I may have already responded to this email, however, the hard thing to get
hold of in understanding the problem is that to get Klamov, I have to be able
to access the internet. Even using a package manager, it is a download, and I
am closed out of using the Internet from that computer.
I think I sent you an explanation in total, but virus' are such a non-
occurrence in Linux, it is hard to consider being kept from the Internet. If
you know a way to download and copy Klamov to a CD, I am writing to you now
from an old laptop I fixed. It has a writer and works good enough to copy the
I know how to install an application using a gui package manager. I know how
to install an application using apt. What I don't know how to do is download
an application to a folder then copy to a CD and install the executable
application to the computer. I think that is the only way I will be able to
get virus software in that computer, and I don't know if the virus has already
considered that options and closed that door too. There must be a way,
though. Don't you think?
Perhaps there is something I am overlooking. That seems most probable, but I
don't know what it would be. Thanks for trying.
By the way, I think Clamav for KDE is Klamov, not sure but saw it written that
way.. Thanks again friend!
