Nothing special should be required, as long as the binfmt kernel
extension is working.  It is by default on Ubuntu, I think.  (It's
depended on by the mono-common package.)

You'll need the core 2.0 framework libraries, as well as any others
that your assembly depends on.  It's not possible for us to extract
that information from just the filename.

Try running "mono PdfProcess.exe" from the command-line.  If you see
any errors about assemblies that cannot be found, just figure out the
Ubuntu package that assembly is provided by and install it.
