GTK+ 1.2.3 or higher. GTK+/Glib is included with most systems now. If you don't have it installed, you may want to check to see if your vendor has a package available. If not, you can download the latest version of GTK+ and Glib from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk. gFTP will work with version 1.2 or 2.x of GTK+, I would suggest using GTK+ 2.x, but installing GTK+ 2.x does require installing more packages onto your system.
pthread libraries. If you have a libc6 based machine (Debian 2.x+, Red Hat 5.x+), you should already have the pthread libraries installed. If you have a libc5 based machine, you will need to install LinuxThreads. You can download it from my website here. If you are running a pretty modern Linux distribution, this shouldn't be an issue. Also, if you don't have LinuxThreads installed, you most likely don't have thread safe X libraries. You must have thread safe X libraries or gFTP will constantly crash. You can download some thread safe X libraries off my website here. If you are on a platform other than GNU/Linux, you may want to take a look at the FSU Pthreads library.
I would recommend running X in at least 800x600 mode.
