    Yep, scp. Something like this:
    Code:
    scp username@server:/home/username/filename /localDirectory
    Or to make it really easy, open up Konqueror and use fish to log into the server. Then drag&drop or graphically copy and paste into a local folder.
    In Konqueror's address bar:
    Code:
    fish:username@server
    Thanks to TechieMoe for that gem!

    Yes fish is great, but it's more like :
    Code:
    fish://username@server
