Re: When connecting to a server via Nautilus, system slows down and desktop goes black

I have never experienced anything like the background turning black and such but I have to ask you what happens when you use "Connect to Server" from Nemo since that is the default file manager instead of Nautilus..

Re: Permissions not inheriting to files and folders in Linux mint

I have never used acl's to do this opting for using a setgid instead but this part of your post is of interest: i also tried changing user umask 0002 The default umask in Mint 18 is already at 0002. The default umask in Mint 17 and earlier is 0022 because of a bug in the display manager ( that is no...

There is nowhere near enough information in your post to answer the question. ** This isn't the Ubuntu forum where if you say you are running Xubuntu 17.10 ...

Re: Can't mount DFS

Not familiar with DFS so in that context: Samba now defaults to SMB3 3 - Mounting the DFS share by gvfs (like with Nemo) is still working, is it using SMB1? There are two different "Samba's" at play here. The Linux Kernel starting with 4.13 does change the default smb dialect for CIFS from SMB1 to S...

Re: Is 18.3 stable?

The question is, what do you mean with "stable"? In the sense of running without freezes or crashes I have no objection. Regarding the number of unsolved bugs, there is a big difference; this is the reason, why no LM 18.x will get my workhorse. I run 17.3 and this will do it at least until summer; ...

Re: Open files in application stored on NAS

If I understand the question correctly I think you are looking for the mount point of the remote share. If you are using Gigolo the share is mounted at: /run/user/1000/gvfs/smb-share:server=server-name,share=share-name What you can do is create a bookmark to the gvfs location. For example, run this ...

Re: shared folders need user/password?

Nope.

Your client to this samba server will be prompted for a user name and password. The client will then have to pass the username of ian with his samba password.

Re: shared folders need user/password?

All of your shares are of this form: [Pictures] path=/home/ian/Pictures comment= usershare_acl=Everyone:R,Unix User\ian:F, guest_ok=n They all require a samba user name and password to gain access. So if you wanted the linux user ian to gain access to the share you need to have him added to the samb...

Re: improvement to System-config-samba and Caja samba share browsing

I don't want this to come across as being harsh but you posted this request in the wrong forum. Mint doesn't own system-config-samba. Ubuntu does. And I really don't think they will do anything with it. The version of that package in Mint 18 is 1.2.63-0ubuntu6. The version in Xubuntu 18.04 ( Alpha )...

Re: mounting NAS problems

I hate working with NAS devices. Everything in your post would indicate a protocol level mismatch. Um ... Well ... maybe the nas disabled SMB1 but it's still not able to handle the default SMB3 that cifs uses in the more resent kernels .... Instead of vers=1.0 use vers=2.0 : sudo mount -t cifs -o us...

I'm assuming the shared folder is on the Mint system. If that is so please post the output of the following commands:

Re: Ping windows computer in home LAN

An smb server broadcasts it's netbios name to everyone on your network. If you are a smb client and lucky you can access it by that netbios name because the client is set up to listen for those broadcasts which is why smb://Windows works. Pinging is a DNS thing and the name you are pinging is a host...

Re: Failed to retrieve share list from server: Connection timed out

It's smbd not smb:

Code: Select all

sudo service smbd start
Edit: by any chance is samba-common-bin not installed:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install samba-common-bin
