As a suggestion;
The Flashgot extension for Firefox has similar functionality.
Find it here: http://flashgot.net/
And here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/220

Yep, I am aware of that. But due to some reason, don't prefer to use FlashGot. I prefer dedicated download manager softwares over the add-on ones.

Orbit is the only one to have worked perfectly for me under Wine as of yet. Is there any you could recommend?

Thanks a lot i92guboj.
This is what I did.

Code:
yum install xclip
yum install xbindkeys
touch ~/.xbindkeysrc
xbindkeys --defaults > ~/.xbindkeysrc
Copy paste the content

Quote:
"gnome-dictionary $(xclip -o)"
m:0xc + c:26"
which is ctrl + alt + e in ~/.xbindkeysrc
then

Code:
xbindkeys &
it worked.!!

Preference is of course your own business.
Perhaps it is better if you review for yourself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compari...nload_managers
There you will find a list of common download managers, along with their platform capabilities, license types, issues, etc.

Glad to know that. Sometimes it just takes a bit of work and understanding about the Linux internals to replicate the same functionality with the already existing tools. It's the linux way, build your own solution using pieces, instead of reinventing the wheel again and again with every single application.

What about Freecorder toolbar

I have used teh Freecorder Toolbar in WinXP. It places a bar with the usual recording symbols at teh top of the screen, and clicking the 'record' button will start recording any music that you can listen to, no matter what its origin.
I believe that there is a corresponding (but not free) video recorder toolbar.

I don't know about Qcad, but Blender is the most used 3D open source software out there. Professionals like it due to the wide range of features it provides.

But, yeah, the interface might prove to be a little confusing for the first-time Blender user.

SoftPlan & VectorWorks

These are 2 of the most popular 2D/3D Cad packages that run under Windows.

VectorWorks runs under MAC as well.

Try Kivio and Umbrello. IMHO, they are nice alternatives to Visio.

Also, I think you might well be able to run Visio in latest Wine:
