Ubuntu: Can I install a firewall interface without `menu`?


I need an interface for ufw (uncomplicated firewall) that does not depend on "menu", which is outdated and messing with software updates/installations. I don't mind building from source but prefer a deb.


I found a deb on planet ubuntu that doesn't require menu :D! Solved. It is for a newer version of gufw.

Fortunately gufw Install gufw no longer requires menu.


Firestarter, fireshark, fwbuilder, shorewall are some of the firewall builders available. firestarter is gtk based, and might be the lightest of these. They are available through Synaptic Package Manager if not in Software Center. There is also the option of building iptables using ufw without the gui. Information about firestarter is available at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Firestarter . For a bit of information on firewalls and the GUI's to build them, see https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/serverguide/C/firewall.html .


Try Comodo firewall. Comodo's firewall claims to provide protection from viruses, malware, and hackers.
