My question is how can I get uGet to download a whole directory of files? I can do one file at a time.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

This doesn't answer your question at all, but it may help someone. I often use wget from a console to do this:

Recursively download all the files that are in the ‘ddd’ folder for the url ‘http://hostname/aaa/bbb/ccc/ddd/

wget -r -np -nH –cut-dirs=1 -R index.html http://hostname/aaa/bbb/ccc/ddd/

It will download all files and subfolders in ddd directory:
recursively (-r),
not going to upper directories, like ccc/… (-np),
not saving files to hostname folder (-nH),
but to ddd by omitting first 3 folders aaa, bbb, ccc (–cut-dirs=3),
excluding index.html files (-R index.html)
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
