Download software problems

Postby fwc » Wed Mar 25, 2009 8:31 am

Recently, I ve been trying various programs for downloading files off the Internet but have been struggling with many of them.
In Downloader for X, the files won't download after I change the default download directory. The progress bar moves, but the file doesn't play and when I open the location there is nothing there.

With wget, I try to continue download that I have closed previously and have a log file for, but they never restart at the right place, always from the beginning. (I use wget -c)

Also, last question, in Firefox there is an addon for automatically shutting down your computer. They have some defualt scripts for shutting down after the download is finished but it didn't seem to work. The script is
-h now

Ok, thats all and thanks for any help

the firefox shutdown script i think should have the line
/sbin/shutdown -h now

not just -h now.

Now where was i going? Oh yes, crazy!
