    Re: download manager

    Welcome to the Ubuntu Forums

    Program packages are often installed from the Ubuntu repositories. This is different from Windows. Some programs are not available that way, and are more complicated to install. In that case you must use the instructions available. But start with the vast amount of programs that can be installed from the Ubuntu repositories

    If you want an intuitive way to do it, use the Software Center

    If you want a more advanced GUI tool, install Synaptic (via the Software Center) and activate some more repositories.

    If you want full flexibility, use the command line tool apt-get with superuser privileges in a terminal window, for example

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install synaptic
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
    to get codecs, flashplayer and other things to play music and video,

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gimp
    to get the GNU Image Manipulation Program.

    A download-manager for what particular purpose?

    I suspect most users have no specific download-manager installed, though there are some add-ons for browsers, such as downthemall for firefox

    or for chromium
