Install JDownloader for Ubuntu

Even though Linux is growing too fast, outshining other operating systems, lack of a nice download manager in Linux is always felt. Jdownloader is finally out which is expected to resolve all your download problems.


Jdownloader is advanced enough to download automatically from Rapidshare, Megaupload etc. Even downloading Youtube videos is supported. Java powers Jdownloader, thus extending the range of platforms of operation.

To install with Ubuntu repositories issue the following commands in the terminal.

sudo apt-add-ppa repository: jd-team/jdownloader

However, starting with Ubuntu Jaunty, type the following line, changing the expression of the corresponding code-named version of the system:

sudo bash-c “echo ‘deb NAME-VERSION-UBUNTU (example: Jaunty) main’>> / etc / apt / sources.list”
sudo apt-key adv – keyserver – recv-keys 6A68F637

After these processes have been finished, install Jdownloader.
