FTP server for loading it
I use Filezilla for any ftp between my supported public sites and the LAMP development box I'm running on installed Mint Gnome ops.

Mint 8 has an FTP uploader built in. Find it in the Internet sub-menu in the Mint Menu.
Kompozer (or maybe the "z" should be an "s") is a good replacement for Dreamweaver. Find it in Synaptic.

There isn't really a WYSIWYG web editor that can compare to Dreamweaver. Your best bet will be to learn basic HTML/CSS and code the website manually. WYSIWYG editors are handy sometimes, but you shouldn't rely on them completely. HTML isn't that complex to learn (not like learning an actual programming language) and once you get a basic grasp of it there are plenty of free templates floating around that you can take and modify for your needs.

I use Dreamweaver in VirtualBox or Bluefish in Linux, it's not a WYSIWYG web editor though.

FileZilla as a FTP program or the built in one in Dreamweaver.

Depends if you want a WYSIWYG web editor or want to write the XHTML/CSS yourself.

If you're crazy you can set your system up as a webserver, install wordpress, and hack wordpress themes to build sites with. :D

Why is that crazy? It's precisely what I've done. :mrgreen:

Well, I have the LAMP stack installed for local testing of websites before I put them live, and a wordpress install on there that I've never really used.

In answer to the original post, I hand code my HTML, CSS and PHP in a text editor, test it on my machine, and upload with filezilla. Probably not much help to you if you're still relying on Dreamweaver.

Quanta plus has been the long time standard on the KDE desktop
http://quanta.kdewebdev.org/screenshots.php
--if you use that, under Gnome desktop, you have to bring in the associated kdelibs to make it run,

In terminal, check
  • apt search quanta
    p quanta - web development environment for KDE
    p quanta-data - data files for Quanta Plus web development

--some comparisons
