Compile from source (according to wiki https://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Client_Compile ):

Install dependencies:

wxWidgets
GnuTLS
libidn
gettext (Compiletime only)
libdbus (under Unix-like systems)

Download source package:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/filezilla/files/FileZilla_Client/3.7.4.1/FileZilla_3.7.4.1_src.tar.bz2/download

Exact source archive:

tar -xvf File-name.tar.bz2

Enter exacted directory and compile:

./configure
make
make install

That's all.

  • I installed the dependencies but gave an error when making the make command . ^ make[3]: *** [libengine_a-ControlSocket.o] Error 1 make[3]: Leaving directory /home/patterson/Downloads/filezilla-3.7.4.1/src/engine' make[2]: *** [all] Error 2 make[2]: Leaving directory /home/patterson/Downloads/filezilla-3.7.4.1/src/engine' make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/patterson/Downloads/filezilla-3.7.4.1/src' make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 bash-4.2# – Patterson Feb 14 '14 at 15:13
  • What error? Describe it. Do you have gcc? – enedil Feb 14 '14 at 15:14
  • Which version of wxWidgets are you using? Filezilla requires wxWidgets>=2.8.4. – enedil Feb 14 '14 at 15:29

The SlackBuild makes it pretty easy: http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.1/network/filezilla/

There is one required dependency, wxPython, which also has a SlackBuild: http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.1/libraries/wxPython/

Download the source, wxPython-src-2.8.12.1.tar.bz2 and the SlackBuild, wxPython.tar.gz.

From wherever you downloaded them to,

# tar xzf wxPython.tar.gz 
# mv wxPython-src-2.8.12.1.tar.bz2 wxPython
# cd wxPython
# ./wxPython.SlackBuild 

It'll build the package, and at the end it'll tell you something like,

Slackware package /tmp/wxPython-src-2.8.12.1-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz created.

Install the package:

# installpkg /tmp/wxPython-src-2.8.12.1-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz


Now that the dependency is installed, you repeat the process with FileZilla. Download the source, FileZilla_3.7.4_src.tar.bz2 and the SlackBuild, filezilla.tar.gz.

From wherever you downloaded them to,

# tar xzf filezilla.tar.gz 
# mv FileZilla_3.7.4_src.tar.bz2 filezilla
# cd filezilla
# ./filezilla.SlackBuild 

It'll build the package, and at the end it'll tell you something like,

Slackware package /tmp/FileZilla_3.7.4-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz created.

Install the package:

# installpkg /tmp/FileZilla_3.7.4-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz

That's it! Now you can run FileZilla.
