Download Manager for Ubuntu Edgy Eft
You can install these following packages that can be use as download manager for Ubuntu Edgy Eft.

Wget
Wget is a network utility to retrieve files from the Web using http(s) and ftp, the two most widely used Internet protocols. It works non-interactively, so it will work in the background, after having logged off. The program supports recursive retrieval of web-authoring pages as well as ftp sites — you can use wget to make mirrors of archives and home pages or to travel the Web like a WWW robot.

Wget works particularly well with slow or unstable connections by continuing to retrieve a document until the document is fully downloaded. Re-getting files from where it left off works on servers (both http and ftp) that support it. Both http and ftp retrievals can be time stamped, so wget can see if the remote file has changed since the last retrieval and automatically retrieve the new version if it has.

Wget supports proxy servers; this can lighten the network load, speed up retrieval, and provide access behind firewalls.

Wget is a default download manager for Ubuntu Edgy Eft. Therefore you do not need to install it again

1. Aria

Aria is a download manager. The transfer can be paused, resumed, queued and saved. It has a very user friendly GTK based GUI, and useful log consoles. Program supports CRC checking, HTTP proxy server, cut-and-paste, drag-and-drop, and can define specific file retrieving procedure for particular web servers.

KGET - K Desktop Environment Only

KGET is a a download manager similar to GetRight or Go!zilla. It keeps all your downloads in one dialog and you can add and remove transfers. Transfers can be paused, resumed, queued or scheduled. Dialogs display info about status of transfers – progress, size, speed and remaining time. Program supports drag & drop from KDE applications and Netscape.

-sudo apt-get install kget

This package is part of KDE, as a component of the KDE network module. Therefore you need to install another KDE packages to run KGET on your Ubuntu Edgy Eft.

-sort of a quote. I added a comment for Kget and changed formatting.

This is from http://www.supriyadisw.net/2006/11/top-6-download-manag...

The repositories for downloading and installing some of these programs are pre-listed in the synaptic repository list. Open up synaptic package manager and search for the names of these programs.

One of those should satisfy your needs.

A download manager that is very easy to get on any platform is the DownThemAll plugin for firefox. It isn't terribly feature rich, but it is very easy to setup and use.

Linux (or at least KDE) doesn't need a download manager. It automatically saves what it has already downloaded, and it can start again from where it left off.
