    Question Clam AV

    Hi there,

    Installed Clam AV on your recommendations using synaptics & Ubuntu center.

    It's AV engine & GUI don't update despite that they are checked?

    Tried un installing but wasn't successful.

    Could you care to explain how to clean uninstall it & the correct procedure to install for Ubuntu.

    Thanks.

    Re: Clam AV

    Hi ,

    Try

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall clamav clamtk
    Then
    Code:
    sudo freshclam
    The second command is for updating Virus database , but do not bother in future cuz this service runs automatically every-time you boot you OS.

    Thanks

    Question Re: Clam AV

    Thanks NikTh you are one genius member.

    Why is there a X sign next to AV engine 0.97.5 & GUI version 4.38?

    Do not bother . Bugs of GUI

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/clamtk/+bug/520263
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/clamtk/+bug/1052193

    Code:
    sudo freshclam
    do the "job" , as I said it runs automatically in every boot.

    You can check it , if you reboot your pc and then in terminal give this command
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i clam
    EDIT: OR
    Code:
    ps -A | grep -i freshclam
    and you will see the service up and running.
    Thanks

    Hello, i cant fix the old GUI, but i created my own PyQt4 GUI, and its Libre.





    1) sudo apt-get install python-qt4 clamav
    2) Download http://paste.ubuntu.com/1120243 save as " antivirux.py "
    3) Give antivirux.py executable privileges, execute it, GUI is self explanatory.
