Bullshit. Last time I've tried to use "nautilus-clamscan" in Ubuntu 12.04 it was broken as shit. That's far from being "mature".


Nautilus-clamscan is not a ClamAV project, so its maturity is completely irrelevant to ClamAV's maturity. Besides, ClamAV is mostly used on e-mail systems and my experience tells me it works great.

But I'm curious: what didn't work in nautilus-clamscan?

After installing nautilus-clamscan and right clicking on a directory (or something else), it simply would not show the option to scan things.

Oh my...
So you didn't even get to the point of using the program.

My experience with clamscan was when my windows installation quit working. Thinking it could have been a virus, I ran the scanner on the whole partition, from my working linux partition.
That was taking too long on my poor netbook, I ^C'ed it and just reinstalled windows.

It didn't find anything in those two hours, but neither did a full MS Security Essentials scan. I guess it's ok.

So, you installed a Nautilus plugin, and the Nautilus plugin didn't show the option for ClamAV, thus it's the fault of the ClamAV developers that the Nautilus plugin failed to install correctly?

That's some twisted logic you got going on there.

Agreed. I wouldn't consider ClamAV a desktop A/V solution. However I have used it on my mail server for about 2 years now, and it works like a charm!
