    May I know why would you like avast?
    If you need antivirus protection ClamAV is in the repository and is very easy to install.

    From what I Have found , Avast must be registered in order to work and there are some instructions for updating definitions due to the size. Clam may be a better solution for Ubuntu. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2098622

    You need to activate, also the free version of Avast need it by email. Do you get an error when you start it or something?
