Download and Install in Ubuntu Or Linux Mint

 FileZilla can be installed from Software manager but that is an older version (3.7.1).

It will download a tarball that you will extract all the files to install.

  • 32-bit system download the “FileZilla_x.x.x_i586-linux-gnu.tar.bz2″
  • 64-bit system download the “FileZilla_x.x.x_x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.bz2″

You can extract it using Archive Manager or with the terminal.

Before you pass following commands make sure you are in the directory where you’ve downloaded FileZilla tarball.

$ sudo tar jvxf FileZilla_*-linux-gnu.tar.bz2
In the above command replace the file name with your tarball.
  • After you extract files change the file ownership.
$ sudo chown -R root:root FileZill*
  • Now move to bin directory inside FileZilla extracted folder and launch FileZilla client.
$ ./filezilla

Done! It will launch FileZilla latest version.

Did you see dependencies error? I did not find the dependencies that it says in error but the following worked!

$ sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386

When libraries installation completes, fun ./filezilla command. Now it should work.
