Hi,

Welcome to LQ!
Why do you need a downloader? Infact there is no mint downloader. You can download LinuxMint from here: http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php of your choice.

Please read the OP's question, SatyaveerArya. IDM and DAP are download managers, if you looked into what they were.

OP, depending on what desktop environment you use, you have several choices. Kget for the KDE environment is one, and GWget for Gnome is another. You've also got other options, including Firefox plugins.

A quick google shows lots of download managers for Ubuntu:

Personally, I like to use wget on the command line, but as you can see plenty of graphical ones are available.

When it comes to graphical download managers I always prefer JDownloader, it is platform and desktop independent and has a lot of useful functions.

Uget is a good download manager for Linux Mint: http://ihaveapc.com/2010/12/uget-a-g...or-linux-mint/
For HTTP or FTP download, you could try the DownThemAll plugin for Firefox. For torrent download, you could try Deluge. For downloading from file-hosting servers such as Rapidshare, you could try Tucan or JDownloader. Deluge and Tucan are available in the repositories.
You can try FatRat, an open source download manager for Linux written in C++ and built on top of the Trolltech Qt 4 library. It is rich in features and is continuously extended.

FatRat is available in the Ubuntu official repositories, but that's not the latest version (not even in Lucid) so to be able to easily install the latest FatRat in Ubuntu Karmic and Lucid you may use the following commands on the Terminal:

Code:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8

$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install fatrat
See also the official download page: http://fatrat.dolezel.info/download
