    Installation of .deb files - AVG

    I'd like to install AVG Free for Linux to evaluate the package.

    I'm using Ubuntu 9.04.

    I've downloaded the .deb package to my desktop.

    I can't open the .deb package with Gdebi Package Installer to install the software. Appears to be a security restriction (Oy vay!).

    Has anyone installed AVG Free 8.5 on Jaunty yet?

    Matt.

    Re: Installation of .deb files - AVG

    What errors are given when installing from the terminal?

    First open a terminal and change to the directory that the deb file is in:

    Code:
    cd /path/to/deb
    To install from the terminal input this command:

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i NAME_OF_PACKAGE.deb
    -o)
    /\\

    I've got it installed and running, although I wonder why I bother with it.

    Thank you SPCWINGO!

    It installed fine using your instructions. I had used the gDebi Installer that is standard but it doesn't prompt for root access for installation.

    I'll find out who to report this to for the next fix.
