[COMPLETED] "Remove from List"

Is there something you wish uGet provided as a feature? Let us know.

[COMPLETED] "Remove from List"

Postby test5678 » Wed Oct 03, 2012 11:56 am

Hey Boss,
i'm running version 1.8.2 in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty. One thing that i think could be improved is in the GUI if you right-click on a file in the download queue, if i want to delete a file(s) from the queue i have to select it and hit "delete" twice because the first time does nothing for some reason. Also, i think there should be a renaming of this option to "Remove from list" or something similar, to clarify that you are just clearing it from the list and not actually deleting the file from the HDD. Lastly i think there should be an option in that right-click menu to "Remove all Completed Downloads(from the queue)", which others such as IDM have, to quickly clear out the finished downloads and see what is left.



Thanks.

You are currently using an old version of uGet on an non-supported version of Ubuntu so any new features discussed or developed on new versions of uGet will not be accessible to you until you update to the 1.10.x branch which is currently supported only for 12.04 and higher.

The first delete sends it to the "Recycled" tag. If you are in the ALL view then it does not appear to do anything but it is doing something. The second delete is a permanent delete from the list. However, this does bring up an interesting issue...in Linux (& windows), Delete sends to the trash/recycle bin but Shift + Delete skips the trash/recycle bin. uGet has as of 1.10.2 holding Shift + Delete now deletes the entry and the file itself. This is valid but does not conform to what people are used to. Maybe it could be something like this...

Delete = sends entry to the Recycled tag
Shift + Delete = deletes the entry but skips the Recycled tag BUT the file stays on the drive
Ctrl + Delete / OR /Ctrl + Shift + Delete = deletes the entry (skipping Recycled) and ALSO deletes the file from the drive.

Delete File & Data is not very clear I suppose...maybe

"Delete entry from uGet" = Delete
"Delete entry from uGet (skip Recycled)" = Shift + Delete
"Delete File and entry from uGet" = Ctrl + Delete / OR / Ctrl + Shift + Delete

uGet already has this feature to see what is left and what is completed...in fact it is organized automatically in this method.

uGet displays downloads in Category form but it also displays in Status Modes.

All - shows every download regardless of status
Active - shows downloads that are currently being downloaded
Queuing - shows downloads that have been added to uGet for download but has yet to start downloading due to preferences set of how many simultaneous downloads are allowed.
Finished - shows completed downloads
Recycled - shows downloads that have been deleted from the other lists but have not been permanently deleted.

thanks for the reply.

i should have studied the program more to understand better the settings and options but there are already so many good softwares (in both windows and linux) that to completely learn each one i would have time for nothing else :(

i was just gonna say that if if see these kind of options in the right-click menu:

"Delete entry from uGet"
"Delete entry from uGet (skip Recycled)"
"Delete File and entry from uGet"

it makes more sense to me but its mostly if i see "Delete" and i don't want to actually
delete the file but just remove it from the list, i get a little nervous using that option.

not a big deal either way.

there was one other thing, a few months ago i was trying to move the default download folder to another partition and there didn't seem to be a way, of course for each individual download you can set it then but i wanted to move the default location. this was version 1.8.2 again so maybe it was already available in newer editions or i just didnt see that option for some reason.

would be good if we could set by file type (MP3, FLV, EXE, ISO, etc) to download to a specific folder as per IDM. this allows if we have multiple OS partitions to have a separate partition for just downloads and automatically sorted into various folders by file type, fwiw. perhaps its already there in newer version of uGet though.

ok, i'll upgrade to latest version.

Thanks.

I agree...it is impossible to learn everything about every app...I am not one of the developers, I am a team member but not a developer exactly...so with that said, I still don't know everything there is about uGet. I know a LOT but not all. :)

I agree to an extent because at first it threw me for a second as well so it couldn't hurt to just rephrase it to something like.

"Remove entry from uGet"
"Remove entry from uGet (skip Recycled)"
"Delete File and entry from uGet"

That way it may ease the tension of possibly deleting something you dont want to delete where as this explains it is more removing from uGet. What are your thoughts on that phrasing?

You can set the default download folder to be anything you want. The default folder is controlled on a per category basis.

So edit the properties of the "Home" category, you can rename the category and change the default folder for that category via the properties settings. This category is used by default so whatever you choose in this will be the first thing selected. (if you make additional categories, you will need to select them upon downloading)

Category properties settings can be controlled like this as of 1.6.x so you should be fine while using 1.8.x

This can not be done via the main program as of this moment but may be implemented in the future. However, uGet community user, fehhh, created a bash script to do this very thing via Flashgot/Firefox. This may be of some use to you until we can address it to the official app (no eta or guarantee that we will...at the moment)
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=6

I have not personally tested the script so I can't vouch for quality but it does appear to be solid code so it should work as suggested.

Re: [COMPLETED] "Remove from List"

After I finish the download of a number of files, I want to remove them from the list in uGet, without deleting the files. How do I accomplish that?

When I choose "Right click --> Delete Entry", the entry stays in the list (the status is now changed from "Finished" to "Recycled".) This change of status is not what I need; I need to get rid of the entry from the list. I don't want to have lists populated with "Recycled" entries that I don't want to see anymore.

Thank you.

I see and have experienced the 'double delete' thing to get files out of the queue.

This begs the question:

What is the recycled status for? If it's just to keep them around in case you want to download them again, wouldn't an 'Undo(ctrl-z)' function serve the purpose as well, reduce clutter and be clearer? (Repurpose the 'recycled' list to a hidden undo list; when the user wants a file back to download it again, ctrl-z from anywhere OUTSIDE a text input field/box brings up the list and the user can select items to bring back and categories {defaulting to original category} to bring them back to.) (I, for one, could use a clear explanation of categories. A special, no filetype category could solve this.)

And that Delete File From Disk menu/context menu option should say that specifically. Use a checkbox or dialog to skip Recycle Bin use; i.e.: deleted files go to recycle bin by default. CAVEAT: Disks/partitions mounted as 'Removable Media' do not have recycle bins (in Windows, anyway].

This assists in protecting us from our error-prone humanity.
