comment Error installing a package: “trying to overwrite directory /usr/share/pixmaps”
@andrewsomething: You're exactly right... most applications store their icon / image in that folder. Overwriting it would give... interesting... results :)

Thanks... I should have known my Makefile would be responsible :)

comment How can i use dyndns and send emails from it?
Right on... it's trivial to send email from any PC with an SMTP server running - the problem is getting the email delivered anywhere without it being rejected.

comment How do I temporarily run an FTP server?
I don't even think you need to launch the PureFTP daemon after installing the package. (I thought it was supposed to be started by the postinst script in the package.)

comment How do I temporarily run an FTP server?
Too bad I haven't had time to finish JetFTP. It does exactly what you describe, and it can run without root privileges (you would have to use a port > 1024 of course). It will run out of the box with no configuration and with a nice GUI too. To get an idea of what it will be like, check out JetHTTP, which is similar in design and interface.
