Install via the official uGet PPA
By using the official uGet PPA repository, ppa:plushuang-tw/uget-stable, you will be kept up to date with the latest versions of uGet automatically through Ubuntu's Software Updater.
Current Stable Version: 2.0.8
The uGet Beta/Development PPA repository, ppa:plushuang-tw/uget-devel, is for people who want the absolute latest versions of uGet even if they aren't officially ready for everyone. If you are not comfortable with Beta software, please do not use this PPA however if you are comfortable with it and want to help test future versions then that would be great.
Current Development Version: 2.1.4
Install via the Mint Software Manager
Linux Mint bases their distro only on LTS versions of Ubuntu, which in general this is just fine but this can also result in providing very old versions of packages to users. Unfortunately, uGet is one of the packages affected by this issue.
Latest version of uGet in Linux Mint's repository: 1.10.4
* It is NOT Recommended for uGetters to install from Linux Mint's official repo. Please use our PPA or one of the DEB packages.
1. Open the MSM and search for uget
2. Enable the "Universe Repository" when prompted.
3. Click the Install button on the uGet MSM page.
Install the aria2 Plugin
Using the Linux Mint repo for installing the aria2 Plugin is sufficient for the features utilized by uGet.
