Installing Bitdefender for Unices on GNU linux

For use In Manjaro linux Arch and other linux versions an other way to install Bitdefender for Unices.
For some people who have problems to give this issue a try and will try to do another way to install bitdefender DO not use the AUR install on Arch or Manjaro deb for debian and rpm or other. but execute as described below.


will giving a list with the installation file of your choice for your system with a download with the .run extension the virusscannerfiles you look at are old but the updates are frequently daily and active.
Open a console as a normal user cd go to your ~/home/Downloads directory(place where you have saved your file ) and do a $ sudo sh [and fill here the downloaded bitdefender file with .run extension]
for example : $ sudo sh Bitdefender-Antivirus-Scanner-7.7-1-linux-amd64.ipk.run there will come an popup for agreements and at the end you fill the word 'accept'
and enter then Bitdefender comes up and averything should work without problems then get the free license key bitdefender for Unices is also without problems
Today a have done it in Manjaro linux without any starting problem/issue the GUI is working out of the box. have had no startup errors or strange behaviors , bevor i tried by installing
using AUR but that gives the same kind of issues as on older issues described by several GNU linux distro..
