My recent desire to run HFM.net from my Ubuntu PC inspired me to post this guide. The tutorials I found on the web were incomplete. One guide here on OCN is dated, but mostly accurate. I've simply updated it to reflect how I got it to work. This works under 12.04.3. I don't see why it wouldn't work under 13.x.

Open a terminal and run this.
Code:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following to the bottom of file that opens.

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/directhex/monoxide/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/directhex/monoxide/ubuntu jaunty main


Save and go back to the terminal. Put this in.
Code:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 23DC003A

Now run this.
Code:
sudo apt-get update

Then install mono.
Code:
sudo apt-get install mono-complete

Download HFM Any CPU Version (.zip) here: HFM.net

Extract. You can put it anywhere. A good place is /home/user/ Rename folder to something simple like HFM.

Open a terminal. Run the following:
Code:
sudo mono /home/user/HFM/HFM.exe

If you want to have HFM output a HTML page (website), check out this guide.

Using HFM.net with Dropbox

If for whatever reason Dropbox isn't your thing, you can use Apache. For most people, Dropbox will be just fine. If not, let me know and I'll be happy to add the instructions in here.
