Thanks for seeking support in effort to help get better acquainted with Ubuntu and security applications. Please make sure you I have moved this question out of the Spreadbuntu project. If you would like to use LaunchPad to ask similar general questions please visit: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu and ask your question here. If someone in the support realm wants to re-assign to a specific project they will move it for you.

Thanks again!
