Subject: mysql connector error


I want to connect a mysql db from mono Project with mysql connector. When i
use Windows and .net framework 4, everthing is ok. But when i use mono, i
have a problem.

When i use this connection string :
Server=;Database=adb;Uid=root;Pwd=apass;Allow Zero
Datetime=true;Character Set=latin5;

Server said that : 
Encoding name 'latin5' not supported Parameter name: name

But problem is not limited about latin5, same issue on utf8, latin1  . 
If i select a wrong  character set, it's working like this :
Server=;Database=ark_ adb;Uid=root;Pwd= apass;Allow Zero
Datetime=true;Character Set=ThereIsAProblem;

I am very confused . Please help .
