Install uGet Download Manager in Ubuntu

Looking for Linux Server Admin or WordPress Expert? We can help.


uGet is an Open Source Download manager for Linux and Windows too. They are mainly focusing on Linux. But it can work on Windows and Android (beta) too.

uGet is written in C programing language. Source code is available from sourceforge GIT repo

To install uGet, run

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:plushuang-tw/uget-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install uget

I mostly use wget for Downloading files on Ubuntu. wget is a lightweight command line utility. Only problem with wget is no way you can control bandwidth or pause download (other than CTRL+C).
