Question about Clam AV and Clam TK

Postby bradthewanderer » Tue Jan 05, 2010 9:27 am

Hi all,

I have installed Mint and love it, its a nice system a little better than Ubuntu, which i still use. I have installed Clam AV from the software center on Mint, however to use it in GUI, I have to install Clam TK which I can get the latest .deb off of their page at Sourceforge.net. Is this a good place to get .deb files out of the Software channel, are they trustworthy?

Thank you in advance for any help you all can give me :)

I'd get ClamTK from Synaptic rather than Sourceforge: less chance of problems.
Nothing wrong with Sourceforge by the way. Lots of useful stuff on there.
