Subject description: Will Uget do this?
 

I have Juno dial-up Internet service with Puppy 4.3.1, so getting a large-sized download (more than 50 MB) is usually out of the question--I'll get disconnected due to time restrictions.

Is there a way for me to save and resume downloaded files a little at a time with Uget 1.4.8.5?
If so, how do I do this, step-by-step?
(Uget's help menu has no instructions.)

Thanks!

You can often get a brief help menu by going to the command line
(first open a text console) and typing: uget --help

I don't know uget, but for wget to resume its download its: wget -c .......

Very handy to use to use the command line downloader, because then
you can interrupt it (with Ctrl-C) and resume it (by retyping) at will.

Wget allows you to set a reduced download speed so that it doesn't
hog the line and you can still do other stuff over the link (albeit
sloooowly since you are on dialup)

As mentioned by Shep, wget is a simple commandline way of doing this:

Code:
wget -c http://whatever.name.or.URL


or, if you want to limit download speed, to say 3k, while you surf as well:

Code:
wget -c --limit-rate=3k http://whatever.name.or.URL


or, if you wanted to try various GUI downloaders, that can resume downloads, then:

ttuuxxx has Uget in this thread.

I've uploaded the older version, Urlgfe, here.

Aria2fe is a QT3 GUI for aria2c.

2 WX-based downloaders are wxdfast and multiget.

Another older gui downloader is D4X, although some people have experienced it freezing!

2 Java-based downloaders, Jdownloader & Retriever.

Prozilla.

And gtk1 based Aria.

And Lobster's Pwget & Ian's Xwget.

And of course there are plugins for seamonkey, & firefox, that can resume downloads, e.g. DownThemAll.

Regarding Uget usage, I haven't tried it myself, but the older urlgfe used to monitor the clipboard for downloads. Or, see here where they mention integrating Uget with Flashgot.

Thanks, everyone, for the help.
(It's only taken me a damned year to reply. Rolling Eyes )

I had forgotten about this thread until I tried Uget 1.4.8.5 again tonight.
(with Puppy Linux 4.3.1)

Indeed, it does resume broken downloads.
Everything's right there in the interface; there's no need to use commandline.

I couldn't get Uget to work before because it requested a username and password.
(which I later found are the same pretty much everywhere: Puppy and Linux).
So I was still doing the big dial-up downloads with Windows.

On the other hand I have been successful in pausing and resuming a download through SeaMonkey's download manager.

I have the worst luck with SeaMonkey and Firefox.
They will often indicate "download complete" with incomplete downloads.
(It doesn't matter which mirror I use, either.)
Then I have to restart the whole process. Mad
