ClamAV user permissions

Whenever I install my ready packages from one machine to another, I keep forgetting that ClamAV needs its user and group (uid=210 and gid=210), as suggested. The script will prompt you to add them as this:

groupadd -g 210 clamav

And then:

useradd -u 210 -d /dev/null -s /bin/false -g clamav clamav

I then add my user to the clamav:x:210: group in /etc/group, and proceed installing the ClamTK GUI.
