How can I download movies or other software from the internet on elementary? When i try to download it downloads a small file (my download manager is flareget) and then i click on it and... nothing.
This may seem a little hard, but if you're using a third-party download manager and you're having issues downloading things, it's probably the download managers fault. Instead, try using the downloader that comes integrated into your browser of choice.
You can have a set of solutions for this problem.
try using a different download manager, my recommendation is the Open source Uget.
try using the web browser's download manager.
try to download a little smaller files to check if its not the fault of ISP.
How about you try out online services like google movies? There you can build up an online library with legal movies and stream them to all your devices. Be it smartphone, tablet or desktop.
