About installing internet download manger or any download manager in puppy linux.


Hello,
I'm new to this forum. I love Linux though I didn't use Linux before but I always read about Linux's features and futures.
Anyways, Few days ago I installed Pupppy Linux in my almost dead notebook based on Intel Atom Processor and It's running pretty well now. Now, I want to install a download manager for downloading all files from internet, that means a download manager which will work like Internet Download Manager(for windows is the best download manager) and integrates with browser like mozilla or chrome or any other browser.

Please Help me how to download and where to download?

Not a lot to help you with. Open Chrome, go to the Chrome Extensions section and at the bottom of the page, click "Get more extensions". Put "download manager" in the search box. Pick one.

browser addons are usually platform independent, so it shouldn't be a problem to find & install one.

that said, i never saw the point of these download managers.
they might sometimes help with downloading multiple files from large storage service sites, but in my experience the gain is small, the sites are not easily tricked, and interrupted downloads are frequent.
also there's a good chance the addon contains some sort of mal/spy/adware. higher than with other addons imo.

use torrenting wherever possible, and trust your browser to do the right thing with the rest.

wget -c http://thefile

-c stands for "continue".

Do this in puppy for any pet or .sfs url you want in Puppy linux.

Best damn downloader manager I know of. Already built into Puppy.

Code:
$ wget -c http://distro.ibiblio.org/blacklab/linspire/linspire-7-x64.iso
--2017-12-25 13:45:28--  http://distro.ibiblio.org/blacklab/linspire/linspire-7-x64.iso

The iso I am downloading? The link is only good for today and I think tomorrow. Linspire is a paid for Linux operating system.

Browser downloader. I don't use those.

Most of Puppy Linux is based on FLTK, X11,... You may use DILLO or learn the curves of FLTK, C++, and X11.

So far I know, there is no graphical application for managing internet downloads/urls for Puppy Linux (yet).

I'd recommend starting with cd and ls commands, than use Google to figure out how to use mv and cp to copy move and rename files and folders. if you need help figuring out an app just run appname --help example cp --help. And instead of using a gui tool do a Google search on how to do it cli.

The term is a powerful resource when figured out. Have Fun!

Tahrpup comes with uget install http://ugetdm.com along with several others.

Let me know if this is what you're looking for.

Reload this Page About installing internet download manger or any download manager in puppy linux.

What makes idm idm is how they can show their button inframe of download area. I hope linux can really compete windows in certain way.
