[Mono-dev] Problems with running mono executables as a native app on Ubuntu

Hey all,


in order to overcome the problem I outlined in my previous post I've gone
ahead and compiled the mono packages from source using a script kindly
furnished by Boris Scheiman here,
http://www.bscheiman.org/2009/03/18/compiling-mono-22-on-slicehost/, (the
original script is linked to from this article).


I can now compile thus:


sudo mono /usr/local/lib/mono/1.0/mcs.exe hello.cs


but cannot compile thus:


mcs hello.cs


I understand installing mono-common should configure mono to allow mcs (and
other applications) to run natively, but installing it via aptitude makes no
apparent difference. I feel that until I can get mono apps to run natively
(or, more specifically, understand the issues in doing so), I cannot
progress to running ASP.NET applications. How do I achieve this given that
mono-common seems to fail in it's allotted task?


Apologies for the rather basic question. I've tried to find the combination
of words to extract the solution from the Internet at large but have failed
to do so.


Kind regards,
