Ubuntu 18.04, Cinnamon.
Recently installed Pinta and it has that issue where it just crashes and closes. It's no longer supported unfortunately so searched and came up with a supposed fix. It was mentioned that the fix only worked for 'some' installations. I did not work for mine.
Main part of the fix was to install "mono-devel". That seemed to take quite a while and while I didn't read every installed line as it passed by in Term, seems to have used a bunch of disk space too.
Mono is well over a decade old, but if I do a google search I can't find much information on what it's for. I'm not much interested in cross platforming with Windows since I can just use a VM so I probably won't need it so I was thinking I'll just remove it.
My question is, is there any reason to leave it on the HDD? I do have plenty of HDD space I just don't care for a cluttered drive with unused software just lying around doing nothing.
Should I remove it, or does it do something or support something that's important that I haven't installed yet?
