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 – this 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.
