Unable to get Manager,io to run on Linux Mint 17.1

Hi everyone, I am absolutely stumped as to why manager accounting suddenly decided not to run on my system. I have used manager for a few years and never experienced this before.
I had completely uninstalled the software and re installed it. it just won’t run.
HELP! :cry:

bob@bob-desktop ~ $ /opt/manager-accounting/manager-accounting

Did this “suddenly decided not to run” follow a Manager update ?
Search for topics on MONO, it may need updating as that has solved other users situations…

I upgraded mono yesterday and still will not run

Have you downloaded since doing the Mono upgrade.
Not re-installing a previous download

bob@bob-desktop ~ $ mono --version
Mono JIT compiler version 3.2.8 (Debian 3.2.8+dfsg-4ubuntu1.1)

I’ve also read that you have to make sure to reboot after the Mono update, then reinstall Manager. Not sure, because I’m not on Linux.

At first it started with sending email error, the after I downloaded the latest manager, it decided not to run. And I rebooted my system as well. And still no luck.

You are on Mono v 3.2.8, you need to have 4.6.2.

How did you go about updating your version of mono?

Try these instructions:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF
echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian wheezy main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-xamarin.list
sudo apt-get update

I followed all your instructions after reboot still shows up old mono.

bob@bob-desktop ~ mono --version Mono JIT compiler version 3.2.8 (Debian 3.2.8+dfsg-4ubuntu1.1) Copyright (C) 2002-2014 Novell, Inc, Xamarin Inc and Contributors. www.mono-project.com TLS: __thread SIGSEGV: altstack Notifications: epoll Architecture: amd64 Disabled: none Misc: softdebug LLVM: supported, not enabled.

That is the standard version from Ubuntu 14.04 (LM17.x) repositories.
Can you try using package manager to unistall Mono, then reboot.

Then, follow
http://www.mono-project.com/docs/getting-started/install/linux/#debian-ubuntu-and-derivatives
Copy and run one line at a time.
And check the version installed.

See if that works, and if not, try starting with mono-complete, and test:
http://www.mono-project.com/docs/getting-started/install/linux/#usage

Then work through the other packages in turn under ‘Usage’ and see if that helps.

I’m not having any luck with this. I did as you sugested, copy and run line by line and still the old version shows up.

Woooo Hooooo! I got it to run and the latest version is now showing:

bob@bob-desktop ~ $ mono --version
Mono JIT compiler version 4.6.2
Thank you soooooooo much for all your help Zark, I owe you a BEER or 3 :slight_smile: Thanks again
