Hi all,

I recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 and set about downloading and installing ESET NOD32 Anti virus 4 for Linux Desktop.

Once installed I noticed that the GUI launches at initial system start up (allowing me to perform scans etc) but once closed , cannot be re-opened via the launcher - pressing "launch" does nothing as does pinning it to the launcher and double clicking or trying to launch the program that way.

Any ideas on what the problem may, how to rectify the issue?

Wow, first day and 442 views, what does that mean?

1. Lots of others have had the same issue but are not commenting? Hmm, good luck!

lol....could be pcpunk,

 

Never mind - I can scan my system at start up which is probably all I need to be doing.

 

Just seeing a GUI is comforting (have not seen many of them so far using Linux....lol).

Just out of interest, mate -

 

  1. Have you seen http://www.consult-ed.org/microblogs/cloud/sudo-apt-get-update-eset ?
  2. If so/not, had you followed something like "Right click on the downloaded installer [eset_nod32av_64bit_en_.linux] and select >Properties >Permissions; check off the box for "Execute: Allow executing file as program", then "Close" the input dialogue. "?

Cheers

 

Wiz

If push comes to shove, you can launch a scan of your system from the command line. Open a terminal window and type in sudo /opt/eset/esets/sbin/esets_scan. You might want to ls -l the /opt directory to make sure eset is installed there, although that is the default directory for it. If you want to be more specific about what is scanned, add -h to the end of the sudo command for a help directory listing of what the command line options are and what they do. For more detail info, enter man esets_scan at the command line for the manual page.

Hi guys,

Thanks for your assistance and input.

 

 

 

If so/not, had you followed something like "Right click on the downloaded installer [eset_nod32av_64bit_en_.linux] and select >Properties >Permissions; check off the box for "Execute: Allow executing file as program", then "Close" the input dialogue. "?

 

Thanks for that Wiz, I did follow those instructions.

 

 

If push comes to shove, you can launch a scan of your system from the command line. Open a terminal window and type in sudo /opt/eset/esets/sbin/esets_scan.

 

Thanks BC Advisor, that is handy to know - for now I have simply been updating the signature database and running a scan at start up. At some point I will get around to re-installing the product correctly but not sure when that will be as I am taking a look at Kubuntu and may switch to that.
