If you are looking for an excellent Gnome-based FTP client for Ubuntu, take a close look at the Filezilla, a free, open-source, GNU General Public License FTP client software.
FileZilla is a fast and reliable cross-platform FTP, FTPS and SFTP client, with lots of useful features and an intuitive interface.

Installing Filezilla in Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron)
sudo apt-get install filezilla
Finally, here’s an interview with Tim Kosse, the lead developer of the Filezilla project.
I love filezilla man. Best free ftp client available and may be the best ftp client period. IMO
Brett, the Linux version is pretty good, too. I prefer Filezilla over GFTP.
THats what Im looking for
How do I install FIleZilla? I am new to Ubuntu linux.
There are two ways of installing Filezilla in Ubuntu.
1. From the terminal:
#sudo apt-get install filezilla
2. From the GUI using Synaptic Package Manager
From the Menu – System – Administration – Synaptic Package Manager.
Search for `Filezilla` and right-click to `Mark for Installation.`
If you are new to Ubuntu, use the GUI.
Hope that helps!
thanks for this, saved me 🙂
How I can configure FileZilla through Proxy Server?
On Ubuntu filezilla work good, but on Windows Trojan steal password from Filezilla.
If Trojans are stealing your passwords, you have greater issues than Filezilla. I find the security features of this program scalable and reliable, provided they are on a properly secured computer to begin with. Don’t mistake OS specific vulnerabilities with flaws in this software.
This tool ROCKS, love it much.
