    Firestarter is no longer being maintained, will not support IPv6 and Ubuntu has decided it is obsolete and removed from the official repositories. Any distro’s based off Ubuntu will no longer provide it.

    It still works great and the way to install it now is to download the .deb file from the Ubuntu Raring (13.04) repository manually and install it using dpkg.

    It can be downloaded from here http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/raring/universe/base/firestarter

    Firestarter hasn’t been updated for almost 9 years.

    Using Kubuntu 13.10, unfortunately Firestarter is not in the repositories.

    I notice no IPv6. That’s too bad. Maybe next version?

    I’ve been using it for 6+ years. its easy, bug free & great, I also use Clam for anti virus. Both, when I’m using various Ubuntu O/S & currently using Point linux.
