I tried installing Ironpython on ubuntu 12.04 using the guide here: IronPython on Mono But it doesn't seem to work. I have no Solutions/IronPython.Mono.sln, so i try to xbuild Solutions/IronPython.sln but it doesn't work because of some errors.

Can someone please point to another way of installing IronPython on Ubuntu?

@aburnap link only answers are not welcome in this site - could you post a summary of the steps here? – muru Apr 1 at 3:00
The instructions are broken for me at the xbuild Solutions/IronPython.sln /p:Configuration=Release step, on Ubuntu 14.04. I get 25 warnings and 2 errors. The 2 errors are socket.cs(1900,63): error CS0117: 'System.Net.Sockets.SocketOptionName' does not contain a definition for 'IPv6Only' and c#sqlite/pcache1_c.cs(744,25): error CS0165: Use of unassigned local variable 'pGroup'. – CivMeierFan Jul 16 at 19:34

Use the command sudo apt-get install python-all

Heres a link to some useful information on python.

I did install this package but it dosen't install IronPython, it says: "dependencies on ironpython may be added." – Mike Spadd Aug 8 '12 at 3:11

Try using the Ubuntu Software Center to install, or by clicking below.

It's not available in Ubuntu 12.04 software center :( I get the message: "There isn’t a software package called “ironpython” in your current software sources." – Mike Spadd Aug 8 '12 at 4:53
@MikeSpadd make sure yuo enable the universe, multiverse, and partner repositories first, that'll be vial to checking whether it exists in the repos – Thomas W. Aug 8 '12 at 12:56
@Lord of Time - I have them already enabled. But there's no IronPython :( – Mike Spadd Aug 10 '12 at 3:24
