IDM( Internet Download Manager) is the most powerful and popular Download Helper in Windows operating system. I used it myself in Windows 8 and found very efficient as compared to other available download helper like FDM(Free Download Manager). So, Today I am going to install IDM in Linux (Ubuntu 13.04) and give it a try whether it is working or not. So, Let’s get started quickly. The method is same like I show you in my previous post on How To Install Windows Software In Linux.

You can Install IDM in Linux But I found difficulty in downloading Using it. Actually the problem is that it can not grab the Downloading Path successfully. So I prefer other Alternative to IDM in Linux (Ubuntu 13.04) like Wget, Kget and Uget which also perform good. Share your experience in comment box that are you successfully able to install IDM in Linux and also does the download actually start?
