File sharing glitch

Postby chiefjim on Sun Oct 18, 2009 1:58 pm

Installed M7 KDE on my laptop and am quite impressed. Sharing files with my home network is a challenge.

I have two desktops on the network. Both are KDE3.5 one using Samba3.2.5 the other 3.0.33. These have been setup for sometime and known to work well.

Each desktop can see the laptop and mount shares. The laptop sees each of the desktops but fails to even identify the available shares.

Is this one of those KDE4 items still in the problem phase?
Desktop:
Mint-17 64 bit with Mate
Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H
AMD Athlon II X3 425
CORSAIR 4GB DDR2 800
640GB HDD WD Black 7200rpm

Laptop:
Acer Aspire AS5552-5898
Mint-17 64 bit with Mate
AMD Phenom II Triple-Core N830
4GB Memory DDR3
500GB HDD 5400rpm

Not sure but one thing you could do is use NFS, which I find to be easier than Samba, if you are only sharing folders and files between Linux computers. Have a look here.

I use this across my desktop, running KDE, and my notebook running XFCE. Works great.

Hey look at him! I'll never live that way.

Hm you could also try the openssh-server, go to dolphin and move files with fish://[IP-Adresse of the ssh-server]
