I use mono on my mac now for my .NET development, when I dont feel like using my pc, but I want to use mono on my Universities linux server, but I dont have root. Is there a way I can install mono in my local directory, and have people I submit my work to compile and run my programs?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What does "and have people I submit my work to compile and run my programs" mean? – tink Apr 30 '13 at 20:27
I'm not sure this will apply to mono, but you can use "chroot" to run programs inside a fake root file system within your home directory. – rtev Apr 30 '13 at 20:31
we have to submit our work using a submit utility and provide a makefile, I would like them to be able to run my programs even if they do not have mono themselves. – user1765444 Apr 30 '13 at 20:34
@user1765444 - Yes, Mono can compile to a standalone file. See here – Bobson Apr 30 '13 at 21:17
