Avast is not starting after installation.

I have Ubuntu 11.10 installed as dual boot with Windows 7 on my 64 bit PC. I installed Avast using Terminal with the below commands:

wget http://files.avast.com/files/linux/avast4workstation_1.3.0-2_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i avast4workstation_1.3.0-2_i386.debdd

And now Avast does not start after installation. I can see Avast icon. I click, but no response. I am not an expert and new to Linux. Please help.

    If you can, From from a terminal run "avast -a" and see what it gives back.
