GraphicsModeException when creating GLControl

When I attempt to create the GLControl I get the following exception:

OpenTK.Graphics.GraphicsModeException: Invalid or unsupported GraphicsMode.
  at OpenTK.X11GLControl..ctor (OpenTK.Graphics.GraphicsMode mode, System.Windows.Forms.Control control) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0

The line causing it is "cglGLView = new GLControl();" in the constructor for my windows forms class.

public GLForm() {
			//Initialize Log label
			clblLog = new Label();
			clblLog.Top = 485;
			clblLog.Left = 0;
			clblLog.Width = 800;
			clblLog.Height = 125;
			clblLog.Text = "";
			cbGLReady = false;
			cglGLView = new GLControl();
			//Position and configure the controls
			cglGLView.Top = 0;
			cglGLView.Left = 0;
			cglGLView.Width = 640;
			cglGLView.Height = 480;
			//Define callbacks for the controls
			cglGLView.Load += new EventHandler(GLViewLoading);  
			cglGLView.Paint += new PaintEventHandler(GLViewPainting); 
			//Position and configure the form
			this.Width = 775;
			this.Height = 670;
			this.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.FixedSingle;

I'm running Ubuntu 13.10, with Mono 2.10. The graphics card is a NVidia Quadro FX 370M, however I'm using the Nouveau driver. I do have Mesa 9 installed which I thought would be enough to let this run.

Is there some other package I'm missing to get this running, or will I need to switch to the NVidia drivers for my card to get any sort of OpenGL to work?

Thanks for any help.

Glad it helped. I honestly expected to hear I was missing some dependency somewhere that was causing it. Thank you very much for looking into and fixing this!

I don't typically use monodevelop, but if it's got a solid debugger I'll have to get it installed and take another look at it.
