mono-complete depends on msbuild, while mono-devel only recommends it. It sounds like @robbyxp1 said yes to the recommends, while @combivanCoder said no.

I just built and ran EDD from source on Debian 10, with the instructions given in the wiki.

Mono JIT compiler version (tarball Mon Feb 22 17:42:49 UTC 2021)

the CAPI needs to be disabled in the mono build I agree.

Is that from a fresh install? See

To clarify: I did not use dotnet, I simply followed the Linux instructions on your wiki (which focused on mono-complete). I was only noting the fact that I’m more familar with .NET than Mono.

The error posted was from the command instructed on your wiki.

Can you confirm that additional steps are needed beyond your wiki please?

If msbuild is not installed, then you will need apt install msbuild
