HowTo Use/Install F-PROT Antivirus On Ubuntu

Open the terminal, go to your home directory and become root:

cd ~ sudo su

Then download the DEB package (the one whose link you've just copied to the clipboard) like this (using the link from your clipboard):

wget http://files.f-prot.com/files/linux-x86/fp-linux-ws.deb

Install the package like this:

dpkg -i fp-linux-ws.deb

F-PROT is a command line application, Fortunately, http://web.tiscali.it/sharp/xfprot/ provides a GUI for F-PROT (called XFPROT) that we can install as follows:

wget http://web.tiscali.it/sharp/xfprot/xfprot_1.22-1_i386.deb
dpkg -i
xfprot_1.22-1_i386.deb

Now we need to create menu entry for F-PROT

gedit /usr/share/applications/fprot.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Name=F-Prot
Comment=Anti-Virus Application
Exec=xfprot
Icon=/usr/local/xfprot/icons/antivirus-48x48.png
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Application;System;


Save the file. You should now find F-PROT under Applications > System Tools > F-Prot:

After you've started F-PROT/XFPROT for the first time, you will be asked to accept the XFPROT license (GPL). Check I agree, don't show this again and click on Ok:
