First, download the tarball from Frisk Software. Once you have the tarball just unpack it and run the installer.
~$ cd Desktop
~$ tar zxvf fp-Linux-i686-ws.tar.gz
~$ cd f-prot
~$ sudo ./install-f-prot.pl
Follow the instructions presented during the installation. Simply use the default settings offered, and all should be well. After installation is complete, virus scanning is a simple console command away:
Note: Do not delete the folder extracted earlier since it is still needed by F-Prot.
~$ sudo fpscan --disinfect /mount/point
Replace /mount/point with the desired mount point (usually /media/disk) to scan. If you have multiple partitions on a single device, you can use wildcards (/media/*) to scan all of them.
By default, a update task will be created but if you don't boot the LiveUSB regularly then things might not always be up-to-date. To manually update the virus definitions run the following from console:
~$ sudo /opt/f-prot/fpupdate
