Hi!

Anyone who knows how to configure a desktop-account that only allows to write on usb (firefoxdownloads, office-docs, etc) and nowhere else?

And that also disables to copy anything from the local harddisk to usb?

The usb-port shall only be usable for writing downloaded or created data. Not for executions, shell-scripts or alike.

Thanks in advance,

dirk

I think you might be most of the way there if you mount home read-only with "ro", and have the usb storage mounted with "noexec".

I'm not sure how you could stop copying from the local harddisk though, maybe with some extreme permission settings?

Hm...

Maybe by disabeling any copying possibilities like in terminals (cp), file-browser, etc.. Or just not allowing these programs for the restricted users.
