    Default What alternative is recommended to "FileZilla' by users. Graphical FTP client wanted.

    2071229. I am now running mostly on OpenSUSE, but I note comments on 'FileZilla' [Which I used on Windows] and that software manager shows an old version. What FTP client of graphical type do users recommend?

    Hi
    Well old only as in features... that's the way Leap rolls, security/bug fixes only (looks like the newer version won't build anyway due to library dependencies).

    What desktop environment, on GNOME I just use Nautilus and sftp.

    For KDE, the Dolphin file manager supports FTP/SFTP.

    Well, it's been a long time since I've been using the MC for FTP/SFTP.

    And, more importantly these days, Dolphin integrates with KDE Connect -- the most comfortable way to access the files on your (not so) "smart telephone".

    Yes, very important for those that need that kind of access.

    Hmmm. Ages back, I tried KDE Connect, did not work for me, and I did not at the time feel like hunting down why, because ...

    I have been using Paul Lutus' SSHelper all along, wireless connect my Android to my router and use ssh and sshfs for everything I can dream of doing between my Android and my PCs and Laptops.

    Super slick, so KDE Connect (along with most other KDE stuff, lately) is not so important for me.
