I am really new to ubuntu and using 14.04 version. I have heard that Aria2 is one of the best download managers. How can I change the directory using terminal so that it can put the file on a specific hard drive after it finishes downloading?

    @the_Seppi this question is not a duplicate at all. That is a global question this is application specific. – Michael Tunnell Apr 13 '15 at 23:54

-d, --dir=

The directory to store the downloaded file.

This option is per download basis, you have to do this every time.

Alternatively, you can install uGet, http://uGetdm.com , which is a front-end to aria2. You can also ask for help on the uGet Forum, http://uGetdm.com/forum

    I have tried using that command before and after a copied torrent link. But unfortunately I failed. If its not too much can you please show me a step by step process? – user397790 Apr 14 '15 at 8:48
  • A full command for a magnet link would be: aria2c -d /path/to/download/dir 'magnet:...' – OrigamiEye Oct 18 '20 at 11:12
