[HOW TO] Install JDownloader in Xubuntu (ppa)

JDownloader simplifies downloading files from One-Click-Hosters like Rapidshare.com or Megaupload.com - not only for users with a premium account but also for users who don't pay. It offers downloading in multiple paralell streams, captcha recognition, automatical file extraction and much more. Of course, JDownloader is absolutely free of charge. Additionally, many "link encryption" sites are supported - so you just paste the "encrypted" links and JD does the rest. JDownloader can import CCF, RSDF and the new DLC files.

Install

Open a terminal window and run:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jd-team/jdownloader -y && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install jdownloader -y

Actually, this package performs a pseudo-installation. When JDownloader is run for the first time (Applications Menu > Internet > JDownloader), it'll be installed in your $HOME, under ~/.jdownloader.

After downloading and installing, JDownloader will ask you to select your language, choose a destination for your downloads and whether you'd like to install the FlashGot Firefox extension.

Choose language and download directory in JDownloader installation Option to install FlashGot during JDownloader installation

And that's it. JDownloader is now installed.
