    Open software management and look for this antivirus, when you find it, highlight it and down in the tabs change to file list, it should show you executable files.

    P.S. Why the hell would you need an antivirus on openSUSE?? Do you need to scan some files for your friends in order not to infect them while you are perfectly safe? ??

    All the antiviruses deal only (for now? ) with Windows viruses since most linux viruses exist only in labs or have been eradicated with fixes to kernel etc.

    I think the new avg 8.5 is only commandline in Linux -> Tuxradar

    Probably the reason it scored 3/10

    Don't use a virus scanner.. probably should..

    Is it going to be soapbox thread?

    Why not come to the point and say it in simple words:
    DON'T USE IT.
    @sina: As if i remember correctly like your root login thread, where every one was saying "Why you need to login as root?".

    We can't type DON'T USE IT as in some time linux will also need an antivirus

    Then its my bad to use that words.
    Anyway, if you are in that love of antivirus. Then IMHO, can use klamav.
    Hope, i didn't use words, which should not be used in Linux.
