Postby nomko on Mon Dec 31, 2012 9:58 am

Hi everybody,

Any help will be appreciated as long is helps me (and maybe others?) and solves my problem!

If you are setting up to share files between two Linux installations, you need to set up NFS shares and you probably want to use this wiki: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo

Using Gigolo to Mount Remote Samba Shares: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=52144

The title is somewhat of a misnomer since Gigolo can be used to connect to other machines using a variety of protocols.

EDIT: Well, a variety of protocols except NFS :wink:

Based on your latest series of posts it appears to be samba. Gigolo will display samba hosts automatically ( assuming samba itself is set up correctly ) when you click on the network tab. Or you can use the "Connect to Server" facility in Gigolo to connect to it by ip address, name, or even avahi ( i.e., hostname.local ) is you wish.

I have a question for you. Are all these machines yours? I mean are you the only user?

Yes, they are all mine. And both machines are connected to a Cisco Router/modem. See attached pdf.

Well, the only reason I asked the question is that you posted another topic about Samba which I tried to answer but you never responded. So I don't know if what I suggested didn't work and now you are trying Gigolo. If that's the case it most likely won't work either. Gigolo facilitates samba connection it can't fix the underlying problem you are having - if you are still having a problem.

If you are the only user among all these machines you have another option. Since this topic is about Gigolo I can show you how to connect to and if you want automatically mount the other machine at login.

On Mint14:
[1] Install the following package:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install openssh-server

[2] Make sure avahi is running:
Code: Select all
sudo service avahi-daemon status

If it is not running start it:
Code: Select all
sudo service avahi-daemon start


On Lubuntu:
[1] Install Gigolo and set preferences as I described in the HowTo above. [ STEPS 1, 2, and 4-Set gigolo to start at login ]
[2] Make sure avahi is running on that system:
Code: Select all
sudo service avahi-daemon status

If it is not running start it:
Code: Select all
sudo service avahi-daemon start

[3] Then In Gigolo go to Actions > Connect and fill in the blanks this way:

I don't know if that's the correct hostname of your Mint14 box so correct it if it is not.

You should be prompted for passwords and such and then allowed access to your machine

While still in Gigolo you can right click the "SFTP for nomko on nomko-mint14.local" icon and select Bookmark. Then Fill it out this way:
nomko2.png

If you want it to automount every time you log into Lubuntu check the "Auto Connect" box.

If all that works then do the exact same things to the other box - On Lubuntu install openssh-server and on Mint14 install Gigolo.
