    Exclamation Real PPA For ClamAv Needed

    REF: Ubuntu 12.04

    I've tried various methods and sites to install the correct, working PPA for ClamAv.

    I get referred to....


    ...by numerous pages, BUT (for me) they are totally confusing. Neither provides the EXACT Terminal Command to install the correct, current, ClamAv PPA for Ubuntu 12.40.

    PLEASE, what is the current Terminal Command for Ubuntu's ClamAv PPA? One that worked within the last few weeks.

    NOTE: I had a launchpad.net PPA way back but Updater cannot reach it.

    To add the Launchpad PPA for ClamAV (the first link in your post), type the following commands into a terminal.

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-clamav/ppa
    (adds the PPA)

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    (updates the repository information)

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install clamav
    (should install the latest ClamAV version)

    Hope that helps,

    Now, will this allow automatic virus definition and ClamTK update?

    No. You don't need a "Real PPA for ClamAV". The current clamav release is available from the Ubuntu archive for all releases. If you're running 11.04 or later it's a simple matter of applying all the available regular system updates. If you're on 8.04 or 10.04 you have to enable the backports repository. It's there to be installed. No PPA needed.
