    Does anybody know how to get Microsoft's .NET framework v2.0 or higher installed on linux? I'm using ubuntu 9.10, but I'm new to it and I really don't know my way around it. I need the framework to play a game (SWGemu). I have the game itself installed, but it won't start without the framework. In windows, the game would automatically install the framework, but it doesn't in linux. And when I try installing the framework by itself, I get an error saying that it could not verify. I'm assuming that this means it tried to verify windows, and couldn't. Can anybody help me? Thanks in advance!

    The Microsoft .Net Framework won't install or run natively on Linux. So, I presume you're doing this through Wine? If so, I found this thread which describes installing the .Net framework 2.0 in Wine on Ubuntu.

    Peace...

    Yes, I forgot to mention that I'm using wine. Thanks for the link!

    Isn't that what the Mono Project is for?

    I think so, but I'm not sure. I looked into it a bit, but I can't say I understood more than a little bit of it.

    sudo apt-get install mono

    That should install mono for you....

    Once that's done, you should be able to run a .NET app from the command line with "mono appname.exe"

    I haven't tried using the Micro$ .NET on wine, but I imagine it's a similar process to installing any other device driver/framework.

    Just makes more sense to me to use the native version rather than the emulated one....
