Installing missing Certificates

On distributions like Fedora or Mageia, Mono installations come without root certificates installed, and those may not necessarily be synced from the local root certificates as a post installation step either. So on a fresh install, you may need to use the cert-sync tool in order to sync your local root certificates into the Mono truststore

More details in the Mono 3.12 Release Notes

To invoke the tool manually use

sudo cert-sync /path/to/ca-bundle.crt

On Debian systems, that’s

sudo cert-sync /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

and on Red Hat derivatives (Fedora, CentOS, Mageia, etc...) it’s

sudo cert-sync /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt

Your distribution might use a different path, if it’s not derived from one of those.


To compile, just go through the normal autogen/configure stuff and then make install.


To launch F-Spot, run $(prefix)/bin/f-spot.

With MonoDevelop

If you want to use MonoDevelop to build and run F-Spot here are notes about that process.

There are a few steps you have to run before you can open MonoDevelop:

1.  ./ (on ubuntu you have to do ./
2.  cd build; make
3.  cd lib/libfspot; make
4.  sudo make install (this will install the files)


1. ./ prefix={some/path}

I like to do ~/staging

This will build a couple tools in ./build that are needed to build the projects in ./lib.

Once these two directories are built you can now open monodevelop and build and run f-spot from there.
