ClamTk is a frontend for ClamAV using Gtk2-perl. It is intended to beÂ an easy to use, lightweight scanner for Linux systems. It has beenÂ ported to Fedora, Debian, RedHat, openSUSE, ALT Linux, Ubuntu, CentOS,Â Gentoo, Archlinux, Mandriva, PCLinuxOS, FreeBSD, and others.
Although its earliest incarnations date to 2003, it was first uploadedÂ for distribution in 2004 to a rootshell.be account and finally to
Sourceforge.net in 2005.
ClamTk started out using the Tk libraries (thus its name). In 2005,Â this was changed to perl-Gtk2 (or Gtk2-perl, whatever). The Tk versionÂ is still available on sourceforge.net but has not been updated forÂ some time now.
RPMs for Fedora and CentOS are available from clamtk.sourceforge.net,Â and its requirements from apt and yum repos.Â Check rpmfind.net or your local packager for others. The source worksÂ just fine too, but be warned that version >= 4.00 has gotten more complexÂ and is no longer just a single script; that is, it may take a slight bitÂ of tweaking. It is actually much easier to install with package managers.
ClamTk is also available via the official Fedora yum repositories andÂ Debian/Ubuntu repositories. This is the recommended way toÂ on or using the option under “Scan”.
