to scan the home directory (in the terminal)
Code:
clamscan /home
Or do a clamscan driveletterhere
(put your drive letter instead of the above).
I don't know what you're using it for, but just to scan the Ubuntu installation really isn't necessary.

to update, do this:
Code:
freshclam
Well, I'm actually not sure how to do a total scan with clamav because I don't have it installed to test. But you could try putting hd0 instead of the drive letter. (If you have only one harddrive).
