The script no longer works. Humble Bundle changed their download page, and it seems like it will take quite some effort to get the script functioning again.

hi, i’m using KDE and would like it to use ksshaskpass automatically.

we should also be able to use the keyring/wallet to ask for the username.

an example how it could work:

if command -v ksshaskpass >/dev/null 2>&1
elif command -v ksshaskpass >/dev/null 2>&1
ASK='gnome-keyring-query get'
echo 'You can’t specify this option without ksshaskpass or gnome-keyring-query installed' >&2
exit 1


user="$($ASK "Username for $URL")"
pass="$($ASK "Password for ${user}@$URL")"

@GloW. djpohly fixed the issue and I have updated the version to include his changes.

@ejona86: I've got a few small commits to improve login handling:

Specifically, they should fix the special-characters issue and allow the user to enter the password manually (so it doesn't appear in a file or in process lists).

Unsual charachter in password (like %) break it.

@ejona86: Thanks for the hint. Somehow I must have been in a directory without write permission when I tried first. Now it is working fine. Thanks again!

@mfs. Could it be that you don't have write access to the current directory (and the download directory if you are using -d)?

ejona86 commented on 2013-07-20 16:53

@mfs. I don't know what is going on. My initial thought was that Humble Bundle just started requiring your user cookie when downloading the file, but that doesn't seem to be the case (as in, it still works for me). Was the error you got exactly "curl: Permission Denied"? Does it work if you try to download the returned URL with curl manually ("curl http://the/url")?

When I try to download a file using "hib-dlagent -u 'username' -p 'password'", curl always returns a "Permission Denied" error. Nevertheless, when invoking hib-dlagent with the -s option and feeding the returned URL to a browser (Chrome, Midori), the download is initiated.
If I try downloading using "hib-dlagent -k 'key'", I only get "Could not find URL for file:".
What am I doing wrong here?

@CPUnltd. Version 0.3 added support for gnome-keyring-based encrypted password storage
