I want to install the GitHub app found here. The problem is that according to the README.txt file in the config folder, I need to run

mono MinecraftClient.exe

but that command only returns

Cannot open assembly 'MinecraftClient'.exe' : no such file or directory

I have no idea how to do this since I'm not at all good at programming. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The program is written in C#

I'm using a terminal only version of Ubuntu so there's no desktop.

  • Are you running the command in a directory that contains MinecraftClient.exe? – SurvivalMachine May 31 '18 at 19:01
  • There isn't a MinecraftClient.exe anywhere in the program, so I don't know what the creator meant with that command. As far as I know, I'm supposed to compile(?) the files inside the config folder or run the config folder as an .exe. Not sure though, since again, I have zero programming knowledge – The Colorman May 31 '18 at 19:08

    As stated in the readme, you should download MinecraftClient.exe from: ci.appveyor.com/project/ORelio/minecraft-console-client/build/… – valiano Jun 1 '18 at 9:26

As the readme states, you don't have to build the project from source - just grab the latest development build (MinecraftClient.exe) from:


Here's a summary of required steps on Ubuntu:

  1. Install Mono: sudo apt-get install mono-runtime libmono-reflection-cil
  2. Download MinecraftClient.exe from the above link
  3. Run mono MinecraftClient.exe.
