How do i install from a ".deb.run" file?


#1

I have just down loaded a file from bitdefender:

BitDefender-Antivirus-Scanner-7.7-1-linux-i586.deb.run

I’ve tried to get synaptic to read it (file>add downloaded packages) - i couldn’t ‘find’ it …

Please, what do i do with it?

Hi Marvin,

In this case simply open a terminal and run the following command from the directory where the actual BitDefender-Antivirus-Scanner-7.7-1-linux-i586.deb.run file is located:

$ sudo bash BitDefender-Antivirus-Scanner-7.7-1-linux-i586.deb.run 
[sudo] password for username: 

Scroll down License Agreement with SPACE BAR and type “accept” and ENTER to begin the installation. Depending on your installation you may also want to install graphical user interface:

Do you want to install BitDefender Antivirus Scanner GUI package ? (Y/n) y

After successful installation you will see message:

BitDefender Antivirus Scanner successfully installed!

If not and instead you see some error copy and paste it here so I can provide you with additional help…
