The items I generally add after a fresh Linux install are -

Shutter
GIMP (if not already part of the install)
Mirage
Trimage
FileZilla
Geany
jEdit
Meld (as mentioned above)

Plus, I generally install multiple browsers, for testing. Chromium, Epiphany, Midori, Opera, etc.

Thank you for these, have to check them out.

I also install Chromium and uses gimp sometimes.

I have used KolourPaint, because its a simple image editor, but dont like that it is for kde, but I havn't found a better one that is simple and has what I want yet.

I do not use any ftp-program like FileZilla I use de ordinary filesystem and just connects to the server. Any special reason you use FileZilla instead.

(I am not using ubuntu at the moment, moved to linux mint about a year ago.)

Thanks for the list Mike :)
I'm using Chromium as default browser.
Ubuntu 13.10 cannot connect ftp/ssh/sftp using the default File manager.
Or maybe I just don't know how? :rolleyes:

I believe there is a connect to server in the menu where you can choose ssh, and then connect to your server.

Yes there is.
But only one field, there's no option/dropdown to select either ssh/sftp/ftp.

FileZilla is a lazy carry-over from when I ran Windows.

@RoldanLT , aren't you using Nemo? File >> Connect to Server >> Server Details should be giving you the option to select Type from a drop-down menu.

All I got on my Ubuntu 13.10
View attachment 70349
In that dialog box, put in:
Code:
sftp://address.com:port/directory
ftp://address.com:port/directory
The directory part is optional, but that's how you operate it. A box then appears to enter a username and password if it needs it.
I've only ever used sftp through Nautilus, but I'm guessing the ssh and ftp parts work similar.

If you like you can download from their homepage for ubuntu http://google.com/chrome/ so you can install the standart chrome not chromium and i also think linuxmint is much better than ubuntu but ubuntu is good too linuxmint is of course based on ubuntu.
