When I recently installed Mint 12 Lisa, I discovered I had a problem with Filezilla.
My usual method of dragging a file from the remote pane to local caused Filzilla to crash spectacularly.
My good friend Kirk over in the States discovered the cause (Filezilla requires the wxWidgets library which apparently is missing in Mint 12) and the following is the fix……
In Terminal, run the following –
sudo apt-get install curl
Follow that up with –
curl http://apt.wxwidgets.org/key.asc | sudo apt-key add -
In Software Sources (or else in Software Manager –> Edit –> Software Sources) add the following –
deb http://apt.wxwidgets.org/ natty-wx main
deb-src http://apt.wxwidgets.org/ natty-wx main
Back in Terminal, run –
sudo apt-get update
Finally run –
sudo apt-get install python-wxgtk2.8 python-wxtools wx2.8-i18n
That’s all. Filezilla should now run with no problems.
Footnote: When I originally published this, I accidentally omitted the instruction about “curl http://apt.wxwidgets.org/key.asc | sudo apt-key add -“. The fix will work without this line but it will case an irritating popup about security keys each time an Update is done. Sorry about that!
