how to run rkhunter ?

Asked by David Hogan on 2011-06-28

I installed "rkhunter" from the Ubuntu software centre and now I can't find how to run the application. It doesn't appear in "files and folders" nor in "applications". It does appear in Synaptic but I can't run it from there.

rkhunter is a terminal applications you will not find any item menu to click...

So open a terminal ctrl + alt + t and read:
