Very new to Linux so please bare with me. I need to use silverlite for some of my online programs that I use for Real Estate but I am getting no where. I tried following several installation guides but none worked.

What problems are you running into? Could you please describe what "getting no where" locks like, what error messages for example you are getting?
This would make it a lot easier to help. :)

PS: I have Mono installed without any problems to use some KeePass features.

I went through the steps and it seems like nothing has happened. I tried loading silverlite and it still says I need silverlite, this is the page its a map that needs silverlite to access.
I don't know that I followed the instructions correctly to install mono or if it just is not working properly.
Could you walk me through the steps to install mono (please be really  explanatory).

Can it be that you are actually talking about Silverlight and Moonlight?

What information are you referring to in regard to installing Mono to be able to use Silverlight?

Sorry, I've never used Silverlight or Moonlight. So am sure there are others better suited to help. But have you actually installed anything Silverlight related? Like Moonlight or wine-silverlight5.1-installer that I can see in the repository?

If you're really after Mono, could you please open a Terminal (Ctr+Alt+t) run:

sudo aptitude search mono | grep ^i

That will show you what mono packages you have installed on your system.

Hope that helps :)

Hello!

Give this a try: http://www.maketecheasier.com/install-and-run-silverlight-in-linux/

Be aware that Silverlight runs under WINE in Linux, so this may be an issue if you're running LL on a low-resource PC...

Hello!

Since it doesn't seem that Moonlight is working very well for you, there is another program, Pipelight, that allows Windows plug-ins such as Silverlight to be used in Firefox. It runs under WINE, so WINE is also installed. In the past, I have found that using WINE takes a good bit out of lower-resource machines, so that may be a factor for you.

Installing Silverlight and Pipelight is explained at: http://pipelight.net/cms/installation.html

Hope this points you in the right direction to get the Silverlight support you need...
