Install Steadyflow, Download Manager for Gnome With A Simplistic GUI

Steadyflow is a download manager written in GTK+ for the Gnome desktop. And being a Gnome App, it has a very simple GUI. Although when comparing with other apps such as Kget for instance, the Steadyflow do lack some "options", but for those who has a thing for Gnome philosophy, Steadyflow is a pretty good utility nonetheless.

Main features...

*. Pause, Resume, Stop... downloads.

*. Multiple files downloading support.

*. Search within the app for files that are in the list.

*. Command-line support.

*. Automatic notifiers.

*. Restart/Shut-down the PC after downloading completes.

*. Download queue.

*. Limit speeds... are few to mention.

If you run Ubuntu 10.10 or 10.04, then you can install Steadyflow using a PPA channel. Open your Terminal and issue the below command...

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sikon/steadyflow

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install steadyflow
