An unofficial Gtk# 3.0 build for Ubuntu

Do you know already Banshee, or Pinta, or (of course) Docky. They are all built with two superb technologies - Mono C# and Gtk binding - so called Gtk#.

I know there were so many disputes about Mono and it's future, but I don't care of. C# is an excellent language and thanks to Mono project it is available for Linux too.

The Gtk 3.0 port was being stuck by some bugs (scrollbars disappears) , but until half of year it is hopefully fixed. This bug probably caused Banshee to delay with it Gtk 3.0 version and have no place in official Ubuntu CD. Never mind.

Just for helping the project, and because I like Mono C# and Gtk#, I have published unofficial Gtk# 3.0 build for Ubuntu for testing purposes.

Here is the PPA:

And you can add it to your Ubuntu with these commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ameos/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gtk-sharp3

Enjoy with testing.
