(Not sure if I am supposed to comment out other ones)
Then Installed proftpd, instructions on on first page of this thread.
I then wanted a GUI (I'm very new to linux)
gproftpd is at: http://mange.dynalias.org/linux.html
Not sure if I did the right thing but I downloaded the source.
Needed to compile it and somehow got to this page: http://www.psychocats.net/linux/installingsoftware.php
All beginners should read this, it made it really easy REALLY
End up running
sudo apt-get install build-essential
I think I then needed Development files for the GTK
So Installed libgtk2.0-dev (Development files for the GTK+ library) from Synaptic Package Manager. I hope that was the right thing to do.
I think it then compiled OK as I was able to run the GUI.
1. Installed gproftpd in Home directory (How do I stop that from happing in the future and how can I fix that now(Copy n paste)?
2. How do I run something as root. Can I add it to the menu.
3. Should I wright commands in the forums with a $ in front of them?
