How do I build using Mono under the Ubuntu image? (SOLVED)

By default it uses .NET Core - which I think is great - but my project's not yet migrated down that road.

Instead I'd like the Visual Studio 2017 job to build like normal using the full .NET Framework, and the Ubuntu job to build using Mono with msbuild.

For reference, I currently manually build using VS2017 under Win10, and using MonoDevelop 7.3.3 with Mono 5.4.1 on Ubuntu 16.04.

Here's my project:

    For now, "MSBuild" mode for Ubuntu assumes .NET Core solutions/projects.

    However, you can override this default behavior for Ubuntu image as in this article:

    For example:

      project: WHIP_LRU.sln
      parallel: true
      verbosity: minimal
      publish_nuget: false
      publish_nuget_symbols: false
          - image: Ubuntu
      - msbuild WHIP_LRU.sln

    And that worked beautifully! Thank you.
