Installing Mono Tools in Centos

Mono tools are the collection of libraries and framework , that make the possibility of using .net based applications and gui in linux. They are not available in the standard repositories, so we have to create a repo :

vi /etc/yum.repos.d/mono.repo

[mono]
name = novell-mono
baseurl=http://ftp.novell.com/pub/mono/download-stable/RHEL_5/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

Now Install the required components :

yum -y install mono-addon-core mono-addon-data mono-addon-web mono-addon-core yum -y install mono-addon-devel mono-addon-winforms mono-addon-wcf mono-addon-libgdiplus0 yum -y install mono-addon-data-sqlite mono-addon-extras

Another Method is to use the winetricks:


wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks
chmod +x winetricks
sh winetricks mono26

/opt/novell/bin/mono : is the path to mono.
Installing Dot Net Framework 2.0 :

winetricks dotnet20

Install Core Fonts :

winetricks corefonts
