Since the recent release of Ubuntu 14.04 I was surprised to see a new version of MonoDevelop, so I wanted to try creating an ASP.NET MVC 3 (Razor) project but it failed and threw the following exception:
System.IO.FileNotFoundException:Could not find file "/usr/lib/monodevelop/AddIns/MonoDevelop.AspNet.Mvc/Templates/Common/Index.cshtml".File name:'/usr/lib/monodevelop/AddIns/MonoDevelop.AspNet.Mvc/Templates/Common/Index.cshtml'
So while searching on the Internet for hours I found the following solution and hope this will solve your problem too. (more…)

I have decided to write a watcher daemon to watch a specified folder for any newly created files or folders. I did some googling and found that it was very simple to create a daemon program in Linux.
First you will need to create your source file and include the following header file:
In the main function you need to call daemon() like this:
if (daemon(0,0) == -1)
Do something here....
In the while loop you can put your own code to perform a specific task.
To run the daemon when your system boots up edit the file /etc/init.d/rc.local and add the following line at the end of the file:
note: make sure the you copied the file to /usr/sbin or else the file can not be found when the system is booting up.
The daemon function parameters, I have specifice 0 for the first paramter to use the root “/” folder instead of the working folder and the second parameter I have done the same which will redirect all standard input, output and errors to /dev/null.
Detailed information on how to use the daemon function can be found here.
