Kate FTP Connection Error
I use Kate (KDE Advanced Text Editor) to edit the files on my website, and I generally use the built-in FTP connection in the Filesystem Browser. It's really easy...I enter ftp://<email address hidden>. It then prompts me for a password. After entering my password, all my files are shown in the Filesystem Browser. Everything worked great under Ubuntu 9.04.
When I upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10 (using the auto-update), the FTP functionality in Kate seems to have been broken. I have tried everything that I know to do. I have removed Kate and KDE and re-installed them. Same problem. I downloaded Ubuntu 9.10 and installed it in VirtualBox, installed Kate, but I have the same problem.
Here is the exact error reported in Kate: "Could not connect to host mywebsite.com: Timed out trying to connect to remote host."
One workaround is to use FileZilla to download the files, edit them in Kate, and then upload the files back to the website. That's fine, but a lot of my edits are quick and dirty, so editing the files directly on the website is my preferred method. Another workaround is to use JEdit. I tried the same thing in JEdit (with the FTP plugin), and it works fine. I like JEdit, but I prefer Kate and would like to get it working.
Could I be missing a FTP plugin or setting for Kate? Please help! Thanks.
