Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Rexloader is an open source download manager, written in C++ and QT, with support for ftp, torrent, dc++ and many other protocols. Among other cool things it can do, it can be used with proxys, it is capable of calculating MD5 and SHA1 hashes, and allows multithreaded recording download.
Rexloader 0.1a is still under development, but for now it has a widget that enables the users to easily manage their downloads, it has an AppIndicator allowing the app to continue the download process while minimized.
In this article I will show you how to install Rexloader 0.1a on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Linux Mint 15 Olivia and Linux Mint 14 Nadia.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Rexloader 0.1a on Ubuntu and Linux Mint is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa, update the local repository index and install the rexloader package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ra9oaj/spolab
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install rexloader
