Question How do i download from a websites link....OK I'm pitiful

I am trying to download a boot splash screen from, when I click on the download link, rather than seeing the download manager ticking away while saving the file I am switched to a Konqueror screen with this in the address bar
and some file names and permission on the same screen.

How do I save this file to my directory?

you could right click on the link, and select the save as option. or alternately, do a wget, as suggested by mikage14.
