hi i recently shifted to ubuntu 10.4.. and need a download manager. I was very comfortable with FDM(free download manager) on windows, which used to do everything form download huge file with pause and resume, download torrents, increase download speed and everything thats required. Is there a suitable for FDM on linux?

If you're using firefox as your browser you could use DownThemAll !

Alternatively, you could take a look at:

WxDownload Fast



Again, if using firefox look at FlashGot it's a great addon for working with various download managers

You may want to look for a GUI frontend for a program like wget or curl.
