There was a discussion about this a year or so ago and I think it came down to licensing issues.

Dirk would know more about this as I believe he usually deals with the FCKeditor upgrades …

If you do not need last features :

#6089 : The editor is now enabled on iOS 5 (iPad and iPhone).
#7354 : It is now possible to exit from blockquotes by using the Enter key on empty paragraphs.
#7931 : The mode event now carries the previous editor mode.
#6161 : New autoGrow_onStartup configuration option.
#8052 : autogrow is now available as an editor command.
#3457 : It is now possible to edit the contents of <textarea> elements through the dialog window.
#8242 : The "»" character is now added to the Special Character dialog window.


You can try jQuery plugin.

By default CKfinder stores images in your public_html/images/ckfinder/userfiles/. Make sure those folders exist and are writable.
Maybe you will also need to create a _thumbs and a images folder under the userfiles folder.

CKEditor itself is fine, from a license point of view. There was no CKEditor add-on that allowed image uploads that had a compatible license, though, last time I looked at it. This may well have changed, I haven't checked ...

Nota bene: CKFinder is for demonstration purposes only.
Unlicensed Copies

If you did not pay for a license, you may use unlicensed copies of CKFinder for
the exclusive purpose of demonstration. In this case you will be using CKFinder
in "demo mode". Without derogating from the forgoing, you may not use CKFinder
in "demo mode" for commercial purposes. CKFinder shall be used only for
evaluation purposes and may not be used or disclosed for any other purposes,
including without limitation, external distribution or software development.
You may not remove demo notices from the interface nor disable the ability to
display such notices or otherwise modify CKFinder. Product support is not
offered for CKFinder in "demo mode".


So to use CKEditor + CKFinder from the jQuery plugin you need to buy a license of CKFinder. Price: US $59. Read more here.

If you need GPL, you can try the powerfull ImageManager plugin ver. 1.1 for FCKeditor. You will get more tools for image management.

Ben,
I have no idea what you just did but it is working now... I am able to upload pictures via ckeditor. I'm glad on one hand but concerned how you might have been able to manipulate within my test directories?
