Is it possible to get the path of a process running under Mono in Linux? For example if I launch KeePass using mono KeePass.exe, running ps just shows the command name as mono, while what I really want is KeePass.exe.

As far as I know, the process table records arguments. Try ps ax | grep "mono". – new123456 Jun 30 '11 at 12:57

Do ps ax | grep "mono" - ps will show all processes and their arguments with the ax flag.
