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,
curl http://apt.wxwidgets.org/key.asc | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get install curl
In the Software Manager's Edit Sources add the following:
deb-src http://apt.wxwidgets.org/ natty-wx main
deb http://apt.wxwidgets.org/ natty-wx main
Go back to the terminal,
sudo apt-get install python-wxgtk2.8 python-wxtools wx2.8-i18n
sudo apt-get update
Hopefully, this will be fixed later, but for now.....
