Thread: easiest GUI FTP for KDE ?

  1. #1

    Default easiest GUI FTP for KDE ?

    I simply cannot get filezilla to work.
    It wont even pass its own test, yet on a friends mac, 'fetch' works fine.
    I need an FTP program for my Linux machine (OpenSuse KDE).

    Could someone please recommend one that I can get with YAST ?
    I just need to access a remote host to upload some files for a site.

    Thanks!

    I use Gftp, its gnome based but works fine under KDE too.
    You can install it from YaST with additional libraries for gnome.

    BTW, what is problem with filezilla. Any errors?

    I'm afraid I am not advanced enough to download libraries.
    I am a click and install user, rather unfortunately
    I wouldnt know how to install a Gnome app with libraries on kde.

    Filezilla just refuses to work.
    It always says connection time out, no matter what config I tried, passive, active...etc... 4 days now.
    it doesnt seem to like my router maybe??

    I even tried it on a windose pc, same problem.

    No, it will by default select which lib to install.
    You just choose gftp to install in software management.
    That's it.

    Maybe you have firewall issues?

    I'll give it a try.
    If it was FW issues, I dont understand how the mac was able to work without problems, as well as dreamweaver etc..

    Some people (I have heard) use dolphin for FTP, but I have no idea how to do that.
    I got as far as it connecting and not able to read anything because I dont know where I should enter the login info.

    for a GUI way, i find the FireFTP add-on for Firefox so easy i can't
    be bothered to look for another way

    check it out: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/684

    on the other hand, you wrote: "I wouldnt know how to install a Gnome
    app with libraries on kde." which is not a problem, just open YaST, go
    Software Management, search on gftp and select to install it....and,
    wait a second back because YaST does all the hard parts of deciding
    what libs you need and will pop up a (probably long) list of things
    that must be installed in order for you to run a Gnome app in KDE..

    and, it will ask you if that ok...just click yes and you are an
    instant Linux Wizard.

    on the THIRD hand, the first responder to any question here may or may
    *not* have the right answer for _you_....for example the answer came
    from a Gnome user, but you are a KDE user, so _maybe_ you would be
    real happy with KFTPgrabber <http://www.kftp.org/> which *is*
    available via YaST or http://software.opensuse.org/search
    [and it should install a lot less new supporting stuff]

    i've never tried it, i just find the FF thing too easy for fast needs
    and wget perfect for all other needs

    I cant find any of those programs...
    I dont understand what I am doing wrong.
    the repos I jave (since I cant seem to be able to upload a pic in the post directly) are:

    opensuse 11.1 update
    packman-rpms
    opensuse 11.1-0
    Main repository Index of /source/distribution/11.1/repo/oss

    4 more opensuse
    debug
    non-oss
    oss
    source

    Should I add/remove something in order to have access to the FTP programs mentioned above?
    Thanks.

    ok, I downloaded kftp from the link and it was installed.
    It looks great.
    However...
    it is stuck at 'establishing data connection', which points to some problem that I cant place my finger on.
    If it was a firewall problem from my side, it wouldnt have made it passed the login to the server right?
    What could it be?

    If you have this repo, which i think you have in form of main repository:
    Index of /source/distribution/11.1/repo/oss/suse/src

    You will get gftp from it. Search it in YaST.

    Alternative is here, which is one click install:
    Software.openSUSE.org

    Best of luck.

    kftp should work. From all sided this looks like a firewall problem. Turn it off in Yast and try again.
