Looking for FileZilla


I am running Fedora 20 and Mint 16,but cannot find FileZilla. It is not listed in the applications menu.
I tried to find a place where I can download it and have tried www.filezilla.org but found an invalid pointer.

Where can I find it for both distro's.

gFtp is a good ftp program, and is easily available for every distro.

Filezilla

Great thanks a lot I have it working now.

I still do not have it working from an ikon though, I started it from
the Konsule. How do I make an ikon to start it?

That depends on your desktop environment--they can vary in such details. Which DE are you using?

You can make an ikon on the desctop and klick that to ctart. To do that type the following in a text editor and save it as Filezilla.desktop on your desctop:

Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Name=Filezilla
Exec=filezilla
Icon=file-manager
Now all you have to do is to klick this ikon. K.
