comment Where to find the config-file for ProFTP?
@Johann: system users should be able to log into proftpd by default, without any additional config. If it doesn't work, we need more info to debug this. Did you try to access from localhost or from a remote system? What do the proftpd logs tell? What does the ftp client tell? Any errors?

The easiest way to configure proftpd` is to use the GUI application gadmin-proftpd. It allows for configuring users, too.

comment Can't get vnc to connect
hmm - some points: if you've installed x11vnc, i would expect x11vnc -safer -display :0 as command to start the server. Then: Did you try to increase debug output using the -v option (x11vnc -v -display :0)? Finally: If the -voption doesn't give any errors, you can re-check if the server is running using sudo netstat -atpn. This will give you a list of services running and listening for connections.

@Lexicon: AFAIK there's no already-compiled deb package available, just a source archive. Installing an application from source is described here, for example. The INSTALL file located in the source archive describes the different config options you can set before compiling it.
