I mean i dont want other people to be able to download anything on to my linux mint 8 system.
Block downloading totally.
Thanks in advance for the help.
You didn't mention what application other people are using when they download stuff using your terminal. I'll assume Firefox, since that's most likely the medium they use. There is an add-on called Public Fox
that you can install. From there you can lock-down downloads as well as other options with a password.
