Shifted from Windows? Missing Internet Download Manager?
Well, Linux has its own download manager which runs on Windows too. uGet is the IDM best suited on Linux. To install fire up your terminal and run:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:plushuang-tw/uget-stable
sudo apt update
sudo apt install uget
Also, install the aria2 plugin for better speed,
sudo apt install aria2
Now launch uGet and associate aria2 plugin in it,

To integrate uGet download manager in Firefox, you need to install FlashGot addon. Google Chrome is not supported right now.
Once installed, go to Tools -> FlashGot -> More Options in Firefox.
In General tab under Download Manager drop down list, choose uGet as the download manager. Similarly, under FlashGot Media tab, choose uGet as the default download manager. Then click OK.
Now, you can start downloading any file/link by right clicking on the FlashGot icon on top right corner of Firefox and choose the appropriate link you want to download from which will launch the uGet application. A demo of downloading a Youtube video is shown below:
