What are you trying to download?

Is it on a website?

What browser?

Is your internet connection working?

sohail0399 02-17-2010 06:30 AM

what kind of download you required?

If you want to install packages you can use apt-get.
for downloading


there is command wget to download.

see also command:
man wget

You are a relatively experienced user. Consider that the OP in this thread might have never opened a terminal and entered a command---much less something as complex as wget.

We don't even know if the OP has the internet connection working.......

Please give us more complete information.....

Are you asking how to get to sourceforge? ( http://sourceforge.net/ )

What exactly do you need to do?

tealeaf 02-17-2010 07:34 AM

Well now, I click on download and then it goe´s to a file on the Computer what next ?

I would recommend wget to a newbie. I think it's a good download manager and not any harder to use than most command-line utilities.

It can even continue a download that was interrupted without starting over.

pixellany 02-17-2010 07:41 AM

Why won't you tell us WHAT you are downloading?????!!!!! What is the file that you now have on your computer?

Are you trying to install some software?

Please give details if you want good help here.

For a newbie who very possibly has never used a terminal? No--I don't think so.

I'm relatively experienced and just reading the options for wget gives me a headache....

If you will not answer our questions, I don't see how we can help you......

One more time:

What are you trying to download, install, etc.?

e.g. are you trying to install some SW? If so, what?

What is the name of the file you downloaded?


If you are not willing to answer these questions, then don't bother posting agian.
