graphical front-end for ClamAV
  20 reviews

ClamTk is a graphical front-end for Clam Antivirus.

It is designed to be an easy-to-use, lightweight, on-demand antivirus scanner for Linux systems.

Context menu support for KDE's Plasma Desktop (Dolphin file manager) and Nemo and Thunar sendto is included. Context menu support for GNOME (Nautilus file manager), but due to additional dependencies required, it is in a separate package: clamtk-gnome.

Hi. Works but I found this note today when I checked the gitlab site: Note: This program is no longer maintained. This was added on 20240402 so I do not know how serious this is. If true, clamtk is a dead program.

I'll remove any doubts about this working. My very first scan I found the Exploit.CVE virus in the Mozilla folder on my Linux Mint machine. Firefox is gone, ClamTK is here to stay. Easy program to use. Love it!

Simple. Working fine to scan a file or a directory.

Yes, you have to scan files yourself... no "constant security sweeps" etc., which is perfectly fine for me. It seems to work (? no idea, actually) and this GUI extension is actually comfortable and stable. Good job, thank you :)

Does not schedule, does not update, does not scan, I don't know what it actually does.

Excelente antivirus para analizar unidades, pero no tiene scan en tiempo real o para seleccionar la memoria del sistema, ideal para buscar malware en los archivos cuando otras soluciones no funcionan o el pc anda mal, como opcion de respaldo. Muy buen antivirus, desactivar la opcion de pup (potentially unwanted program, programas no deseados), para evitar demasiados falsos positivos, como activar las otras opciones para un mejor analisis. El analisis lleva mucho tiempo, pero se obtiene buenos resultados.Obten la ultima version /6.02/, bajandote el paquete de instalacion para Debian/Ubuntu desde la pagina web, link *get the last version here*

I have only been using ClamTK for about a month. Seems to be working fine. Current version as of 11/09/2019 is Version 6.02 dated 20190919. GUI frontend has changed, too.

The version available through the command line install interface is ClamTk 5.20" - the version through this softwre installation manager is 5.20-1. The AV manager is clunky but effective enough. The developer (Dave M and Tor D) maintain a github page where more recent versions (such as 5.25) reside but it seems that the main development system died and there is no ongoing work on the system as of May 2018.

Out of date software. The version is 0.98.7 and the recommended version is 0.99.1. Although threre are not many linux viruses in the wild, it is respectful to the community to ensure that you don't spread viruses, even if they are for Windows.
