Lynis - Security auditing and hardening tool, for UNIX-based systems. Lynis is a security auditing tool for systems based on UNIX like Linux, macOS, BSD, and others. It performs an in-depth security scan and runs on the system itself. The primary goal is to test security defenses and provide tips for further system hardening. It will also scan for general system information, vulnerable software packages, and possible configuration issues. Lynis was commonly used by system administrators and auditors to assess the security defenses of their systems. Besides the "blue team," nowadays penetration testers also have Lynis in their toolkit. We believe software should be simple, updated on a regular basis, and open. You should be able to trust, understand, and have the option to change the software. Many agree with us, as the software is being used by thousands every day to protect their systems.

            Tkinter Button runs program in background and allows user input
            Asked 2020-Apr-03 at 10:59

            Sorry if the title is not accurate to what I am trying to do. It was the best way of explaining my problem at the time.

            Okay so on to my problem:

            I am trying to create a Tkinter program that when a button is clicked a program that I have created will run in the background and will not stop the user from using the Tkinter program. (Sorry, I really hope you understand this) The closest thing I can think of, that is doing something similar to what I am trying to do, is when you click the "scan this computer" on your anti-malware. It runs the scan but still allows the user to click cancel and go about the program if they want. I am able to get the program to run the command but every time it focuses all of its' attention on the scan and I (the user) can no longer browse about the program.

            I have tried using multi-threading but I cant tell if I am supposed to use that for the program or if I am supposed to use multi-processing, I don't know.

            (I don't know if when you paste all of this into a file if it will work or not) I will try to post as much of the code as possible:

            Main Script ...

            Instead of using root.mainloop(), add the root.update() in your main function, inside the main loop if there is one. Hope that's helpful!
