    Hi, Yesterday (Nov10th) I followed the excellent guide on how to install AVG for Linux. (I am running Ubuntu 7.10.)

    As a relative newbie to Linux it was the best guide I have seen especially as all the 'errors' that might be encountered were also covered :) ... however with regard to the UPDATE of the AVG, will I have to continue to do manual updates in order to overcome the avg7info.ctf error, or have I missed a trick somewhere along the line ? :confused: I ask this because this morning 11th.Nov, the same error happened when I pressed the 'check for updates'.

    I would appreciate someones assistance on this as I would prefer the updates to run 'automatically' as they do on my non-ubuntu PC.
    Cheers, Radiolad

    You could create a cron job that calls /opt/grisoft/avg7/bin/avgupdate.

    E.g.
    Code:
    0 12 * * * /opt/grisoft/avg7/bin/avgupdate
    would call /opt/grisoft/avg7/bin/avgupdate each day at 12:00h.

    Updating AVG Does Not Work

    Falco:

    I followed your excellent tutorial on installing AVG and needed every error message workaround. However, I come to a halt when it comes to the updates.

    Service/program settings does not launch to allow me to manually update. Neither can I scan from the Test button. I am at a loss as to how to launch the update file? I have attempted to right click the file and open with Grisoft, but that doesn't work either.

    I am using Klikit (www.klikit.org), a Kubuntu/Feisty distro. Suggestions?

    Do you get any errors when you run
    Code:
    /opt/grisoft/avg7/bin/avgupdate
    in a terminal?

    Can you try to run that command again as your desktop user instead of root?
    Code:
    su name_of_user
    /opt/grisoft/avg7/bin/avgupdate
