Antivirus for my 64-bit Ubuntu hardy
« on: June 15, 2008, 12:10:32 PM »
I don't know why but it doesn't work using the command:

 ./lib/avast4workstation/share/avast/desktop/install-desktop-entries.sh install

when i write avast or avastgui in the terminal, it said "command not found"..
I've also got it in the menĂ¹, but when i click over the icon i obtain "Failed to execute child process "avastgui" (No such file or directory)"..
what's the problem?

is there anyone that have a .deb package for 64-bit so send me?
bye and thanks

seems that you haven't installed the main binaries.

Normally the layout looks this way:
/usr/bin/avastgui (link, points to wrapper script)
/usr/lib/avast4workstation/bin/avastgui (the binary, called from wrapper script, with proper LD_LIBRARY_PATH presets)

check the presence of those files.

hallo,
those binaries are part of the package. use find / -type f -name avastgui
... and paste the results here. it's probably problem in the default path only, because when the install-desktop-entries.sh exists, those binaries should exist as well.
