We don't specifically support Monodevelop in Linux and have no knowledge of it, but maybe there are other community forum members who can help you.

The loopback example was written and built using Microsoft Visual Studio.
I would recommend testing this out on a Windows PC.
In addition, the FTD2XX_NET.DLL is provided for the Windows platform:


Source code for the wrapper is provided so you could develop your own C# wrapper which will work on Monodevelop in Linux.
