That surprised me - I've had to stop using hugin for a couple of years or so because of the Mono requirement. Every update of Ubuntu I get, I check again.
I'm using the latest version of Ubuntu, 9.04.
I checked again after you said Ubuntu 8.04 dosn't need Mono (which was not my recollection).
If you're right on Ubuntu 8.04, sorry, but you're wrong on 9.04. Telling Synaptic to install hugin pulls in all the Mono cruft. I have a 64 bit machine, but the 32 bit packages can scarcely be different, can they?
If someone, somewhere, can put together a package or install script that lets me use hugin without Mono, I'll use it.
Until then, I'm continuing to use a Windows package under Wine.
