FileZilla Crashes on LinuxMint 12

On a fresh install of FileZilla on LinuxMint12 throught the Software Manager, transferring files causes FileZilla to immediately close.

Even after installing curl, wxwidgets and associated python tools and libraries through the Software Manager and Update Manager, FileZilla still crashes upon dragging files over to the server window.

Here is the solution: Linux Mint 12 causing Filezilla to crash

Apparently there is a bug? in LinuxMint12 in which FileZilla requires curl and the wxWidgets library to be installed manually through apt-get. Here are the instructions.

In a terminal,

view plain print about
1sudo apt-get install curl
2curl | sudo apt-key add -

In the Software Manager's Edit Sources add the following:

view plain print about
1deb natty-wx main
2deb-src natty-wx main

Go back to the terminal,

view plain print about
1sudo apt-get update
2sudo apt-get install python-wxgtk2.8 python-wxtools wx2.8-i18n

Hopefully, this will be fixed later, but for now.....

Fantastic. Thank you for this. It worked like a charm on my Mint12/FileZilla install.
