Bug Description

Using Ubuntu 9.04 beta AMD64.

After installing the package "nautilus-clamscan" (0.2.2-2ubuntu1) via Synaptic, you can not scan (via right click option in Nautilus) either a single or multiple files. When selecting a file to scan the mouse cursor changes to a small rotating circle and a successful scan fails to complete. If you click on cancel, you will get a close dialog box which states:

"Anti-virus still running. Close now will abort. Are you sure?"

If you click YES, nothing happens - the scan does not abort and the window does not close. The only way to close the window and program is to click on the "X" box.

There is new nautilus-clamscan version in Ubuntu 10.10 ("Maverick"), could you test if nautilus-clamscan 0.2.2-2.1 works in Ubuntu 10.10 or newer?
If you are running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS ("Lucid"), then you can install new nautilus-clamscan 0.2.2-2.1 into Ubuntu 10.04 LTS from ppa:baltix-members repository, see:

Clamav doesn't show in context menu in 12.04 precise. Btw: Fireclam add-on for Firefox 11.0 does work.

I've installed nautilus-clamscan in 12.04 and I don't see an option to scan a drive or directory in nautilus.
