First a quick explanation of the setup:
On "SERVER" (an Ubuntu headless server) i got a drive I access via Samba from my PC (Mint 14 Cinnamon, just installed, so 99,9% default settings). On the server is a lot of compressed files.
So here's the problem. There are two scenarios:
A) I mount the share myself via /etc/fstab and access it via the locally mounted folder (/disk2)
B) I access the share via NETWORK->Windows Network-> WORKGROUP -> SERVER in Nemo
Using A, I can right-click the first file in a series of compressed files and chose "Extract here" and it works fine (I.E. all the files belonging together gets decompressed). But with B, doing the exact same thing will give me an error when trying to decompress (a "Could not find the volume" error on file number two).
In other words, my mount works, Nemo's doesn't.
So is this some kind of permission problem or whatever or might it be a bug? I of course enter the same credentials in the pop-up from Nemo as I use in my credentials file for fstab, otherwise I couldn't have accessed the remote files in the first place. Not sure what options Nemo mount with though or what to look for to see what's wrong.
My fstab mount looks something like this:
- Code: Select all
//SERVER_IP/SHARE_NAME /MOUNT_POINT cifs rw,credentials=/home/username/.smbcredentials,uid=1000,gid=1000,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,iocharset=utf8 0 0
Just to clarify. Choosing "Open with Archive Manager" instead and decompress to my home folder does not fix it. So it's not a write permission problem on the remote server.
