How To Install ClamTK 5.11 On Fedora And CentOS Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, ClamTK is a GTK graphical user interface for ClamAV, an antivirus program for Linux. Antiviruses are used on Linux systems to find and remove viruses that may eat Windows systems.

The latest version available is ClamTK 5.11, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:

  • Fix for clamtk.py to right-click scan files with special characters
  • Minor improvements to the Update dialog; the new benefit is one-click signature updating vice two
  • Minor updates to help documentation (PUAs)
  • Minor improvement in Update Assistant
  • Updated language files: German (de), Brazilian, Portuguese (pt_BR), Bulgarian (bg)

Because it is not available via any repository, we have to download the rpm package from the official site and install it by hand. Follow the instructions for your system exactly, in order to get a successful installation of ClamTK 5.11:
