Thread for my Sophos Install.
I had the same issue as Paul88 because I was not smart enough to change the settings in my browser lol. I then followed hollowface's instructions to Extract it, but, my Archive Manager was/looked different than the screenshot he posted, so I just clicked Extract anyhow and it seemed to do what it should.
The install went okay even though I didn't understand most of it. After downloading with Archive manager I noticed that there was a file in /tmp and one in /home. I went to "Home" and clicked on "install.sh" and chose "Run" but that did not work. I then clicked on "Run in Terminal", that did not work either.
I then went to #3 in hollowface's Tutorial( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/578679/sophos-antivirus-for-linux/ ) as he said to do, and ran: sudo ~/sophos-av/install.sh This worked to install Sophos.
I now tried to configure the GUI with sudo /opt/sophos-av/bin/savsetup as suggested by hollowface but could not get it to work.
I will post this to show that on-access scanning is running: sudo /opt/sophos-av/bin/savdstatus

Sophos Anti-Virus is active and on-access scanning is running

Don't really know what on-acess scanning is yet.
