After Installation of Comodo I get the message “Filesystem filter driver is not loaded!”. I click Run Diagnostics and give root permission. The photo attached is the message I get. I do what it says in a root terminal. Once I’m done I get the same message. I try again a few more times and still no luck. Please help me!
For those having trouble with Installing and configuring Comodo AV for Linux
Make sure you have the right distro(Ubuntu or Mint) and the right Arc (32 or 64 Bit)
Run ‘/opt/COMODO/post_setup.sh’(As Root sudo)
You will get a File system driver not installed.
You will need this driver http://http://www.bondoffamily-net.com/~kinta-chan/techknow/Linux/RedirFS/src/driver.tar
Now Move that file you downloaded To /opt/COMODO/ as root.
Replacing the old driver!!
You can do this by opening a terminal, type in:
You will be asked for your password, then a GUI interface opens that is actually a root user file manger. Copy the downloaded file and paste it into:
Was having the same problem but was leery about downloading an unofficial patch so downloaded the 4 Eicar tests and reran the system scan and it picked up all four of them. Kudos to the Comodo team! So as long as it works I’ll take Gold-finger’s advice and stay away from anything that doesn’t come from the Comodo team! Sooooo…Who cares if it says the file system filter driver is not loaded…if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!!
hi ScribDude, I noticed your reply to this issue and I am experiencing the same problem. You mentioned “downloaded the 4 Eicar tests and reran the system scan and it picked up all four of them.”
I have just installed Lubuntu 14.04 on my old laptop Compaq nx6125 and I am experiencing exactly the same problem.
Can you explain to me how you did this so i can have a go myself. I’m a newbie to linux so if you could explain step-by-step I can follow your method. I can use a terminal window but need the correct syntax as I’m still learning how to use linux.
Any help would be appreciated
NOTE: I’m not sure best practice on these forums, should I create a new post with my issue or is it ok to ask questions on this post? Thanks for any help advise.
Here I have written the steps, which Users of Ubuntu or even ubuntu-based Systems have to take to install COMODO AntiVirus properly and what you have to do, if COMODO stopps working, when a fresh Ubuntukernel arrives.
I am working with Ubuntu and ubuntu-based systems since years already.
