After checking other posts, I understand that root as a user is not available in ubuntu. You have to use sudo for everything. Is that true? If so, I do I do rooty things like modify config files, create root cron entries, or install programs? I've been using unixes for 30 years, but I'm new to ubuntu.
My immediate issue at hand is that I want to install clamav in this system. The clamav website http://www.clamav.net/lang/en/download/packages/packages-linux/
says clamav is shipped with ubuntu. I can't tell if it is installed (sudo clamav doesn't find the executable), and I'm not sure how to install and run it w/o being root.
need a little help!
