gvfs - no permission [SOLVED]

Postby maulbongo on Sun Jan 02, 2011 2:48 pm

Hello,

I got a problem using gvfs-fuse with debian. I installed it like written down here:

http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 56#p316972

Now I connect a share and the share gets mounted to /home/mip/.gvfs

But I can't access the files in there.

ls -al ~ | grep gvfs
dr-x------ 2 mip mip 0 2. Jan 2011 .gvfs

So thats all fine, if I compare it to my ubuntu machine, all is same.
And when I mount the share via Nautilus using gvfs-mount with ubuntu and debian the shares are there, but I cant access them with debian, with ubuntu it works.
What I have seen is, that there arrived today new updates for gvfs, but I can't say that it worked before.
Is there a known problem or can someone check it?

I don't know if this would help you but I run a file at startup to give me access to my public dir on my NAS drive called
nas.sh
Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh
gvfs-mount smb://neptune/public
ln -s /home/brian/.gvfs/'public on neptune' /home/brian/neptune
I installed gvfs-fuse and smbfs and made myself a member of the fuse group.
It automaticaly creates a folder called neptune in my home dir which contains the folders/files but you can point it anywhere I would think

PS did you make yourself a member of the fuse group?

I'm posting only because you referenced my post. My post said to do the following regarding gvfs:

sudo apt-get install gvfs-fuse
sudo gpasswd -a your-user-name fuse

Did you do the last step:
Then logoff and login again ( this is for the group changes to take affect ).


EDIT: What is the output of:
Code: Select all
ls -al /home/mip/.gvfs

@ukbrain:

Ok, for this I'll give it a try, but actually thats not the way it should work. And ok course I am a member of fuse group.

@altair4:

I did all the steps exactly, also the logoff and logon.

ls -al /home/mip/.gvfs

gives me:
Code: Select all
insgesamt 4
dr-x------  2 mip mip    0  3. Jan 08:11 .
drwxr-xr-x 50 mip mip 4096  3. Jan 08:11 ..


and on my ubuntu machine:
Code: Select all
insgesamt 4
dr-x------  5 mip mip    0 2010-12-20 12:17 .
drwxr-xr-x 53 mip mip 4096 2011-01-02 14:25 ..

Hi Again,

Now I did a cross check, I got an lmde machine at work and there I checked it, too.
There everything works smooth, so I tried to setup the groupmembership on my home machine again (I removed user mip from group fuse, restartet the system, then I added user mip to group fuse again) and now it's working like a charme there (just like original ubuntu behavior).

@altair4 regarding your howto, it is not neccessary to install smbclient for using gvfs-mount, this is needed for cifs mounting, here an example:

Code: Select all
mount //russell/pub /mnt/russellmnt/pub -o iocharset=utf8,uid=1000,username=mip,password=*******
, this wouldnt work if smbclient is not installed, but gvfs-mount is doing it without the smbclient (perhaps you can update your thread).

You didn't read the first sentence of my referenced post :wink:
This post is going to look scary but that's only because I'm suggesting you fix a few other things along the way. There are a number of things you need to change in order for Samba to play nice in a peer-to-peer environment in LMDE:

smbclient is used for many things, for example:

The command "smbtree" won't run without it.

If you try to access a remote Windows attached printer using the Printer utility in Mint then the "Windows Printer via Samba" will not be an available option without it.
