Your question is about mono. Andy's reply is about monodevelop. So that was probably just a miscommunication.

I haven't used slackware in 20 years, but the mono project download page doesn't have anything about slackware, so unless slackware is compatible with debian/ubuntu and derivatives, or centos/fedora/rhel and derivatives, or opensuse/sles, then I would have to assume, there is no slackware mono package aside from whatever slackware distributes.

On all those other platforms, I've had very good luck building from source. Simply follow the instructions (which usually boil down to ./configure && make && sudo make install). Hopefully you could have a very pleasant experience building from source. I have rarely ever seen it fail, and when it does fail, it has always been easy to remedy. On other linuxes.  YMMV.
