Installing Mono 2.10.x on Ubuntu 10.4LTS

By August 31, 2011Tech

Following on from my Centos updates, I’ve got to update my Ubuntu 10.4 boxes.¬† Given ubuntu say this is bad and will break all sorts of things, I’m installing alongside the current supplied 2.4.4.


export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/mono-2.10/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH

export PATH=/opt/mono-2.10/bin:$PATH

export PATH=/opt/mono-2.10/lib:$PATH

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/mono-2.10/lib

get the source


bunzip2 *.bz2

tar -xvf mono-2.10.5.tar

tar -xvf mono-basic-2.10.tar

cd mono-2.10.5

apt-get install bison gettext

./configure –prefix=/opt/mono-2.10

make  (then go have a cup of tea Рthis will take a while)

make install

cd ..

cd mono-basic-2.10

./configure –prefix=/opt/mono-2.10


make install



/opt/mono-2.10/bin/mono –version

should give you version number etc.
