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.
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.
