This is fairly easy too thanks to the pmono script, you can prefix your mono command lines with it..

$ pmono monodevelop whatever.sln
$ pmono monodoc
$ pmono gmcs /?
$ pmono nunit-console my-test-assembly.dll

    1. Hi There, Unfortunately, since I use a slightly strange method of building the debs I don’t produce deb-src packages. You can however download the package builder yourself from github and start it off with some different options.

      In the long term I’m hoping to get things to work using the ubuntu launchpad.

  2. I’m having the same problem as Jose, except my CPU is x86_64 (which my research shows me is the same thing as amd64). Here’s the output from “sudo apt-get install pmono-*” after adding the line you said to my sources.list:

    bryce@BRYCE-LAPTOP:~$ sudo apt-get install pmono-*
