Download from the manager Firefox it is relatively practical because although it is simple, you cannot minimize it to the tray. The good thing is that if you close Firefox never mind, the download manager runs the same.
With Chromium It happens differently, the manager is kind of weird and the truth is that it is of little use because you cannot close the browser and that consumes resources.
There are alternatives like Toucan y Jdownloader, but I don't like any of them. Jdownloader use Java (i hate java with all my being) already Toucan I have never made it work, so it is not viable for me, not to mention how heavy Jdownloader.
Anyway, many times what we want to download is something embedded in a Link and we also need to do it in a light and non-intrusive way, without windows on top or anything like that. Well the solution, as always, is in the all powerful terminal.
Do you remember Wget? Well, with it we can do many things, from downloading something from a page and now, to downloading many links, one after another and restarting the connection if it falls.
The thing is very simple, the only thing we need is a common and wild text editor, a terminal (preferably that runs in the background as guake, jterm or yakuake) and be a bit neat.
- First we are going to look for the exact links from where we want to download the content.
- Once located, we copy each link in the text editor.
- We save the file in .txt where we want the content to be downloaded.
Then, we must be ordered so we go from the terminal to the folder in which we want the content to be downloaded:
Once inside, we must make sure that the text file is in that same folder, if not, we move it (graphically or via terminal). If we already have it, we do:
wget -c -i archivo.txt
It's simple, didn't you think that with that simple command line you would have something that huge programs like Jdownloader offer you? But I still explain what each thing does:
- wget is what links and downloads the content.
- -c is for you to continue in case of interrupted download.
- -i is what takes, so to speak, the links from the text file.
- file.txt Do I have to explain?
And well, that's it, it's really simple but brutally useful, at least for me.
I hope it serves you, greetings.
