AppArmour tar.gz how to Install?


Good day, I just downloaded AppArmour tar.gz, and opted to open it with Mint Install at the moment I opted to download it. It has now been downloaded and I want to know exactly how to install it.

I also downloaded prayer board tar.gz. I had to open it with "engrampa". I now have to open or extract...?

I clicked on the downloaded AppArmour, still nothing happens. It went into temporary files. GetDebian can't open it.

I found apparmour in softpedia.

My computer runs Mint 17 MATE, 64bit.

SuSE and Ubuntu have apparmor already included. That would be the easy way to start with it.

I installed apparmor onto a version of SuSE (9.3 IIRC) years ago but I'm a bit hazy on the details. Apparmor needs to be enabled in the kernel (I imagine it's present but perhaps disabled in Mint's kernel) and you need the utilities too for managing program configurations and logs.

Wouldn't that do it for you? Also spelling it correctly might help.

... Which is wrong. See post #4, @jdkaye :
"" Also spelling it correctly might help. ""

! ! Must be $ sudo apt-get install apparmor

You could try the correct command. You forgot "install"
See post #6, @knudfl :
Code:
sudo apt-get install apparmor

OK thanks it was downloaded and unpackaged.
It does not have a GUI, but runs in the background?

Assuming you have some profiles defined you can confirm it is in use by using the logprof or aa-logprof program. Make sure it's reading the right logfile (I had to specify the filename in SuSE).

It defines how the kernel responds to path name checks...

It doesn't "run in the background".
