Here's what happened when I tried to install Avast!
Initially, I followed the instructions in How To Install And Use Avast Antivirus In Linux Mint / Ubuntu
. That didn't work...http://ihaveapc.com/2011/07/how-to-install-and-use-avast-antivirus-in-linux-mint-ubuntu/
I was left with a bunch files and folders that didn't start Avast!
Next, I followed these directions:
1- Changed to the directory where I downloaded Avast!
2- Executed the install
sudo apt-get install avast4workstation_1.3.0-2_i386.deb
3- Was asked for and provided my Administrator password. The following ensued:
Reading package lists...Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information...Done
E: Unable to locate package avast4workstation_1.3.0-2_i386.deb
E: Couldn't find any package by regex avast4workstation_1.3.0-2_i386.deb
I really need some advice (and a glass of Merlot.)
