When I install using "sudo dpkg -i avg75lms-r49-a1124.i386.deb" there are no problems.
It also said:
Please do registration with avgscan -register.
See /opt/grisoft/avg7/doc/README for more information.
I read /opt/grisoft/avg7/doc/README and I noticed they gave me a License Number but for a trial. I don't want a trial, I want the free version. I know this is a "Full Version" as it says that on the page I downloaded the files from.
I tried "sudo avgscan -register" and it still asked for a License Number.
When I tried "sudo '/opt/grisoft/avg7/bin/avgupdate'" and "sudo '/opt/grisoft/avg7/bin/avgupdate' -o" I got the same thing as before. Post: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...3/#post2961049
I then tried "sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/avg.desktop" and noticed when I pasted the text in avg.desktop that some of the paths might be incorrect, not every installion will be the same.
For the line: "File:/usr/share/applications/avg.desktop" there was a avg.desktop file, thats good.
For the line: "Icon=/opt/grisoft/avggui/prog/pixmaps/avgico_big.png" I looked and found /opt/grisoft/avg7/ but no prog file
I unpacked the file: "tar -xzvf avg75lms-r49-a1124.i386.tar.gz"
Changed the directory: "cd avg7-linux"
Installed: "sudo ./install.sh"
It asked me some questions then installed.
Here's what I got:
Do you want to continue? (yes/no): yes
Do you agree with the license? (yes/no): yes
Detected operating system is:
Linux for i686: Debian
