    Re: HOWTO: Install AVG free anti-virus

    The install went perfectly.

    So that I wouldn't forget the command needed to update AVG, I did the following:

    ran smeg (or Applications > System Tools > Applications Menu Editor)

    In the same folder that I had AVG (in my case, Internet) , I created a New Entry. entitled AVG UPdate.

    In the Command line I entered: sudo /opt/grisoft/avg7/bin/avgupdate -o
    In the Icon area I entered: /opt/grisoft/avggui/prog/pixmaps/avgupdateico.png

    Make sure that you tick the Run in Terminal box!

    I then dragged this entry just underneath the AVG icon.
    This makes it much easier for me to remember to update.

    Appologies if this post is redundant to any other.

    No apologies needed
    I was thinking to add it as it will make things easier.

    The following is the easiest way to create a menu item for AVG antivirus and also to allow antivirus signature updates happening from the AVG GUI

    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/avg.desktop
    paste the following lines in the empty file that opens:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=AVG Antivirus
    Comment=Antivirus
    Exec=gksudo avggui &
    Icon=/opt/grisoft/avggui/prog/pixmaps/avgico_big.png
    Terminal=false
    Type=Application
    Categories=Application;System;
    save and exit.

    AVG Antivirus will appear in Applications --> System Tools

    Awesome howto by the way. Good job AI.

    Re: HOWTO: Install AVG free anti-virus

    Thanks arnieboy


    Updated the howto
    - added diffrent ways to run avg a) as root b) as normal user.
    - changed the way to add launchers in the application tab.
    - fixed spell errors and typos.
    - Added an extra screenshot showing the application tab with avg launchers.
    - Added a link for discussion about anti-virus and firewall: "Is it needed or not".

    Thank You, AI! Works like a... moose! 10/10.

    To make this HOWTO perfect... UNinstalling guide could be useful.

    In his later years, Oofty Goofty used to like to sit on the front porch of the General Store and
    reminisce about the time he let the late, great John L. Sullivan hit him with a billiard cue.
