    Internet Download Manager (IDM) on Ubuntu

    Hello everybody,

    I need help from Ubuntu expert.

    i have installed Internet Download Manager (IDM) into my Ubuntu. It works. BUT... it cannot successfully integrated with Mozilla Firefox. Normally, if u right click on any link that u want to donwload, there will be an option, to download the file with IDM. now it doesnt work as it suppose to. Any suggestion on how to resolve it?

    If it's not possible to me to use this software, is there any alternative from ubuntu or maybe from other sources, where i can get such a very beneficial software like IDM? it's because, with IDM, i can donwload 10 times faster than usual connection on my vista!

    I really want to use this software!

    TQVM!!!

    I recommend Flashgot in Firefox, and set it to use Kget. Very effective. If you want a download accelerator, the only one I found is Axcel, which is command line & not very friendly to the beginner.

    Two questions here:

    First of all, how was IDM used with Ubuntu? Wine?

    And how would that be done?

    Sorry, I am a newbie with Linux OS'es (just did a complete install for Ubuntu Jaunty 64 for the first time), so if possible, as detailed as possible a reply would go a long way for me

    Much appreciated.
