Questions: How  to install Vsftpd on Ubuntu 12.04 or  Mint 13  ?

Answer :

1- Start  with installing vsftp

sudo apt-get install vsftpd

2- Edit the config file

sudo vi /etc/vsftpd.conf

The vsftpd.conf file contains a large number of configuratrions arguments . If you want people with local user accounts on the FTP server to be able to connect via FTP (you usually do), you will need to change this directive:

local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
anonymous_enable=NO

Save and exit

3- Restart vsftpd

sudo service vsftpd restart

If you want  to give writing rights  to  users  for some extra directories . You need to set    chmod a+w /directory
