Hmm, are you talking about additional sources for you /etc/apt/sources.list file? If so why?

Eg.
- The mirror that you are currently using is down.
- You want to install software that is not available with your your current sources.list file.

Or perhaps you mean something different: eg you want to used different"downloader software".. apt-get, aptitude, synaptic etc

Sorry I have no idea what "idm downloader" is.

It seems that what you are looking for is an "apt frontend". Have you tried synaptic or aptitude?

In windows there is 'internet download manager' software which downloads a file in pieces enabling faster speed.
I had asked similiar question at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-linux-802313/

There is 'axel' in debian which works in similiar way.

Ohh, my parsing of the question was way off base. Seems you are looking for something like wget that will use multiple threads. I remember there used to be a program called "aget" that did just that, but it seems it isn't in Debian anymore. I never found that it made that much of a difference anyway. Anyway as Sumeet says you can try axel.

Cheers,

Evo2.
