Install Filezilla in Debian 8

Lets begin by downloading Filezilla.

Visit the official Filezilla site and click on Download button.

This will download a file like FileZilla_x.xx.x_x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.bz2 where “x” is the current version of Filezilla.

Lets move that file in /usr directory.

sudo mv ~/Downloads/FileZilla_x.xx.x_x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.bz2 /usr

Go to /usr and decompress filezilla:

cd /usr

sudo tar xvf FileZilla_x.xx.x_x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.bz2

Remove the compressed file:

sudo rm FileZilla_x.xx.x_x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.bz2

lets create the launcher. Press the “Super Key” (this one is located on your keyboard between “ctrl” and “alt”. In windows world is also called “Windows Key”)

then type “main menu”
