Maybe to late to reply, but i am install avast on LM 12 and LM 11 and works fine ( except after update, and you need add line kernel.shmmax = 128000000 to sysctl.conf )

i find a post related to your problem http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/ubuntu ... ideas.html

... entered as above and still the same.
But the issue that guy was having on that ubuntu link you posted is the exact same that I'm having here... tried step by step the suggestions given there and at the last step I get ...

Code: Select all

subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 127
Errors were encountered while processing:

Manually cleaned out all the files ... still can't use update nor SPM:

I wonder what is still blocking this :? could it be 'cabextract.desktop' - can this prog be removed and re-installed ? (usr/share/apps/konqueror)
