Obviously kde3 is a ways back in time for many of us, now. However,
There was a kget app, just not in the menu. You could start it from
konsole (thus using tab-completion to get the specific name), or from run
Here, there was a single dialog that showed overall progress, with a
button to show per-download details as well. However, I'm not sure if
that was the default, or just the way I had it configured.
Also, note that konqueror had its own downloader, with kget able to
replace it, or not, as configured.
I remember one element of the kget UI was a drop-target, that you could
drop links on and it would download them. But I seldom enabled either
that, or kget in general (and eventually, I stopped installing kget), as
it seemed kget was more designed for dialup for perhaps ISDN, while even
the 600-ish kbps DSL I had before cable was fast enough the extra features
of kget just didn't seem worth the trouble. I think it may have had a
systray icon too, but my memory is very fuzzy on that.
Hopefully Dale's still around. Last I knew, he was still running kde3,
and should be able to provide rather more accurate details than my now
fuzzy memory of something now nearing a year off my system.
