Uninstalling mono on Mac OS X

I recently installed mono but now want to uninstall it. To do so requires running a script in terminal available here: http://www.mono-project.com/Mono:OSX...no_on_Mac_OS_X

I copied this into textedit.app and saved as uimono.sh onto my desktop. I don't really know how to use terminal properly. Could someone please advise on what to do next. Would be much appreciated.

Next you want to open up terminal and navigate to the desktop directory. Then, simply type "./uimono.sh" without the quotes and hit return!
Tadaa!

Thanks. When I said I don't know how to use terminal properly, I wasn't lying!

I assume to navigate to desktop I type "cd desktop". After doing that, I type your command, and I get the following output:

"-bash: ./uimono.sh: Permission denied"

Thanks. It seems to try to do more, but I still get permission denied messages.

Code:
rm: /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Commands: Permission denied
rm: /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Headers: Permission denied
rm: /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Home: Permission denied
rm: /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Libraries: Permission denied
rm: /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Mono: Permission denied
rm: /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Resources: Permission denied
override rwxr-xr-x  root/admin for /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/2.10.5/bin/al?y       
rm: /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/2.10.5/bin/al: Permission denied
Is it something to do with the need to run the script as root (see link in first post)?

----------

Update: This seems to have worked

Code:
cd desktop
sudo sh uimono.sh

Hoping someone is still following this.

I tried what was suggested here and got the following error:

Quote:
rm: /Library/Receipts/MonoFramework-*: No such file or directory
What am I doing wrong?

----------

Just checked and saw there is no /Monoframework directory in the /Library/Receipts directory. But it IS installed. ??

You have to run the script as root

Re: the permissions issue, simply run the script as root:

Code:
sudo sh uimono.sh
You might have to manually set the permissions then, by typing "Y" on every prompt.
