Hello,

I installed the .deb package on Natty Ubuntu (11.04), and everything seemed to install correctly. After updating via the GUI and then running a scan, however, it seemed to skip a large number of root protected packages, and displayed a lot of I/O errors. I assume this is because the program does not have root access. How do I fix this?

Thanks for any help!

Hi Idra,

From command line please enter root . go to /opt/BitDefender-scanner/bin and run ./bdgui - This is how you start the GUI with root privilege .

Hope it helps.

Andrei.
