    This worked for me. Installed and started it up.
    However, Jdownloader does not show up in the program menu when I search for it. There are no buttons for it in the unity launcher or anywhere else. It seems that I have to start it by going to terminal and typing ./  It starts up then, but I have to keep that terminal window open.

      I usually use “gedit filename &” so that I haven’t keep the terminal open. Maybe you could use “./ &” too.
