I don't quite get this...
You have build an application using mono under windows, right? Is it
using some windows-specific code? If not if should run fine executing it
with mono under linux (I do this all the time...) without wine.

I am no expert, but i think actually the exe extension denotes many
different things - among them are the so called PE-files which are
Windows executables (managed or unmanaged). For the unmanaged ones a
windows is needed - or a compatible api (ReactOS, linux+wine, etc) for
managed code a clr is needed.
mono does provide a clr under linux. So - as long as there are no
P/Invokes in your app, it should run fine by simply calling "mono
