Ubuntu - wget

Post by Howard Kaikow » Wed Jul 29, 2009 11:43 pm

It seems that Ubuntu now includes wget.

I have not yet tried wget.

In Ubuntu 9.04, currently with Firefox 3.0.12, Will FlashGot work with the built-in wget?

Or, would I do better with aria or d4X?

Note that I saw a posting recently that D4X is no longer being developed/supported.
If true, that would rule out D4X.

P.S. Is the same .xpi file used for Firefox in Linux as in Windows? Or, is it a separate download?

When booted to Ubutu, the Ubuntu system has no ttrouble access files on the Vista system.
I think that you just need to set up the shares on the Windows XP system.

I do mo yuet know enough about Ubuntu to go the other way,

I would suspect, yes.

Code: Select all

+ Native support for wget via xterm on Linux
