I just purchased Humble Indie Bundle 8, got the codes to install the games in Ubuntu Software Centre and in Steam.
I was trying to install Oil Rush in Ubuntu Software Centre. The problem is that I have a poor internet connection; it disconnects every 2 minutes. While downloading, the internet connection disrupts, the download process stops and I receive the following message:
Failed to fetch https://private-ppa.launchpad.net/co...buntu4_all.deb Operation too slow. Less than 10 bytes/sec transferred the last 120 seconds
Then I have to start over again from scratch. I tried to download the game several times, but I am tired of trying and will install it through Steam, which allows to resume downloads.
This really irritates me. Why isn't it possible to pause a download in Ubuntu Software Centre, or just to close the Software Centre and resume the download later, like in Steam?
