    Don't do much with ftp, but konqueror manages it well. But in the past I have used Filezilla

    I use Filezilla (V3.3.1) which is available on the OpenSuse network repository. It does all I need it to.

    Filezilla (it actually has a GTK interface but works fine under KDE)

    my needs for a ftp client are sporatic, so in the midst of one furious weekend of finding things i installed an extension for firefox called FireFTP.

    Very surprising and useful applet, from the Tools menu it creates a new tab with a ftpclient interface and works very very well.

    Now it's all i use for ftp... just works.

    I just tend to use dolphin.

    I split the view and then open the ftp server in the right hand pane and /home in the left.

    Copying stuff backwards and forwards is simply done by dragging and dropping.

    Any sites that I need to access on a regular basis are put into the places panel with passwords saved.

    Just seems to keep it simpler than using an additional app.

    Question Re: Looking for a graphical FTP Client for KDE

    Having problems with all these methods.
    didn't try fire ftp yet.

    last time I did this easily through windows

    with konqueror,dolphin and filezilla I get in after enterin user name and password then when I try to open the xboxs e drive it disconnects me. gotta try fire ftp later
    hope i don't have to use abc in a vm like last time.

    I know the xbox uses ftp not sftp could that be the problem?

    I actually use FTP fairly heavily in my job, and I have used every solution mentioned thus far (FireFTP, Konqueror, Dolphin, gFTP) and a number of others (KFTPGrabber, KBear, etc). Overall, my choice is FileZilla.

    FileZilla is multi-platform, so it runs on Linux, Windows and Mac (a plus in my book). Of all the Linux FTP apps I have used, FileZilla has been the most dependable and the most flexible.

    Now, if you are looking for a browser-based solution that works on multiple platforms, FireFTP also does a great job. But I prefer a standalone application because of the volume of FTP that I do.

    I also use KDE on the desktop, and FileZilla fits in just fine, in my opinion. Nice app.
