According to the Mono Wiki [1], one could start a Mono binary simply by running it like any other binary, i.e. ./programname.exe. However, on a first try, I got the "cannot execute binary file" error. According to the Wiki, this can be circumvented by restarting systemd-binfmt service.

IMHO, this should be done in the install script of Mono.


Additional info:
* mono 3.4.0-1

Steps to reproduce:

1. Install a Mono binary
2. Start it like ./programname.exe
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  A daemon should be started by the user of the system and not automatically from the package, so no, this will be not implemented.
