First, try MoMA (works on Windows) on your app: http://mono-project.com/MoMA
That'll give you an idea about whether your app will work with Mono or not.

Then, install Mono on Ubuntu if it's not already there (using synaptic or
apt-get for example, Google for help). Last time I tried Mono on Ubuntu, the
Mono core was installed out of the box, but some components such as WinForms
had to be installed separately.
Keep in mind Ubuntu 9.04 ships with Mono 2.0, while the latest stable
version of Mono is 2.4. So you might want to install 2.4, there are articles
on the net that'll tell you what to do...

Once you have Mono, you can right click your exe, and choose to run it with
Mono (Mono will probably not be proposed at first, you'll have to get to the
app list then select or type "mono", then the option will remain
available)... or command line "mono yourapp.exe".

Hope that helps.
