg-config --libs monodevelop
 | Package monodevelop was not found in the pkg-config search path.
 | Perhaps you should add the directory containing `monodevelop.pc'
 | to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
 | No package 'monodevelop' found
Compilation failed - 1 error, 0 warnings

I'm guessing that building MonoDevelop on the Mac in question could resolve this, but haven't tested that guess yet:

Ubuntu Users

If you're on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and using MonoDevelop 2.8, you can either update to MonoDevelop 3.0 via this PPA:

Build the latest MonoDevelop from source:

Or you can download a snapshot of the 2.8 addin code:
