Prozilla - Linux Download Accelerator

Prozilla Download Accelerator is a multi-threaded download accelerator for Linux which supports both HTTP and FTP protocols and because it makes multiple connections to the server and downloads the file in portions, thus giving a much better speed rate than the conventional download programs which use a single connection, increases download speeds with up to 200-300%.

Resuming connections is fully supported and customizable.

Because it based on ncurses, Prozilla is also a lightweight download accelerator.

1. Get prozilla 2.0.4.

[codesyntax lang="bash"]

git clone


2. Install required packages

[codesyntax lang="bash"]

apt-get install autoconf build-essential libncurses5-dev


3. Installing from source code

[codesyntax lang="bash"]

cd prozilla-2.0.4
make install


4. Troubleshouting. If an error occurs:

make[4]: Leaving directory `/home/user/prozilla-2.0.4/libprozilla/src’
make[4]: Entering directory `/home/user/prozilla-2.0.4/libprozilla’
make[4]: Nothing to be done for `all-am’.
make[4]: Leaving directory `/home/user/prozilla-2.0.4/libprozilla’
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/user/prozilla-2.0.4/libprozilla’
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/user/prozilla-2.0.4/libprozilla’
Making all in src
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/user/prozilla-2.0.4/src’

then mv -f “.deps/main.Tpo” “.deps/main.Po”; \
else rm -f “.deps/main.Tpo”; exit 1; \
In file included from main.cpp:39:
download_win.h:55: error: extra qualification ‘DL_Window::’ on member âprint_status’
make[2]: *** [main.o] Error 1

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/user/prozilla-2.0.4′
make: *** [all] Error 2

And the solutions...

Looks like the problem of error occurs because the compatibility of the compiler the GNU C/C+ + latest version, to avoid this error edit the file src/download_win.h and replace:

void DL_Window::print_status(download_t * download, int quiet_mode);


void print_status(download_t * download, int quiet_mode);

5. Do you want to make this a deb package?

[codesyntax lang="bash"]

apt-get install build-essential automake autoconf libtool pkg-config libcurl4-openssl-dev intltool libxml2-dev libgtk2.0-dev libnotify-dev libglib2.0-dev libevent-dev checkinstall
./configure && make && sudo checkinstall

  3. I have wrote a script involving a download part using prozilla download accelerator, but in each cycle, prozilla asks me "Previous download of gfs.t00z.pgrb2.0p50.f039 exists, would you like to (R)esume it or (O)verwrite it?" I dont want prozilla to ask me this but I want it to overwrite the existing file automatically. please help me sovle this problem. thanks all
