Maybe some of you remember a download manager that existed for Linux called urlgfe. This download manager has been reborn as uGet, And it is a very light and powerful program to manage any task associated with cyberlockers and similar sites developed for Linux and written using GTK + libraries.
uGet allows the user to classify downloads as well import downloads from HTML files. Each category has a separate configuration that can be inherited by each download present in that category. In addition to this it uses very few resources, while at the same time incorporating a powerful one September of features to keep in mind.
between the main features of uGet we can talk about the ability to queue, pause and resume downloads, multiple connection, support for mirrors, Multiprotocol support, advanced categorization, clipboard monitor, batch downloads, individualized category adjustments, download speed limitation, total active download control and many more.
This program is just one of those listed in the list of similar applications for Ubuntu, among which we can highlight Xtreme Download Manager or jDownloader. About Xtreme Download Manager, by the way, we talked about in this same blog on another occasion.
While considering all of the above features, you need to keep in mind that uGet is fairly simple to use. It is generally intuitive and worth trying to have more controlled downloads that we do directly from websites. In any case, and to be able to install it on our Ubuntu, we first need to run these commands on a terminal:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:plushuang-tw/uget-stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install uget aria2
As for the installation, you can open uGet and try it out. We insist that it’s worth at least giving it a try before you rule it out, it will surely convince you. Don’t forget to come and leave us a comment with your impressions.
