i am using gproftpd

sudo apt-get install gproftpd.
its a graphical interface to proftpd. Goes a great job if your not wanting to do alot of CLI stuff.

You can change init states with init command. For getting GUI on Ubuntu you should run it on runlevel 2.

man runlevel should give you more info.

You should be able to check it with runlevel command. And then switch back to it.
But why do you need a GUI for setting up a ftp server. It is much simpler than most of the servers. You could set it up using vsftpd config files. Theres only one for it and quite a self explanatory one.
Here is one link http://vsftpd.beasts.org/vsftpd_conf.html
