KGet Problems in KDE


Everytime I run KGet under KDE (Using RH9), it does not appear. I checked System Monitor and it's there under Process Listing. This problem does not arise in Gnome. How can I make KGet appear?

I ran it under Terminal and it indicates that KGet is already running. Help.

KGet is just a frontend for Wget. In console, try doing this:
wget http://wherever/the-file/is
if that works, use that...to continue a broken download use:
wget -c http://wherever/the-file/is
Hope it helps

I prefer the DAP interface of kget. Is there a way to get this back at KDE?

Try editing/deleting ~/.kde/share/config/kgetrc

Wget rocks, there's no need for anything else. Use with -a logfile and then tail -f logfile for progress tracking, Kb by Kb.
I've almost finished resuming the UT2003 epicbonuxpackone.exe on a 56K!

I can't seem to download behind a proxy. How can I assign proxy in it? I tried --proxy=on but it's still the same.

You need to set the correct environmental variable as stated in man wget, try altering your /etc/wgetrc.
