A Brief History of uGet

  • The uGet Project started back in January 2003 as UrlGet and throughout the years has had a few name variations until we settled on "uGet" in 2008.

    uGet was originally a GTK+2 based application that worked on various GTK+2 based distributions but in 2011 was upgraded to GTK+3 in anticipation of the technology advancement in the Linux Desktop. uGet still works on distributions that use GTK+2 but users will need to also add the GTK+3 packages to their system.
