Re: How can I install ClamAV's newest version?

Looks like you do have timeshift. ...snip /timeshift/snapshots/2017-12-24_09-07-10/localhost/var/lib/ucf/cache/:etc:clamav:freshclam.conf /timeshift/snapshots/2018-05-13_00-00-03/localhost/etc/clamav/freshclam.conf /timeshift/snapshots/2018-05-13_00-00-03/localhost/usr/share/doc/clamav-freshclam/exa...

Re: How can I install ClamAV's newest version?

It looks to me like it didn't get installed correctly or completely. user@user ~ $ clamscan -r / LibClamAV Error: cl_load(): No such file or directory: /usr/local/share/clamav ERROR: Can't get file status I would suggest that you timeshift back to just before you tried installing from source.

You might be able to, check out LazyDev's threads on pg. 10 viewtopic.php?f=58&t=243792. I think this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nGbWE-pvIE is what did it for him.

Re: How can I install ClamAV's newest version?

I'd take a look in /usr/local/etc/freshclam.conf.sample and see whats there and possibly rename it to freshclam.conf.
EDIT: and probably move it to /etc/

@phd21 & @Hoser Rob, I'm assuming that the OP is running a server with Windows clients.

Not sure about the possible missing firmware but the long-standing locale issue can most likely be resolved by following this old post. viewtopic.php?f=42&t=111527

Re: How can I install ClamAV's newest version?

Only 0.99.4 is available from the repos, if you need the latest and greatest you'll have to download the tar.gz files from here and follow the readme instructions. I'll assume you've read all the pros and cons regarding anti-virus software on desktop Linux so I won't go there. Also have a reason to ...

Re: Firefox 60.0 and Firejail

I followed Pjotr helpful instructions and installed Firejail 9.54 and Firefox 60 started to work. However, I cannot now open .pdf files although I can download them by choosing the save file option. I can open them as before using Firefox 60 if I do not start it in Firejail. I think that what you'r...

Re: Firejail and my browsers [SOLVED]

Just add a # to the beginning of the line, for example # tracelog. You can also try firejail --ignore=tracelog firefox for a quick check if tracelog is indeed the culprit. If this works, then it's tracelog's fault. Alas, neither worked. So not tracelog, uh? Thanks for helping, guys. Can you post th...

Re: Firejail and my browsers [SOLVED]

Well, I got mine going by commenting out tracelog and private-bin palemoon in my locale palemoon.profile. Not sure how these two lines effect security though. tracelog is there to log attempted violations to syslog. For example, if a program tries to access a file or folder that firejail doesn't al...

Hey Amii, I read your post, then decided to update palemoon regardless, because I didn't want to be running an out of date browser. Anyway, I got the very same problem. I tried whitelisting instead of noblacklisting the two entries in my local palemoon.profile which got rid of the warning about impr...

Thanks, I do have that enabled, and moved the icon to the top of the list but its still not selected when typing 'chr'. Is it supposed to be or is there another way to launch it using the keyboard?

Re: How to auto select frequently used apps in the Start menu...

I don't think there's a way to do that but if the "Show favorites and quit options" is enabled, you can drag icons in and out of that panel (above the bottom three). So you could replace the FF icon with Chrome for example.

Well, you could use grep from the terminal, something like: grep -r -l --include={*.pdf,*.docx} "search term" /path/to/base/search/directory/ where -r => recursive -l => list filenames --include={*.pdf,*.docx} => optional, only search in pdf and docx files. (you can add more) "search term" => search...
