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,
1sudo apt-get install curl
2curl http://apt.wxwidgets.org/key.asc | sudo apt-key add -
In the Software Manager's Edit Sources add the following:
1deb http://apt.wxwidgets.org/ natty-wx main
2deb-src http://apt.wxwidgets.org/ natty-wx main
Go back to the terminal,
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.....
