I'm using Ubuntu minimal install (With no window manager). What is the quickest and easiest way to upload a file somewhere? Something like a script to pastebin would work.

Ubuntu has a package called "pastebinit", which is a script that puts a file on pastebin and then prints the URL.

Install it with:

$ sudo apt-get install pastebinit

Using it is very easy:

$ pastebinit your_file.txt
