Mangatux

======================

A project based in the Linux Manga downloader by Kurobyte, renewed, with some changes, bug corrections and, little by little, new features.

Dependencies:

To install the program and make it run you will need:

  • wget
  • gtkdialog
  • zenity
  • links
  • libnotify

These dependencies are needed to download the manga and to show you the gui and notifications so it's important for you to install every one.

Nevertheless, the new function, PDF DOWNLOAD, requires of an extra dependency:

  • imagemagick

With imagemagick you can download your manga directly on a pdf file which could be better for you to read your favourite manga.

Installation:
