avast for Linux link not working
« on: March 03, 2013, 08:53:13 PM »
Hi,

I cannot find any link from where I can download and install avast for my personal linux machine. Some external sites/tutorials list http://www.avast.com/linux-home-edition as the link, but it is not working and redirects me to the home page. Also, I cannot find any page/link on your website.

Can you please let me know where I can find the page to download avast for Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit machine, and any necessary installation instructions.  Or has the support for linux been withdrawn?

Thanks!

Thanks Andrzej!

However, that post is more than a year old, and the package version may be old. And I have no way of finding out the latest version. I would like to install the latest version of avast. Any suggestions? :)

That's the latest version. I don't think it's been updated for almost 3 years. Still works.
