Installing Universal Package

Dr.Web for Linux is distributed as an installation file named drweb-workstations_<version>~linux_<platform>.run, where <version> is a line that contains the version and time of product release, and <platfrom> is a platform for which the product is intended (x86 for 32-bit platforms and amd64 for 64-bit platforms). For example:

Note that the installation file name corresponding to the above-mentioned format is referred to as <file_name>.run.

To install Dr.Web for Linux components

1.Download the archive from the official Doctor Web website.

2.Save the archive to the hard disk drive of the computer.

3.Allow the archive to execute, for example, using the following command:

# chmod +x <file_name>.run

4.Execute the archive using the following command:

# ./<file_name>.run

or use the standard file manager of the graphical shell for both changing file properties and running the file.

At that, an integrity of the installation archive is verified and then a set of files is extracted from the archive to temporary directory and installation procedure is automatically started. If not started with root privileges, the installation program attempts to elevate the privileges, using the sudo. If this stage is failed, the installation is terminated.

Depending on the environment where the distribution is started, one of the following installation programs runs:

Installation Wizard for graphics mode

Installer for command-line mode

At that, the installer for command-line mode is automatically started if the Installation Wizard for graphics mode fails to start.

5.Follow the prompts of the installer.

Note that if the used Linux distribution features SELinux, the installation process can be interrupted by the security subsystem. If such situation occurs, set SELinux to the (Permissive) mode. To do this, enter the following command:

# setenforce 0

and restart the installer.

After the installation completes, configure SELinux security policies to enable correct operation of the Dr.Web for Linux components.

All the extracted setup files will automatically deleted when installation completes.

After installation completes, the Dr.Web item displays on the application menu in the desktop graphical shell. This item contains two items:

Dr.Web for Linux to run Dr.Web for Linux in graphics mode

Remove Dr.Web components item to delete the components

The program indicator automatically appears in the notification area after the user logs in again.

Note that for correct operation of Dr.Web for Linux, it may be necessary to install packages specified in the System Requirements section (for example, the library that enables support for 32-bit applications installed on a 64-bit platform and libappindicator1, which is a library for correct display of the program indicator in the notification area).

If necessary, you can take advantage of the custom installation option (for example, to resolve errors that occurred in Dr.Web for Linux operation).
