    I visited the downloadpage after getting the key in my mail
    My processorven sounded all the time as loud as never before.
    Nothing happened further.
    Then I openened the terminal and typed:
    cd ~/Desktop
    No such sirectory
    Then I typed:
    sudo sh
    No such command
    So, as often with Linux: to complicated for a normal user.

    I want to download Bit defender for Mint Nadia. On the download page of Bit defender, there are so many files and i do no know which one should i download. Would you please let me know which file should i download. My Pc is 64 bit (intel) and Mint Nadia is installed on it.

    Should i download amd64 debian or i358 debian file?


    1. Manikandan

      i586 will run on all including the x86_64 Intel and AMD processors.
      x86_64 will run only on x86_64 architecture.
      Try i586 deb first.

    Plz Note the file size is 40 MB
    download to desktop.
    type in terminal

    cd ~/Desktop

    hit enter and then type below code or copy paste from here(only from this comment not from post)

    sudo sh

    Note:check the downloaded file version (for me 7.6-4)
    and follow the rest

    Ok downloaded text file to desktop,all ok when I type in cd ~/Desktop, but when I add sudo sh and type my password, I first get the message
    ‘Sorry, try again.’ I type the same password and then get the message ‘sh: Can’t open’

    It seems that I am unable to run a ‘sudo sh’ command. Is this a password issue? or should I be doing something to enable the use of ‘sudo sh’?

    I am relatively new to using the terminal so any advice would be appreciated. Thanks…

    I am trying to download BitDefender, I received the license key and clicked on the link in the email. I browsed to the Linux folder and clicked on the file, but it just changes the browser to show the code, I don’t think it is downloading. What should I see after clicking on the .deb file?

    1. admin

      follow the steps carefully
