How to Install Kaspersky Antivirus/ Internet Security on Linux

Fedora Core Instructions

Command "yum install kaspersky" won't work.

First you have to download your required product/software from
        http://www.kaspersky.com/linux

After that you have to install the downloaded package (rpm for Fedora Core/RHEL/CentOS etc and .deb for debian systems like Ubuntu)

For rpm packages try this command to install Kaspersky Software

# rpm -Uvh packagename.rpm

Also you can try this command

# yum localinstall packagename.rpm

For debian packages try this command to install Kaspersky Software.

$ sudo dpkg -i package.deb

  1. Okay i downloaded a package in the download folder. I tried the rpm -Uvh but it said no such file or directory. Where should i place the rpm installer?

  2. First cd to the directory where you downloaded it. For example,

    $ cd /home/FJA/Downloads

    Then provide the filename with rpm command. Remember you need to logged in as root to do this. For example, for my rpm file kis.rpm it is:

    # rpm -Uvh kis.rpm

  3. Thanks for the instruction....i was able to install it but there's a message saying: Kaspersky Anti-virus for Linux Workstation has been installed successfully but needs to be properly configured before using. Unfortunately, RPM is not able to run scripts interactively, so please run /opt/kaspersky/kav4ws/lib/bin/setup/postinstall.pl. Okay so i run the file but nothing happens. Can you help plz.
