    Graphical FTP


    Brand new user, here. Does Xandros Business package have an FTP program with a GUI? If not, can you recommend one? I need it to upload files to my web sites. Thanks for any help.

    I can recommend gFTP, I've never used Xandro sbut I suppose you can install if from a Debian .deb with dpkg or maybe it is in Xandros' repos

    Agreed... gFTP is very easy to use and you should be able to install it on Xandros.

    Thanks for the tip. I did find nVu, which is a simple htm editor with an FTP capability but it isn't very impressive. I'll go looking for gFTP. Thanks again.

    As a note, I couldn't get gFTP to install for lack of a number of dependent files. I'm going through the hundreds and hundreds of listings on the Debian site to see if something will work for me. If I find it, I'll post it.

    The one we use in our business on a daily basis and has never failed us for years is Krusader. I consider it to be one of most inexpendable Linux apps.

    If you are using KDE and just looking for simple file transfer, you can always just use Konqueror (your file manager). It won't give you quite the features of a dedicated ftp program like gFTP but it does help with simple uploads and downloads.

    Does Xandros include apt-get?

    It does but it appears as if it has the potential to break the system if outside sources are used.

    I'm not familiar with Xandros but does it's own package management system not have some sort of ftp program?

    Nope. It has just the two mentioned above. Nothing in a full featured, gui driven ftp program. I can't find anything on the Debian web site either. I guess I'll continue to use one of the Windows machines for that purpose. So far, Linux hasn't proven to be very useful for our business. I think it's fine for a home user but it simply doesn't have critical software like accounting, UPS Worldship etc. The Crossover program only runs a few outdated software packages. It won't run any of the packages we use on a daily bases. It accesses the internet just fine but, so far, hasn't been able to provide any of the basics our business needs. I'm not willing to use Microsoft Vista and I want some solutions before they stop supporting XP. I might have to end up with a Mac for everything other than UPS. Microsoft has a true strangle hold on the industry, doesn't it?
