Install JDownloader for Ubuntu – DLC Download Container App

Install JDownloader, the DLC Download Container App for Ubuntu.

JDownloader is an open source software, written completely in Java and¬†platform independent. Download files from One-Click-Hosters like Rapidshare.com, Share-Online, BitShare, FreakShare, or CloudNator.com — it works for users who don't pay, and users with a premium account can enter their account details to download with Full Speed. JDownloader can open DLC files and download multiple files at the same time, it has captcha recognition, and even extracts archives automatical once all files have been downloaded. JDownloader is absolutely free to use, as you would expect from Open Source software.

Another real highlight is the support of "link encryption" sites like linkcrypt.ws are supported — just copy+paste the "encrypted" link and JD does the rest. JDownloader can open CCF, RSDF and the new DLC files.

To install JDownloader in Ubuntu 9.10/10.04/10.10/11.04/11.10/12.04, open the terminal and run the following command:

# sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jd-team/jdownloader
# sudo apt-get update
# sudo apt-get install jdownloader

After installation, you can start it from the Dashboard. It may hang the first time(s) you run it due to the updates… if you get tired of waiting or think it is is hanging, just close it and open it again… it'll update and start normally eventually ;)
