View Full Version : [ubuntu] karmic back port for ARIA download manager

October 30th, 2009, 04:43 PM

I would like to use this awesome download manager under karmic but I need to back-port some how:
libglib1.2ldbl (>= 1.2.10-18 )

link to latest deb package and source

Please don't tell me that there are download managers in repo they are so f**** crappy that I faster jump out from the window then use them.
I wish someone tell me how to do it or just do it for me thanks for attention :-)

well it was easer the I exacted but it cost me a lot of time here's link for x64 systems(contains aria_1.0.0-16.1 aria_1.0.0-17 libglib1.2ldbl libgtk-1.2 libgtk-1.2-common)

Actually I'm curious also as to why Aria was not followed on to Karmic.

It's definitely the best gui download tool I've ever used.

Have you tried Multiget, its an excellent downloader as well with very nice GUI and is in the repo.

Actually no I haven't and I won't be as I have just finished manually installing Aria. Manually sourced the required dependencies due to me running i386 and not x64. Installed the required deps using dpkg and then installed the final aria package with gdebi. All running perfect! :)

I'll upload the package archive and post link for anyone else wanting to do the same for i386 architecture.

Thanks foxmulder881

You saved my day, because aria is the only download manager which is able to store rapidshare passwords.

It your installation works perfect.

Glad I could help mate. It's still one of my favorite download managers of all time.

Cheers for this, its a life saver.

Thanks for the 64bit package. I missed not having the best downloader in linux up and running.
Ubuntu please see fit in making this package available in the future. It was sorely missed by quite a few of us.

I'm glad my links have been able to have helped quite a few people so far. ;)

Thanks for the files.
I tried some download managers but Aria is the best.
I use it for Rapidshare downloads.

well another download manager that works really well is FatRat (http://fatrat.dolezel.info/screenshots) (is in the repos)

it simply works, you can change the speed on the fly, has download basket, active dev, even support torrents (haven't tried this yet), etc.

Features of the Git version:

* HTTP(S)/FTP/SFTP downloads
* FTP/SFTP uploads
* RSS feed support + special functions for TV shows and podcasts
* BitTorrent support (including torrent creating, DHT, UPnP, encryption etc.)
* Torrent search
* Support for SOCKS5 and HTTP proxies
* RapidShare.com FREE downloads
* RapidShare.com uploads
* RapidShare.com link verification and folder extraction
* RapidSafe link decoding
* MD4/MD5/SHA1 hash computing
* Remote control via Jabber (!)
* Remote control via a web interface
* YouTube video downloading

And even more is available thanks to the plugins.

for me is second best to aria, the only feature i feel lacking is integration with flashgot, which am going to check out with the devs :)

FatRat screenshots look pretty sleek. Personally, I've since implemented a home server to handle all my downloads and torrents. So I no longer use a download manager on Ubuntu.

Thanks for this, aria1 "just works", the inbuilt timer makes it easy for me to use my ISP's off-peak data allowance. Yes cron can be used for the same, but aria1 makes it simple to override the timer.

Just a note to say thanks for the rapidshare link.. works great. Aria is by far the easiest Gui for timed downloads and bulk files.
