Mono Firebird Example updated for Mono 2.6/2.10.x release (#ubuntu / #debian)

Mono Firebird Example updated for Mono 2.6 release

First I hope you have Firebird 2.5 already installed with examples :)

Second Install Monodevelop and Mono
In my case was something like this on ubuntu
sudo apt-get install  mono-gmcs mono-gac mono-utils monodevelop monodoc-browser monodevelop-nunit monodevelop-versioncontrol  monodoc-gtk2.0-manual 

Also on Debian you can use mono 2.10.x by using experimental repository (after you add it in /etc/apt/sources.list)

sudo apt-get -t experimental install  mono-gmcs mono-gac mono-utils monodevelop monodoc-browser monodevelop-nunit monodevelop-versioncontrol  monodoc-gtk2.0-manual 

You must download the .Net Provider 2.6.5 for mono binary version NETProvider-2.6.5-MONO_LINUX.7z
Extract it somewhere in the project dir where you want to build it

Create an new C# Console Project
Then add the Firebird .net assembly to the test project
References-> Edit References -> .Net Assembly
browse to the FirebirdSql.Data.FirebirdClient.dll that you downloaded before (and extracted)
then click Add button



Fill the Main.cs this way and Build Solution (Also add System.Data references)



Then click run after the solution is build and the result should be like this
