I am trying to install the .net 2.5 framework in a ubuntu box.

I am following the instructions from these links:

After I start the

`bash winetricks dotnet35 `

although the 2.0 .net is installed successfully my 3.0 installation fails giving me an error encountered screen which has a link to some microsoft owned page for troubleshouting general .net installation issues...

Any ideas what I am missing?

Maybe you should post your question within the Wine community / forum, where you'll find more likely a solution – Matten Dec 4 '11 at 17:02

Appdb says "The installer stop works.". It just doesn't work. You should use Mono if you want to run .net framework based apps.
