The ECO server is not supported except on WIndows servers. Even so the SLG developers have tried to do all they possibly can to help Linux server owners get a server running. Right now the issue is with Mono and although they even rolled the .Net version used in Eco back in 5.5.4 to try and resolve the issue the Linux Server will still not work. The resolution to this and the ability to have Linux supported as a server will come once .Net gets its next big update and it can be used on Linux and Mono will no longer be required to be installed "in the middle".
Until then there is really nothing to do but install on a WIndows Server
