Thanks Edward, I do mostly desktop application which rely on Gtk I didn't 
think about other Mono applications. I love Slackware but stopped using it 
due to frustration with using Monodevelop in the environment that Pat 
prefers, but that may have changed in recent years.

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.
