Installing IDM in UBUNTU using WINE

I searched a lot for a download manager for Linux and also found many but no one could compete with IDM , especially with the speed and parallel downloading of a file. So for running IDM in Ubuntu i installed wine and inside that installed a newer version of IDM but it was not running and after searching, i found that it's a bug of wine for newer versions of IDM so i downloaded an old version of IDM and installed it and now it's working fine. How to do :

  • Install wine using command : sudo apt-get install wine
  • now download some old version of IDM(below 5.18) and open it with wine windows program loader
 now follow the general instructions and install it.
