kget - how to change directory to save a file?


Hi all!
I'm having quite interesting problem with Kget - I don't have a possibility to change directory to save a file. I can only change directory for saving files in Kget settings.
When I want to save a file Kget starts downloading immediately without asking me where to save downloading file. I can't find in help file or in the google how to solve this problem.
It'a quite strange, because my friend have the same system (in fact it was installed from the same DVD ) and hedoesn't have this problem.
Short about myself:
Suse 10.2
Kget 0.8.5 (KDE 3.5.5)

In short - how to make Kget allow me to choose every time where to save a file?

Thank you for attention!

Turning off expert mode under the options menu it should make it give you a file prompt whenever you start a download.

If you want files to automatically download to the folders you specify, just set them up in the kget preferences > folders tab. You can specify different directories for different file types, or just use a wildcard * to send all files to the same folder.
