What is Rapidshare Download?
rapidshare-dl (Rapidshare Download) is a program which helps downloading files from Rapidshare using a Premium Account. The files to download can be specified as parameters, or they can be retrieved from a local file, an URL or from the clipboard.
If you use Debian, Ubuntu, or another distro which uses deb packages, you can download the deb package (rapidshare-dl-0.3.6.deb) and simply double-click on it to launch the installer, or you can add my repository to your sources.list file, so that your distro can inform you of new releases.
If you choose the second method, open the file /etc/apt/sources.list with your favorite editor as root and add this line:
Update the list of packages writing
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/zootropo/ubuntu intrepid main
sudo aptitude updateon the terminal, and install the application by writing
sudo aptitude install rapidshare-dl.
If you use other distribution, download the tar.gz: rapidshare-dl-0.3.6.tar.gz, uncompress it, and execute the command
make install with root privileges.
This program doesn't have a GUI, it has to be executed from the command line (Applications > Accessories > Terminal).
