I'd like to be able to build and run C# programs on my Ubuntu 10.10 server. How do I install Mono? "sudo apt-get install mono" doesn't work, says "Package mono is not available, but is referred to by another package".


Try this

sudo apt-get install mono-complete

    What version does this install? Latest stable? – jjxtra Apr 4 '13 at 22:39
  • Does the "mono-complete" installs X11 with it !? Imo, I don't think this is the best choice on a server... – Victoralm Oct 29 '16 at 4:40

You can install only mono runtime. Try this:

sudo apt-get install mono-runtime

The mono compiler package is mono-gmcs, if you need the entire mono stack, install the package mono-complete .

    What's the difference between the complete mono stack and the compiler package? – starbeamrainbowlabs Sep 14 '15 at 17:26
