I am trying to enable the apparmor profile for firefox, but when i enter

sudo aa-enforce /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.firefox 

i get a aa-enforce command not found message.

apparmor_status indicates apparmor is running with 20 profiles loaded.

any ideas? it's Ubuntu 14.04 & i just installed it

  • Have you installed the package apparmor-profiles ?

  • no, i didn't think this is required - usr.bin.firefox is already in the apparmor profiles folder

/usr/sbin/aa-enforce is part of the package apparmor-utils, which isn't installed per default.

Therefore install the package with

sudo apt-get install apparmor-utils

    thanks Fabby - that did the trick. I didn't see this requirement anywhere in the documentation - would have thought it would be here help.ubuntu.com/community/AppArmor in the installation section
