Install BitDefender Antivirus Scanner in Ubuntu 12.10 & 12.04

I think Ubuntu Linux itself doesn’t need an antivirus software. But you can scan removable devices or Windows partitions in Ubuntu system using an antivirus scanner. This tutorial is going to show you how to install BitDefender Antivirus Scanner in Ubuntu from the official deb repository.

First, hit Ctrl+Alt+T to launch a terminal window. Then run this command to add the BitDefender repository key to the list of apt trusted keys:
wget -O- -q
/deb/bd.key.asc | sudo apt-key add -

Run this command to add BitDefender repository:
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb
repos/deb/bitdefender non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'

Now, do update:
sudo apt-get update
Install BitDefender Antivirus Scanner:
sudo apt-get install bitdefender-scanner-gui

Once installed, you can launch it at next login.
