Hey larababa. Have you followed the "for gnome users" part of the guide or the first one with "wget"?

I didn't understand where you got the error. Do you have a directory named .cookies inside your home directory? It is hidden. In which directory did you check for the rapidshare cookie?

@axel

i am also getting the same problems as larababa, using the "for gnome users" part of the guide.

checked my home directory and the .cookies directory does not exist.

at the end of the process i get this:

Cannot open cookies file `/root/.cookies/rapidshare': No such file or directory


any help would be great

axel
I see. There is one more command I should add to the guide.

mkdir ~/.cookies

Type this first and then the wget command. smilies/wink.gif

download only HTML pages
0
Hi,
I used your script, but I've got only HTML pages (not files) from rapidshare (HTML pages with buttons to free or premium download)
Do you know how to download files ?

Thanks a lot.

how bout axel? can we use axel to download rapidshare file?

I have not tried axel. I am pretty satisfied with kget at the moment. smilies/smiley.gif

As I understand from axel's site currently it doesn't officially support loading of cookies. A patch is submitted but it hasn't been added to the stable package. You can read more and apply the patch on your own here: axel firefox cookie support

@easier wget way:
Nice one!!
For some reason aria2c doesn't work on my Desktop anymore [only on my server] and wget with a cookie never worked.

That's a nice tip, withe --auth-no-challenge option, works a treat on my desktop!

Thanks again.

Why u dont using jdownloader from http://jdownloader.org/download ? It is perfect for free an premium users for all host sites.

When I wrote this guide I didn't know jdownloader. I've heard a lot of people using it. Nonetheless I am pretty happy with kget in my KDE. smilies/smiley.gif

The main reason I would use not to use Ubuntu in the past for all my premium rapidshare downloads, was I did not have enough knowledge of the software available. I have collected a few applications suitable for ubuntu and posted them on my blog. I hope this helps someone. http://ubuntudan.blogspot.com/...nager.html
