If you are looking for GUI based FTP client, one of the best choice is FileZilla, in this article i will show you how to install FileZilla on lubuntu.
FileZilla is my favorite program for FTP client, but don't get me wrong, FileZilla is not just support the regular FTP protocol but also the more secure SFTP and FTPS protocol.
FileZilla is easy to use FTP client, just enter the hostname of the FTP server, your username and password, and the port number, and once connected you can upload/download files with it.
To install FileZilla on lubuntu is also very easy, all you have to do is open terminal/console/command line, and then type this command:
sudo apt-get install filezilla
The FileZilla installation package itself is not too big, only about 15 MB, you should have no problem.
