    Default rkhunter

    Would there by any chance be a gui for rkhunter. I am finding terminal for this program a whole lot difficult.

    Unfortunately none seems to exist and since it's a 3rd party tool (meaning not made by SUSE people or even contributors here or OBS) there's not much we can do about it unless someone wants to take up the torch and create one from scratch (with modern toolkits it shouldn't be that big of a mission but still..)

    I find the rkhunter usage not very difficult.
    I usually install it just after OS Installation. Than launch it some times so:

    rkhunter --versioncheck
    rkhunter --update
    rkhunter --propupd
    rkhunter -c --rwo --sk --lang de

    Then I suppose it runs in background

    More difficult I find:
    a) hot to get the output as email
    b) to interpret the its output

    Naturally but rkhunter is not made by SUSE personnel or anyone related to it, it's made by a 3rd party development team.

    It's just packaged for openSUSE, much like it is packaged for Ubuntu, RedHat etc.

    what do these commands do....
    rkhunter --propupd
    rkhunter -c --rwo --sk --lang de

    is there any way to make this do a manual scan?

    Doesn't it come with a man page
    Code:
    man rkhunter

    I keep getting "permissions denied" the sudo command fixes that, but then I get commands not found.

    Im going to learn how to use this program yet..

    Please do not (only) tell stories, but copy/paste what you do and see (the prompt, the command, the output and the next prompt) from your terminal emulation window in your post between CODE tags. You get the CODE tags by clicking on the # button in the tool bar of the post editor.

    There is then far less to explain by you because we can all see exactly what you did and what you got.

    And to "become root" in the terminal, you can do
    Code:
    su -
    mind the - there.
