    When I go to Preferences -> External Tools and click "Download MonoDevelop Installer" it loads the url http://download.unity3d.com/download_unity/3c89f8d277f5/Unknown/Unsupported in my browser, but that url does not exist.

    Apart from the url not working I think that it would be easier and more intuitive if the MonoDevelop download were included as an optional component in the new installer just like the documentation, standard assets and the others.

    Thank you and keep up the good work with Unity Linux :)

    Hi buddy! i think you should download monodevelop at native way and choose it from Editor options ,i suggest you download visual studio code, is more efficent and have some interesting addons.

    Wulfara: I'm seeing the same thing w/Unity-2017.3.0f1 on Debian Linux 8.9 (Jessie). Depending on the Linux distribution you are using, support for monodevelop may already be available. For example, Debian Linux 8.9 (Jessie) supports the monodevelop package version 4.0.12 released in 2013, which is older than the latest stable release 6.1 SR1 (6.1.2.44) and can be installed w/dependencies by executing the following as root:

    apt-get install monodevelop

    After installation, launch Unity and set your preferences as follows:

    Edit | Preferences | External Tools | External Script Editor: Browse...
    navigate to /usr/bin/monodevelop
    select [x] to close Unity Preferences

    ...then double-left-click any of your project's C# scripts and the MonoDevelop IDE will launch. In the Solution navigator, expand the project tree and double-left-click on the .cs file to bring it up in the editor.

    An alternative is to use Emacs IDE, setting your preferences as follows:

    Edit | Preferences | External Tools | External Script Editor: Browse...
    navigate to /usr/bin/emacs
    select [x] to close Unity Preferences
