CLAM-REMOVING VIRUS PROGRAMS IN LINUX

Hai friend…..I wish all of them had a nice start of the week…….

Today I thought of saying simple but a powerful tool which is none other than “CLAM”

The clam is a open source software which is used to remove the virus files that affect the windows

operating systems…..

The clam are used to remove these types of files from the NTFS file systems from linux OSes……….

The clam is available in both command line and gtk i.e. GUI version that can be installed

in our linux systems and used a like other packages………….

I think this would help you for sorting the problem of viruses…….

SAY NO TO VIRUSes………

ZENITY command IN LINUX

Some of the commands in linux i thought it will be useful for some utility purposes……………………

zenity-

It is a command in linux which opens a gtk i.e. window which can be used for displaying a info or a warning messages or to get an status from the user.This can be done by using various arguments of zentiy like

–info   for displaying a info window to the user.

–warning for displaying a warning message to the user.

–text it is used to specify the text that is to be printed in the window

and many of them are available like –calendar for getting a calendar etc

Some of the other arguments can be added for header text and size of the window which can be little essential and when needed can be got from the manual pages of zenity…………………………………

Some commands for pdf files

hai………………

I have used these commands for the purpose of conversion of pdf and ps files and the commands are

1) ps2pdf  source  destination

Type the command ps2pdf in the terminal with the source and the destination file names

Here the source file must be .ps file i.e post Script file and the destination be the pdf which is to be created

This is used to convert the .ps file into pdf files.

2)pdftops source destination

Type the command pdftops in the terminal with the source and the destination file names

Here the source file must be .pdf file and the destination be the .ps file  i.e post Script file.

This is used to convert the .pdf file into ps files

 3)pdf2txt source destination

This is used to convert the pdf files into the .txt files.

4)pdftoppm source destination

This is used to convert the pdf file into the ppm file which is an image file and can be viewed in an image viewer.
