    Post HOWTO: Rapidshare Downloads on Linux Tutorial

    Rapidshare Downloads on Linux Tutorial


    This tutorial is meant to be directed towards linux users, but this will work on Windows too!

    I know many Rapidshare.com Premium Account users who use linux have been looking for an effective way to download multiple files simultaniously.

    I have found a great solution!

    Before I start, let me just say that the tools in this tutorial definetely deserve some sort of donation for their hard work! I am by no means affiliated with the developers of these tools... I simply believe that some open-source developers should be thanked the right way so that they are even more motivated to further improve their work.

    Now on to the tutorial!!!

    First you will need to install the following tools:

    1. Firefox (http://www.mozilla.com/firefox)
    2. FlashGot (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/220)
    3. DownThemAll! (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/201)


    Now follow these steps:

    FlashGot Configuration:
    1. In Firefox: Go to the Tools > Add-ons
    2. Click the Preferences Button under FlashGot
    3. Choose DTA as your Download Manager

    DownThemAll! Configuration:
    1. In Firefox: Go to the Tools > Add-ons
    2. Click the Preferences Button under DownThemAll!
    3. Click the Filters Tab
    4. In the "Caption" textbox type: "Rapidshare Downloads" (without these quotes)
    5. In the "Filtered Extensions" textbox type: "http://rapidshare.com/files/*" (without these quotes)
    6. Make sure that the "Links filter" is checked!

    Finally open your Rapidshare links list (i.e. RSLinksToDownload.txt) in Firefox.
    Highlight the links you want to download and go to Tools > FlashGot > Flashgot Selection

    That's it!

    You can easily view your download status by using the DownThemAll! Manager.

    I hope this post has been helpful.

    Remember: Even if you donate $3 to the developers, you'd be contributing to the evolution of open-source!

    Yours truly,
    PRoTo RoCKeR

    1.) http://rapidshare.com works the same


    2.) This works fine with premium accounts. Before you install DownThemAll! and add the RapidShare filter, log into your rapidshare account in firefox and save the password in password manager.

    DownThemAll! and FlashGot share that cookie. So you won't even have to enter it again, it'll do it automatically.

    3.)
    That's a setting you have to enable under Account Settings on the Rapidshare website in Firefox. They changed it about a month ago where direct downloads is no longer the default, so programs like RapGet and setups liks this won't work unless you save that setting on the Rapidshare website.



    To do this, go to Rapidshare.com

    Under "Premium Zone", click "Premium Zone Login" (even if you've already logged in)

    Click Settings

    Under "Configuration" check the box next to "Direct downloads, requested files are saved without redirection via RapidShare"

    For some weird reason, you have to make sure "Login alias", "New password", and "Re-enter new password" are blank.

    Then click "Save" on the bottom of the page

    Brilliant

    Re: HOWTO: Rapidshare Downloads on Linux Tutorial

    Is there a way to schedule the downloads for a certain time? I can only download between 2am and 8am due to traffic cost. And I prefer not to stay up till 2am everytime I want to download a large file.

    Re: HOWTO: Rapidshare Downloads on Linux Tutorial

    I don't see any reason to use FlashGot. DTA is perfectly integrates directly into Firefox itself & into its "save" window. It also has "download the selection" property with filtering. Where is the step, when one needs FlashGot?
