Install Uget Download Manager in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal

The recently updated Steadyflow is a very simple download manager for those you don't heavily need a bit more powerful utility. But for most of us who need something that is rich in features, then most will be disappointed with Steadyflow. In that case I think UGET Download manager would come in handy!.

They recently updated to its latest version which is 1.7.6. Not just for Ubuntu users, but if you use the Gnome3 desktop, then it is advised to update to this version since they've done some compability issues with GTK3+, etc. For Ubuntu users... this version means enhanced appindicator support as well. 

The Useful "Uget" :)...

From starting to Resuming, Pause, Stop... to integrating with Firefox web browser, it has a lot of standard features by default. It continuously monitors the clipboard, so whenever you copy a URL you can easily add it to the Uget download manager. As you can see, the interface by default comes with a categorized views which helps to keep things in order as well. If you want further features, then Uget lets you do that via using the add-on support.

If you run Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, then you can easily install UGET by entering the below command.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:plushuang-tw/uget-devel
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install uget 

If you want it to be able to support the Bittorrent protocol, then you have to use the below command.
sudo apt-get install aria2
After installing go to: "Edit" -> "Settings" -> "Plug-in" ... then choose "aria2", enable it and press "OK" button. That's it!.
