    No need, it supposedly can read it from standard locations. Question is simply why can't WineHQ provide convenient packages for it.

    For a lot of people not installing winemono at all is right thing todo. Wine mono exists so you can run .net applications. Depending on you country it may be illegal to use the Microsoft .net runtime on wine and at times Microsoft .net runtime does to work..

    Other than the fact it turns out that having winemono installed results in some programs failing that otherwise work. There are some quirks here and there that need solving.

    Yes there is a global install option designed but its not exactly the best.
