Plus added a link on how to integrate aria2c with flashgot.


That is really useful. I now actually use aria2c (not into typing). With this I can just click on a link and away we go.

I still prefer the original Aria though for when I want to keep track of files. Since the last version (1.0.0) has the Remaining Time fixed I can't really fault it for keeping track and resuming downloads (all in one nice GUI). The only thing missing is multithreading but aria2c does not do a perfect job there anyway.

I have also used this technique on Aget (which you brought to my attention before). It is fairly simple but for multithreading it is spot on for providing acceleration. It is the only multi-threading Linux downloader that I have found that does the job properly without thrashing your hard disk. (not Prozilla or D4x or DownThemAll or aria2c). It does not matter at very slow speeds but at Adsl2+ speeds it makes a big difference. Now with a simple click I can choose Aget from a download link and it will download up to 10 times faster through congested overseas links.
The Aget pet is here

Given that Aget is only 1k, why is it not in Puppy when Axel (which can't resume) is?

Uploaded v0.15.1. Interesting that the What's New, on http://linux.softpedia.com mentions lowers CPU usage.

Does anyone know how to get aria2c to exit as soon as it finished downloading a torrent?

amigo,

not sure about this, but if you email the developer with this query, he's responds to queries.

Thanks, muggins -I have done so today. I went to the download area because I was sure I had an old version -I notice that the version you offer is also pretty far behind (current aria2-1.1.2):
