I'm running a fresh 64-bit install of Ubuntu 10.04. I no longer have a System->Preferences->Removable Drives and Media option in my menus, and need to re-configure it (I had set it to "Do Nothing" and "Always do this action" sometime in the past, but now I want to change it)I have right-clicked my menu, went to edit, and made sure it wasn't un-checked)Has the "Removable Drives and Media" option been moved somewhere else in 10.04?
I'm quite new to Ubuntu and I am running Ubuntu Studio 10.04 . I have just installed Klam AV and had it scan my computer . I was surprised to find that it had found two 'viruses' . I don't know if anyone can help me in finding out if they are real or only false positives . The following is the output that I received .
Name of File /usr/src/fglrx-8.723.1/libfglrx_ip.a.GCC3 and GCC4 Name of Problem Heuristics.Broken.Executable Status Loose
I have Avast Antivirus installed in Ubuntu 10.10. There are options to select folders to scan from 1. Home Directory 2. Entire system and 3. Selected folders. What are the options available to scan only selected drive. OR How to scan only USB stick.
I've just partitioned my hard drive with GParted so that I have space to install and run Windows OS based programmes such as Monkey Island (wine simply won't work) and other PC games. I have the Windows XP SP2 Installation CD but my OS (Intrepid Ibex) won't allow me to autorun the CD and proceed to installation.
Now having hunted around the net little, it seems the answer is System->Preferences->Removable Drives and Media. Problem is, I don't have a Removable Drives and Media option on this menu. Is there a workaround for this? E.g., is there a way of using the Terminal to enable autorun, or is there another way I can do this?As I'm pretty new to this thing, feel free to use short words and detailed explanations.
I use my ubuntu laptop at work and connect a lot of usb pen drives to my computer. Everyone else I work with use windows and I want to make sure that the usb pen drives don't contain any windows viruses so I don't spread them. The best way for this to be done would be to have the USB pen drives automatically scanned with they are inserted in my ubuntu machine. How to do this?
I know that there is little need for me to install an anti-virus etc - but - I was thinking, it is a good idea to scan folders and files that I send to colleagues that run windows.Whats the best way and programme to do this? I guess I simply install an AV programme and thats it!
Through some recent update, which one I am not sure, my system no longer responds to removable media such as flash drives and insertions of DVD/CD disks. Whereas before, for instance, if I inserted a USB flash drive, the "Device Notifier" would pop up, tell me that a new device had been detected, and ask me what I wanted to do with it, now nothing. "My Computer" (sysinfo:/)does not update either. The kernel knows the device is there, since I can see it when I do "lsusb". OpenSuSE x86_64 11.2.
I have been told that some virus scanners for linux (including but not limited to AVG, Antivira, clamAV, others) are available to ubuntu. My question is which of these still CURRENTLY support detection of WINDOWS viruses in addition to linux viruses. I would like to boot the Ubuntu live jump drive I have to scan windows machines and at least detect viruses, dont really need to repair. who knows which virus scanners compatible with ubuntu that will detect windows viruses as well
I have a Cent OS dedicated server, not sure what version though as I'm new to Linux. How do I find out what version I have? Is there an anti virus or security package that I can install on my server which can use Cron Jobs to do a scan every 12 hours.
I run a system that users may log into either remotely or physically. Multiple users may be logged in simultaneously because of the remote access, but only one user can be physically logged in at a time.With the current setup, however, if the physical user inserts a flash drive (which the OS mounts automatically) then the remote users gain access to the removable media.

I recently put Linux back on my laptop (Vector) and I am trying to get any of the media players on it to recognize and play the music on my desktop, which is running Windows 7 Ultimate with WMP streaming music over my wireless network. I was wondering if this can be done, or if these features have yet, if ever, to be implemented.
klamav KDE doesn't work. It won't download updates. So, I want to make a one-click scan. I'v been using shell installers from nvidia. I know the sequence I use in the terminal to get it running. There should be way to do this from the desktop.
I am brand new to Linux.I was wondering if there is an anti-virus software that runs under Linux (Ubuntu Live), that can scan Windows files and get rid of the viruses?I ask this as I had a trojan that was detected, but could not be deleted under Windows; I had to us Ubuntu live to delete it, which seemed to have worked.
So right now I am dual booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu.Today, my landlord asked me for help because his machine is filled with virues. So first thing I did was throw it onto one of my spare sata drives and tried to clean it in windows. Got a torjan that for some reason, MS essentials wasnt able to remove. So I am now in Ubuntu trying to remove it with KlamAV, however, KlamAV doesn't seem to spot the same file right now.
So my question is, is there another good virus scanner that works? I tried AVG but it seems they don't support linux anymore, just linux server.
I installed F14 on a friend's computer a couple of weeks ago. Today she called me saying that her ISP called her telling her they'd have to cancel her internet if she didn't fix whatever virus was sending port scans to edu domains that they'd gotten complaints from. I thought "well, there's a first"... I've got ssh to her computer, so i shelled in and ran a couple of commands, but i really know very little about how to investigate this kind of stuff.
She's directly connected to her cable modem via cat-5; but she does have a wireless card installed --she just doesn't use it, nor a router, afaik, nor as far as i'd seen when i setup her printer. I googled a bit, and ran a couple of commands, and 1 of them was interesting because it APPEARS that her wireless card is ON and the eth0 is OFF? Perhaps someone will know how to read this output better than i, and the output of the other command that i ran. Also, does anyone know any other ways to properly investigate this one? FWIW, she does use transmission to download torrents.
Anyway, here's the commands i ran: Code: [root@localhost ~]# ip link show 1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00.
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UNKNOWN qlen 1000 link/ether 00:21:97:9b:70:29 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
3: wlan0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state DOWN qlen 1000 link/ether 00:1e:e5:9c:b6:8a brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff [root@localhost ~]#
i downloaded and installed ubuntu 8.1 and when i pop in a cd it tells me that it cannot find autorun. i seem to be missing the removable drives and media tab which i'm told should be located under system/preferances.
I am trying to find a PCI compliant anti-virus that will scan uploads automatically for the debian lenny operating system. We are running the OS as a server with kernel 2.6.24 I am trying to avoid ClamAV as it is a pretty big system hog.
I just picked up a second hand printer/scanner for free cuz I fixed it (which wasn't a lot of work). It works perfectly over wifi except that simple scan doesnt pick it up. I would just use a cable but we don't have an extra one and I don't get paid until friday. Anyway to get simple scan to work over wireless? The printer is an HP Photosmart C7280 all in one.
I have a dual boot computer. The WindowsXP "side" has been infected with a rootkit virus. So far UBUNTU has not been affected to my knowledge. I have not yet removed the virus from the WindowsXP "side". I am thinking of deleting the NTFS partition and have the computer fully dedicated to UBUNTU. Now for my question. Is there a possibility that the virus resides in the MBR and that I need to "rebuild" the MBR to actually remove the virus?
Even more extreme, should I totally re-install UBUNTU in the name of safety and precaution.
I use Ubuntu 10.04, and whenever I insert media into a removable media drive, it does not come up on my desktop automatically. I need to go to Computer, then to the drive. It then appears on my desktop. Is there any way to make the device automatically appear? This problem occurs for any removable media. I am using Ubuntu 10.04.
(Ubuntu 10.10, Unity desktop)How can I configure Ubuntu to launch gtkpod when I connect my iPod? It's currently launching Rhythmbox. I can't find anything about removable media in Unity's Toolbar > Applications
I'm using a scanner with Fedora. However, linux does something that is undesirable; It turns off the scanner light, everytime it does a scan, which the HP software, which comes for windows, doesn't do. The result? The light never warms up enough and all the images come with a blue tone on them. Only after using the scanner a few times, the light warms up enough and the images start getting their true colour.The question is, can I somehow force the light to stay on, even during scans, like it happens when I am using Windows? Or not? Anyone has ideas?
wasn't quite sure how to search for this the question always seemed to be too long and i'd get nothing related to my problem. its not a huge problem, but if i could fix it, that's be awesome
there's websites, such as videos, that i can't choose anything in the actual media player... to be more specific, it plays just fine, but it i wanted to pause, turn down the volume, rewind, or skip ahead, nothing happens, it acts as though i'm not clicking on anything. i guess its not a big deal, but just a little annoyance.
I went through and downloaded quite a few different media players, looking for one that would play this DVD. Well, I finally found one that worked, but now I can't remember which one it is, so I don't know which ones to remove. I want a media player that allows me to watch DVD's, listen to MP3/4's, watch all different types of movie files, make play lists, etc. Here's the list of what I have installed:
Amarok Banshee Dragon Player Freevo Kaffeine Movie Player Movie Player Totem (xine backend) Rhythmbox VLC Media Player
So, which ones can I get rid of, and which one(s) should I keep?
