Any ideas? I'm trying to install mono as per these instructions: http://blog.ruski.co.za/page/Install-Mono-on-Ubuntu.aspx

I need to be able to run the second command apt-get remove mono-common but I'm tripping up at that first hurdle!

Thanks a lot

What's the error message? Also, why not just install an Ubuntu-provided package? Also, those instructions are heavily out-of-date (or rather, the version of Mono they are asking you to install). – Tshepang Feb 17 '11 at 12:50

You're trying to build mono-2.4 yourself? This article seems heavily outdated.

On Ubuntu Maverick (10.10):

sudo apt-get install mono-complete

should get you mono-2.6.7
