Usage change:

If user does specify filename, plug-ins will use this filename.

otherwise plug-ins will decide filename from remote data.



aria2 (v1.5) some arguments that can't pass by XML-RPC, you must add below arguments in Plug-in settings by yourself.


"--disable-ipv6=true" Disable IPv6. (Fedora user may need this)

"--load-cookies=<FILE>" Load cookies from FILE (Firefox3/Chrome/SQLite3 format)

"--check-certificate=false" Disable verify the peer using certificates.



If you have trouble when you use uget with aria2 (Fedora...etc), I suggest that user run aria2c in terminal with argument "--enable-rpc=true" first. If you got "failed to bind port 6800", try to add "--disable-ipv6=true" and run aria2c again. If it works, add "--disable-ipv6=true" to Arguments entry in Plug-in setting.



Other useful arguments:

"--save-cookies=<FILE>" Save Cookies to FILE (Mozilla/Firefox(1.x/2.x)/Netscape format).



aria2 plug-in in uGet v1.10 use below 2 arguments by default:


"--continue=true" continue downloading a partially downloaded file.

"--remote-time=true" retrieve timestamp of the remote file.



Some users want to use uGet with FlashGot quietly. In the old nGet you must add uGet as new download manager and set commandline arguments in FlashGot. Now the new Commandline Settings is a easy way to do this.


uGet apply download settings from category by default but some users want to use recently download settings when creating new download. The new option 'Apply recently download settings' is for this case. Note: The recently download settings will be discard when you quit uGet.


How to disable uGet AppIndicator support:

Search <AppIndicator value='1'/> in $HOME/.config/uGet/Setting.xml and set value='0' to disable AppIndicator. This is function is for Ubuntu GNOME users who want to use original tray icon logic.
