Filed under: Gnome, Tuxicity, Ubuntu — tuxicity @ 3:51 pm

Lots to download and in need of a download manager? Try Gwget.

Gwget is easy to use and easy to set up:

  • It can resume your downloads
  • You can set it to do a limited amount of downloads at the time
  • You can manage your download speed
  • It docks in your panel; if you accidentally shut it down it docks and continues to run.
  • Drag and Drop support.

Gwget is a frontend of wget, a CLI downloadmanager.

Gwget is available for Ubuntu in the universe repositories.

sudo apt-get install gwget
