Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak comes with both built-in SFTP and FTP clients, but if you find yourself working with file uploads a great deal, you might prefer to switch to a graphical FTP client for ease of use. Fortunately, the popular FileZilla FTP client is available for Ubuntu, and it’s easy to install.
First, launch a new Terminal window by searching for Terminal in the Dash, or by hitting the CTRL+ALT+T keys simultaneously. Once the Terminal launches, type this command at the prompt:
sudo apt-get install filezilla
Enter this command, and then enter your password to authenticate. The apt-get utility will then download and install the FileZilla FTP client for you.
Once the installation is complete, go to the Dash again, search for “FileZilla”, and click on the FileZilla icon. Once the application launches, you can create a new connection by going to the File menu, selecting Site Manager, and entering the information for the site to which you wish to connect.
