Hello Linux Geeksters. As you already know, FileZilla 3.7.11 has been released a few days ago. FileZilla is a good, open-source FTP client, with support for FTP, SFTP, FTPS. It is also multi-platform, so it can be used on Linux, Windows, Mac or BSD.
In this article I will show you how to install Filezilla 188.8.131.52 on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Linux Mint 15 Olivia and Linux Mint 14 Nadia.
Actually, Filezilla does not need to be installed, all you have to do is download the archive, extract it, set the x permissions and execute the filezilla binary, like this:
After you have downloaded the Filezilla archive, do this:
$ tar -xjvf FileZilla_184.108.40.206_*-linux-gnu.tar.bz2
$ cd FileZilla3/bin
$ sudo chmod +x filezilla
If installing Filezilla 3.7.11 gives you dependency issues, you can easilly install FileZilla 220.127.116.11 via PPA. It is not the latest version available, but it is close. And better than nothing:
$ sudo add-apt-repository muench/programs-ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install filezilla
