RE:Virus Protection With AVG Antivirus On Ubuntu
 
Hello,

RE http://www.howtoforge.com/avg_antivirus_ubuntu_feisty and AVG 7.5 GUI

I installed ver 8.5 from http://free.avg.com/gb-en/download.

But, the GUI seems to be gone.

Does anyone know how to get the GUI to start for AVG 8.5?

Thanks.

Open a terminal and become root:
Code:

sudo su
Then run
Code:

updatedb
locate avg

What's the output of the last command?

Can you open a terminal and run
Code:

avgscan
? Does that bring up a GUI?

ensens 17th July 2010 17:38

No. It looks like the command line scanner.

Code:

brian@koala:~/dl1$ avgscan valz.jpg

Did you install the .deb package? Did you see any errors during installation?

ensens 22nd July 2010 03:39

Yes, I installed the .deb package named, avg85flx-r812-a3371.i386.deb.

There were no errors during installation.

I installed this on both Ubuntu 10.04 and Xubuntu 10.04.

No GUI on either OS.
