I have been trying to install clamav on my Sparky installation. I went to synaptic downloaded it, could not find it any where so went to terminal and tried apt-get. terminal says I have the latest clamav. I still can't find it, so being an old geezer I go to the Expermintal pull up pclinux and try again getting the same results. Then I went to clamav web site and read for two hours no help for what I am looking for there. so I came to the experts. What I am doing wrong?

Clam is a terminal-based application, you might want a GUI front-end such as KlamAV

What did you do different? Did you use the commands, or install the GUI, or what?
