comment Is it possible to have multi-thread cURL with Flashgot in Ubuntu?
although people seem to praise aria2 before curl, using curl multiple connections in uGet it is for the first time in Linux (maybe excepting Flareget, now very limited in the free version) that I have seen download speeds pushed up in the same way IDM does it in Windows

take a look at Michaell Tunnell's answer, curl has multi-thread option in uGet

to change the default settings (number of connections per download, download folder, etc): here on the uGet website

not only the default download location can be changed in this way, but also the number of connections and other settings

what's important is that the solution is posted, no matter that in other answer than yours

@Pandya - are you aware of the answer to your comment?

comment Is it possible to have multi-thread cURL with Flashgot in Ubuntu?
that is the best solution for what I was asking; curl multi-connection inside uGet, and uGet integration in Flashgot

comment Can't shutdown and logout from top panel in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
yes, but it's an independent project. like cairo, can be used in any desktop but it's lighter and simpler

comment Can't shutdown and logout from top panel in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
as seen in the bug report linked in other answer and comment, this is caused not only by Cairo Dock. I only wanted to point out that while for the author of the question as well as for you the problem is solved by adjusting cairo's startup, it is not solved in all cases in this way. asking a new question about plank would be a duplicate of this one, because it is the same problem, and needs (and has, in the other answer) the same solution. on the other hand, it might be possible for your solution to be transposed for Plank, but I do not know how

Great, but I do not know whether it's better; the 15 secs difference may or may not be more important than the fact that this is a bit more difficult to implement than the other solutions; also, it looks limited to cairo-dock as far as I can see, while the bug is not. The other solutions can easily be adjusted to fix other docks. I use Plank myself and cannot test this now. Can it be adjusted for other docks? - While the above bounty will be granted to the other answer, I do not mind granting a second :)

as stated in the bug report, this is also triggered by other docks, like Plank, in fact by any application which is registered to LauncherEntry interface of Unity DBus and is started before Unity
