Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, uGet is an open-source download manager, running on Linux. It integrates easily with Mozilla Firefox, it has support for queue and resume downloads and ability to download via terminal. The latest version available is uGet 1.10.5, which has been released a while ago, coming with special support for Ubuntu 14.04 and derivative systems.
In this article I will show you how to install uGet 1.10.5 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04 and Elementary OS 0.3 Isis.
Because it is available via PPA, installing uGet 1.10.5 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Elementary OS and Pinguy OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the uget and aria2 packages. Like this:
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:plushuang-tw/uget-stable
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install uget aria2
Optional, to remove uget and aria2 , do:
$ sudo apt-get remove uget aria2
Or, if you want to uninstall uget and aria2, disable the recently added PPA and downgrade all the packages that got updated via the PPA, do:
$ sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
$ sudu ppa-purge ppa:plushuang-tw/uget-stable
