New 'Steadyflow' Download Manager for Ubuntu


Steadyflow is a new download manager for Ubuntu that uses a simple 'Transmission' like interface and has a impressive list of features.

  • A basic GNOME download manager, supporting many URL protocols. This includes, among others, HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and SMB.
  • Pausing, resuming, and restarting downloads upon application restart
  • An application indicator, or a notification area icon.
  • An instant search/filter box.
  • Ability to add downloads via the command line and D-Bus, for browser extension writers.
  • Notification bubbles upon starting and finishing downloads (can be disabled).

Planned Features:
  • A monochrome icon.
  • Filter by file types.
  • Different download folders for different file types.
  • Limiting download speed and number of files downloaded simultaneously.
  • Multiple download streams per file.


Download Instructions:

Stable Version:

Run following commands in the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sikon/steadyflow
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install steadyflow

Daily Builds Version (not for casual users):

Run the following commands in the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sikon/steadyflow-daily
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install steadyflow

Now we just have to wait for someone to write browser extensions for this.
