clamtk update signatures


Is there a command for clamtk's virus signatures to be updated from the command line?
I'm getting tired of having to login as root in order to update the signatures.
I would like to be able to just do: su root and then tell clamtk to update it's signatures.

OK. Im a relative newbie and am running SUSE 10.2 and ClamAV. To update the signatures I open a terminal, then su and password. After that I change to the root (/) directory and type freshclam

Thats what works here...hope it helps....

Regards

Thank you!

This time when I started clamtk, it did not complain about the signatures being out of date.
