recently people were complaining about cntrl alt t not opening a terminal. to rectify this (in mint) go to 'menu' and then 'preferences' and then 'keyboard shortcuts.' then find 'run a terminal' in the list, click it, and then set what you want it to be (likely 'cntrl alt T')
A/V Software? I don't need A/V software. I've run Linux since '98 w/o A/V software and have never had a virus. I never even had a firewall until '01 when I began to get routers with firewalls pre installed. With Linux if a vulnerability is detected a fix is quickly found and then upon your next update the vulnerability is patched. If you must worry about viruses on a Linux system only worry about them in the sense that you can infect a windows user. I recommend Linux Mint or, if you need a lighter weight operating system that fits on a cd, MX14 or AntiX.
