This article explains how to determine the installation status and version number for a Mono install on a Linux endpoint. It also provides steps for uninstalling and reinstalling the application.
- Datto RMM
The Datto RMM Agent requires the installation of a full runtime version of an open-source toolset called Mono (external link) on each monitored Linux device. Select a topic to learn more:
- Determine if you have Mono installed on your device
- Verify the version
- Uninstalling Mono
- Reinstalling Mono
Determine if you have Mono installed on your device
1. Open a Linux command-line session.
3. If the terminal session returns a "Command not found" error, you don't have Mono installed, or you have a broken installation. See the Uninstalling Mono section of this article for steps to resolve the issue.
Verify the version
If you have Mono installed, you'll see the version listed near the top of the screen. You'll see output similar to the following:
[moja@moja-fedora29 ~]$ mono --version
Mono JIT compiler version 18.104.22.168 (tarball Thu Apr 11 08:39:50 UTC 2019)
Copyright (C) 2002-2014 Novell, Inc, Xamarin Inc and Contributors. www.mono-project.com
GC: sgen (concurrent by default)
To uninstall the existing version of Mono, enter the following in a Linux command-line session.
sudo apt-get purge mono-runtime
sudo apt-get autoremove
If you reinstall the Agent after removing Mono, the agent installer will detect that Mono is missing and will reinstall it automatically.
