View Full Version : [ubuntu] trouble installing JDownloader

June 1st, 2009, 01:30 PM
I really need help on how to install JDownloader for my Ubuntu 9.04.
Can anyone help me?

I tried following this steps at http://pagesofinterest.net/blog/2009/05/installing-jdownloader-in-ubuntu/ but it failed.

Exactly what "failed"?
I downloaded the Linux version and unzipped it into ~/bin directory. I open a console, change to the ~/bin/JDownloader directory and invoke "java -jar JDownloader.jar". You could also create a launcher to invoke the command, if that is easier for you.

I don't know if you've got the answer.

This worked for me

This is an old thread by now but you never know, someone else may end up here looking how to install the best download manager there is.

The best way to install it is thus (I'm a Kubuntu user but I think the method is the same for Ubuntu);

1. From your package manager get 'Sun-Java6-jre' (this is the latest version as of today).

2. After it has installed open a Terminal, copy and paste;

wget && chmod +x jd.sh && ./jd.sh

The Terminal DL will end very quickly and then you'll get JDownloader's own window which will complete the process for you.

You're done.
