Regarding your Bug Summary and Bug Description, "I cannot open McAfee from Ubuntu to run a virus scan" if you are attempting to use the Windows variant (*.exe) you would want to use WINE ->
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/wine1.4
https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+archive/ppa/+packages

If you are attempting to use the linux version as per http://www.mcafee.com/us/products/virusscan-enterprise-for-linux.aspx you would want to contact McAfee for support. If it is determined to be an issue with Ubuntu, not with the software itself, please feel free to report back to this question in the Support Tracker and we may take it from there.

Can you help with this problem?
